What is BOOSTplus?
What is BOOSTplus?

It is a fuel enhancer that reduces #fossilfuel consumption by up to 20%, which reduces the CO2 #emissions by the same value. It does not store it, or sequester it, it simply cuts the output by 20% through more efficient combustion and increased power to the vehicle. Most vehicles only combust an average of 75% of the fuel in the engine and the unburnt part that does not convert to carbon deposits in the engine is then converted by the heat in the exhaust system, simply generating more heat with no other benefit – wasted energy. By reducing the unburnt part of the fuel, the vehicle now has the full benefit of the energy from each litre of fuel consumed available as power to the engine. Nothing wasted.

How BOOSTplus Works
How BOOSTplus works

In very simple terms the biggest problem that vehicle and truck engines have is the emissions they produce and the carbon build-up that makes them less and less fuel efficient over time or while the engine is idling and operating at lower rpm. Part of the problem comes from incomplete combustion causing carbon to build up as a by-product, clogging injector nozzles and the engine.


BOOSTplus fuel enhancer contains natural active components that cleans the engine by removing the carbon deposits, and combines with the hydrocarbons to improve atomisation during injection, improving the combustion rate from an average of 73% of each liter of fuel to over 90%, leaving less unburned fuel to create carbon deposits. This means up to 23% more fuel burned per liter than without BOOSTplus.

What fuels does BOOSTplus work in?
What fuels?

BOOSTplus can work in all oil based fossil fuels, Petrol, Diesel, Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO), Light Fuel Oil (LFO), MGO and Biodiesel

In Diesel...

In the case of diesel, through the above process of improved efficiency, diesel now produces less other particulate emissions, in particular particulate aromatic hydrocarbon emissions, because we help the aromatic hydrocarbons to combust more effectively. Less NOx is produced from unburnt fuel in the exhaust system and during combustion. Idling is known to significantly worsen the production of NOx in vehicles. Because we improve the combustion process and very little unburnt fuel not exits the combustion chamber, there is less possibility for the formation of harmful emissions  BOOSTplus Petrol & Diesel

How is BOOSTplus made?
How it's made

BOOSTplus is 100% natural with no synthetic chemicals added. It is 97% fatty acid methyl esters (FAME), from 100% natural sustainably farmed and produced palm oil. When it combusts, it adds no new emissions or unknown chemicals. It is simply a fatty acid Ester based hydrocarbon chain, similar to what is in #fossilfuels, but with a few extra oxygen molecules.


We produce the active ingredients in a separate laboratory, then ship it to the blending facility where it is accurately blended with the palm oil base in large mixing vats before being poured into the containers for packing and shipping.

Can BOOSTplus damage my engine?
Can BOOSTplus damage my engine?

Only contamination in your lubricating oils or heavy metals in your fuel can cause physical damage to your engine.


As BOOSTplus is 100% natural and 97% fatty acid methyl ester (FAME – which is already added to the fuel as a primary additive to improve lubricity by the refinery), it is not possible for BOOSTplus to damage your engine. It combines with the hydrocarbon fuel molecules and then combusts 100%. 


You have a risk of contaminated fuel clogging up your fuel system, but every shipment of BOOSTplus is visually inspected for contamination before shipment and is added in such minute quantities compared to the volume of fuel, that it is hard to envisage how it could clog up your fuel filters. 


You are perfectly safe. But, just to give you extra comfort, we are insured with product liability insurance just in case it gets contaminated and causes a blockage in your fuel system.

Will using BOOSTplus void my warranty?
Will BOOSTplus invalidate my warranty?

Each Engine manufacturer will have different advice and exclusions on fuel additives. BOOSTplus is categorised as a Primary fuel enhancer, NOT an additive (usually added as FAME content by Fuel suppliers. As BOOSTplus is 100% natural and FAME, our additive does not change the fuel composition and maintains EN 590 (ESMA) standards.


Very few things can actually legally void a vehicle’s warranty. Unless you use a vehicle in competitive sports or constantly overloaded and it causes physical damage to the engine it is hard to envisage how a warranty can be voided. Remember that the warranty generally only protects you against defective parts or workmanship causing failure or damage within the warranty period.

What if it WERE proven that a non-approved additive damaged my engine?

What can happen if you do use non-approved engine lubricants and they cause damage, you will not be covered – you will be required to pay for the damage caused. It will not be covered by the warranty.

