FAQ

What is H2OIL Corporation and “F2-21 eeFuel“ additive?

H2OIL Corporation is a private company that was established in 1990 and is headquartered in Silicon Valley, California, US. The Corporation specializes in the examinations of the combustion process and has developed a liquid fuel additive using nanotechnology under the trademark F2-21 eeFuel.

F2-21 eeFuel additive can be used in such fuels as gasoline, diesel fuel, aviation fuel, biofuel, fuel-oil residue, liquefied petroleum gas. It can be introduced into the fuel flow at the refineries, into the gas-tank truck through the fuel metering unit or even at an ordinary gas station.

What are the advantages of  “F2-21 eeFuel“ additive use?

The vehicles which use F2-21 eeFuel additive have a significantly lower level of emissions (by up to 10%), fuel saving (by up to 15 %), more clean engine oil and the ability to use fuel with lower octane rating (92 instead of 95). The boilers or furnaces which use F2-21 eeFuel additive, have improved their fuel saving parameters (by up to 15 %), reduced emissions (50%) and increased the operating periods between the operational shutdowns.

The widespread use of “F2-21 eeFuel“ additive can help solve three major problems:

  • essentially facilitate the life of ordinary consumers and businessmen (due to fuel and transportation costs reduction)
  • air pollution abatement (impact on human health and environment)
  • saving the limited natural resource (crude oil)

Reduced dependence on oil imports will provide economic benefits and can become a national strategy. One can also get a benefit from the sales of CO/CO2 emission quota (Kyoto Protocol).
 
How does “F2-21 eeFuel“ additive work?

F2-21 eeFuel additive forms a microemulsion when blended with a typical hydrocarbon fuel. The “Nano”-dimension of this technology allows you to control the exact size of droplets of an aqueous emulsion. The droplets of water can be potent catalysts of the combustion process, but only if they will be “nano”-sized. This catalytic effect will significantly accelerate the combustion process within a standard combustion range, and extend this range to promote low temperature combustion.

The efficient combustion is mainly dependent on the ability of the engine to quickly convert the liquid fuel into steam, and then uniformly blend the vaporized fuel with the correct amount of air. Any improvement in these processes will not only increase the engine power but will also improve the fuel efficiency.

During the beginning of fuel combustion in the combustion chamber, the water droplets in F2-21 eeFuel are quickly heated and literally explode (water is converted to steam). These microexplosions result in two significant effects:

  • larger fuel droplets (which remain liquid) disperse and become smaller which enables them to evaporate more quickly
  • more intense local turbulence improves fuel vapors and air mixing

All engines are somehow different in their “cycle-to-cycle” power output for each individual cylinder. This difference may reach 20% and produces the effect which is known as “cyclic irregularity”. This inevitable irregularity steals power from the engine, while the fly wheel constantly stores and releases the energy trying to mechanically smoothen the engine power.

Cyclic nonuniformity occurs due to inherent variability of the rate of combustion. Some combustion processes are slow, the others are fast. F2-21 eeFuel additive increases the speed of the slow combustion cycles, improving the mixing of fuel with air, eliminates misfires and “runs” the combustion process immediately after the spark.

How is fuel saving achieved during
“F2-21 eeFuel“ additive application?

Maximum fuel saving is achieved by combination of several different mechanisms:

  • Microexplosions of water droplets improve fuel atomization and its mixing with air. This enables fuel saving by up to 2%
  • Release of air nanocatalysts because of microexplosions for improved combustion. This will further increase saving by up to 3%
  • The cleaning effect of the combustion chamber from deposits. This will further increase saving by up to 4%
  • “F2-21 eeFuel“ additive regulates combustion process by accelerating “slow combustion cycles”. It reduces cyclic irregularity giving additional effect of up to 5%
  • Catalytic effect enables low-temperature combustion of fuel-air mixture. This enables fuel saving by up to 1%.

Not all the effects above may appear in different types of petrol and diesel engines. Therefore, individual fuel-saving values may vary considerably by up to 20%.

How “F2-21 eeFuel“ fuel additive cleans the combustion chamber from deposits?

When the “steam explosions” of particles of emulsified water reach the surface of the combustion chamber of the engine, then a very mild and gradual “steam cleaning” effect follows, due to which the deposits which accumulated in the chamber are gradually removed.

When the combustion chamber is clear from deposits, the heat transfer to the cooling system is significantly improved. This allows to combust the fuel at lower temperatures, to reduce NOx emissions and to use fuel with a lower octane rating (92 instead of 95).

The fuels which are used with F2-21 eeFuel additive feature more clean combustion and, consequently, do not form any uncomplete combustion products, such as the particles of abrasive carbon deposit, which can contaminate the engine oil. This means that the engine oil in engines running on fuels modified by F2-21 eeFuel additive is much cleaner (allowing you to increase the oil change interval).

Who can use
“F2-21 eeFuel“ additive?    

F2-21 eeFuel additive can be used for any gasoline/diesel engine, including two stroke engines and four stroke engines, as well as the engines of freight and passenger transport, buses, tractors, locomotives, gas turbines, motorcycles, river going vessels/seagoing vessels, lawn mowers, domestic boilers and stationary power generators.

The steam boilers and furnaces which run on light oil products, fuel-oil residue and even technical propane butane mixture, can use F2-21 eeFuel additive as well.

What is the difference of “F2-21 eeFuel“ additive based on nanotechnologies from conventional additives?

Regular fuel additives are produced based on old and proven petroleum technologies. They are mature, clear and fully developed technologies with very little potential for further significant improvement.

F2-21 eeFuel uses nanotechnology to achieve economic efficiency which has previously seemed unachievable for traditional technologies. Manipulation with matter within the nano-dimension range allows using such properties that normal-sized particles are lacking.

H2OIL Corporation uses nanotechnology to make the water droplets of such size at which they become highly catalytically active. At the same time, this nano-size provides creation of huge catalytic surfaces in the combustion area, even when using very small amounts of additives. 

What are the results of “F2-21 eeFuel“ additive testing? 

H2OIL Corporation has been testing F2-21 eeFuel additive for over 20 years already and almost immediately it became clear that the standard stationary life tests of engines which are used to confirm the claimed advantages of the conventional additives cannot be used for testing the features of F2-21 eeFuel additive. Only the actual performance tests can show the true performance of F2-21 eeFuel additive.

H2OIL Corporation receives the test results regarding the abatement of harmful emissions, as well as the reports from individual consumers, from both official and unofficial sources, to create a database on the additive. A large database has already been collected that provides a means of calculating the averages possible effect from the use of F2-21 eeFuel fuel additive in various fields. Typical results regarding the abatement of harmful emissions are as follows:

Fuel type НС СО Nox PM10 CO2
Petrol - 50%
- 50%
- 30% - 40 %
- 15%
Diesel fuel -  20% - 15% - 20 % - 40 % - 10 %

The results regarding fuel saving are averaged in the same manner. Test results obtained from a number of sources are readily available on customer's request.

What is the easiest way of blending the “F2-21 eeFuel“ additive?  

F2-21 eeFuel additive has already been registered with the United States Federal Environmental Protection Agency as a “multipurpose” fuel additive for use with gasoline and diesel fuel (both for wholesale and retail consumption). The only elements contained in F2-21 eeFuel additive are carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen and sulfur.

The infrastructure which allows extensive use of fuel additives has already been organized. The oil companies introduce many fuel additives directly into the flow of fuel at the refinery on a regular basis. Fuel suppliers may introduce the additives into the fuel on the loading racks when filling the gas-tank trucks. The ordinary consumers can buy the bottled additive in retail and add it to the fuel by themselves during refueling at the gas station.
