Improved Fuel Efficiency government approved testing
Over the years many of our customers tell us that after running Cost Effective Products through their vehicles and equipment they actually “run better than new!”(including noticeably improved fuel efficiency). Well, they’re dead right!
And now, here’s the proof…
It stands to reason that if you clean up a dirty engine, it’ll probably run better, right? But, what about a brand new vehicle – is it possible to achieve Improved Fuel Efficiency?
To answer this question, we spent hours researching what type of testing is available and more importantly what accreditation did the facility have. During our enquiries we were referred multiple times to the Brisbane City Council, who operate an independent, federal government approved Emissions Testing Centre for the “DT80 Test” procedure .
The DT80 Test is:
- designed to reflect real world operating conditions
- loaded compensated to 50% maximum payload
- Involves three bursts of maximum acceleration to 80kph
- An 80kph cruise component
- Accurate fuel consumption measurements
We took a brand new 2017 Isuzu DMax ute to the testing facility on two separate occasions. One test being the vehicle in standard new vehicle condition. The other test was completed using Cost Effective Maintenance products.
Government approved testing confirms improved fuel efficiency
The DT80 Test confirmed several positive results.
- improved fuel efficiency under acceleration
- improved fuel efficiency under cruise mode (7.8% saving)
- Overall improved fuel efficiency (4.7% saving)
These results were directly achieved by using our Diesel Performance Pack, which contains FTC Decarbonizer, CRD Fuel Enhancer and AW10 Antiwear.
In this modern age there are not many opportunities to improve fuel efficiency in new vehicles and equipment, and many off the shelf products are unable to show any testing results what-so-ever. But by catalyzing combustion, optimizing injector response and reducing friction throughout the engine and drive-line, we have demonstrated measurable improvements in real life stop start conditions.

When using Cost Effective Maintenance products, not only do you get the great protection and much longer life, which they’re famous for, but your vehicles will use less fuel and have more power! Now proven, even in brand new vehicles and equipment!
Our Diesel Performance Packs and Petrol Performance Packs are great for all engines. While these results are for brand new vehicles, owners of older vehicles and equipment may experience even better results.
