X1R Octane Booster Proven to be the Best of the Best!
With the sudden global increase in fuel prices South East Asia has been impacted like the rest of the world and prices at the pumps have sky rocketed. To save money motorist have been tempted to pump lower grade fuels and suffer the loss of power and the increased noise from the engine. Running on a lower grade fuel will eventually damage your engine as the combustion process causes pinging and excess carbon build-up. This is why some motorists have started to put an Octane Booster into their cars and hopefully avoid any damage.
South East Asia has seen a massive increase in the amount of Octane Booster on sale, most in fancy looking brightly coloured packaging designed to catch the buyer’s eye. When you read the details on the packaging, they all talk about being able to significantly increase the Octane or RON of a fuel by significant, sometimes fantastic, amounts. The trouble is how do we the ordinary motorist know who is the best and which one really delivers.
In a way the answer to that question is easy you send samples to a lab and get them tested, so that is precisely what we at X1R Global Ltd did. We wanted to know just how well we compared to all of our competitors out there in the market and it just so happens that we know a prestigious laboratory in Singapore called Intertek – Caleb Brett wher e using the ASTM D2699 protocol we can test the Octane of a fuel.
We gathered up a number of our competitor products from around South East Asia and sent these along with a representative sample of fuel, in this case Petronas RON95, down to Singapore with the aim of testing our competitors claims, just how good are they really. For each of the products to be tested Intertek added 60ml to 1000ml of fuel and then sat back and waited for the results of the ASTM designed test.
Once again X1R came out on top and by quite a margin as well. In this test when using X1R OCB the octane rating of the sample Petronas fuel went from RON 95 to a whopping RON98.4 which is of course an amazing result. But there is something else you need to know, X1R Octane Booster is almost the lowest cost one on the market as well (see chart below) and has one of the highest treat rates.
What this means is if you add X1R Octane Booster to your fuel you will get a boost in the RON, an increase in power and economy and a decrease in knocking and pinging, got to be worth a try. What it also means is that X1R really is the Best of the Best of the Best.