There is another way in which we help to reduce emissions – carbon sequestration.

What is the Environmental impact of BOOSTplus?
The impact on the Environment

BOOSTplus is sustainable power produced at a lower cost with no adverse impact on the environment.


BOOSTplus is 100% natural, sourced from sustainably farmed sources, grown on trees that sequester more carbon than most, using a fraction of the palm oil used by biofuels for more benefit. And it will not only reduce your operating cash flow requirements for your fuel budget, and improve your bottom line – it will reduce your CO2 emissions by up to 20% and your particulate emissions by over 60%.


Because BOOSTplus will significantly reduce particulate emissions from diesel, it means a more efficient use of existing fossil fuels that will cause less damage and harm to the environment, and that has been sustainably farmed.

The impact on Particulate Emissions

You will reduce your emissions by up to 80% reduction in NOx and other particulates,  achieved and recorded on stationary diesel generators in 2018/19 tests.

BOOSTplus in trials
Can I trial BOOSTplus?

Most people doubt the experience of others will be applicable to their fleet because their operation is ‘different’. An engine is an engine, and fuel is fuel. However, we don’t mind. Click on the link and request a trail.


You pay for it, test it and we guarantee you will see at least an 8% saving. If you don’t, subject to the terms and conditions (accurate data collection and recording, no other fine print) of our trail agreement, we will refund you your money.

Do you offer trials of BOOSTplus fuel enhancer?

Yes, we suggest that you trial the supplement on more than one vehicle of the same kind where possible (fleets, etc.) as this will allow more consistent results in the event of unexpected leave, vehicle repairs, breakdowns or recording errors. 

Is there a trial guarantee?

We guarantee that you will see at least an 8% increase in fuel economy. Why 8%? This is to cover the cost of BOOSTplus during the trial in ALL countries. Typically, on a $1 per litre diesel fuel price, the supplement cost will be less than 3% of the savings. That means that even during the trial, we guarantee you will save more than the BOOSTplus clean up cost. You can't lose!

What data should I gather before a trial?

Ask us for our trial pack that will give you the trial calculator and template for data collection. 

BOOSTplus implementation
How do we rollout out BOOSTplus across our fleet?

This is the most critical part for success. We have produced a full manual, drawing on the experience of our clients and users, to help you through the process. Following your successful trail, our team will guide you through this process, step by step. It is part of our service. We offer solutions to your issues, we don’t just sell you a bottle of a mass produced additive. That has no value to us. Only happy successful clients doing repeat business with us based on a mutual successful outcome adds value.

Central Tank or Manual Dosing?

During the trial phase, all dosing will be manual to ensure the correct amount of BOOSTplus dosing and accurately recorded fuel and distance. During and after the trial, our team will sit with you to work out the simplest and most effective way to dose your engines and fleet.

What is BOOSTplus?
Is BOOSTplus another Injector Cleaner?
Isn't it just another injector cleaner though?

BOOSTplus is a 100% natural solution to cleaning engines and improving combustion naturally, without creating new emissions. It simply works.


Injector cleaners or engine cleaners are synthetic hazardous chemicals. BOOSTplus is 100% natural and non-hazardous. Once we’ve cleaned the engine, we keep it clean, improve the fuel combustion and help you to save money by reducing the amount of fuel you need to do the same work. You get to do more with the same amount as before.


1. The active component to clean the carbon deposits from the engine during the clean-up phase, and then to combine with the aromatic fuel molecules to help them burn better during combustion.


2. The passive component - Palm oil or Fatty Acid Methyl Ester- (FAME which is normally added by most refiners as a replacement lubricant for the reduced sulphur content) – acts as a natural lubricant , but also as a detergent, keeping your engine clean and preventing new carbon deposits from forming

What is the biggest difference?

BOOSTplus is 100% natural and does not contain harmful chemicals. BOOSTplus starts working on the fuel after cleaning, where injector cleaners stop.

What are the financial benefits of BOOSTplus?
What is the Return on Investment period (ROI)? 

It has a return on investment (ROI) in month 1. No extra cash needed from your cashflow. Take some of the cash from your fuel budget. Invest it in BOOSTplus, reduce your cash required for fuel budget, and save up to 20% in fuel costs from month 2 onwards.


What is the impact on Cashflow?

With a small upfront investment in BOOSTplus, you see a Return on Investment (ROI) in the 1st month and a reduced spend on fuel from month 2. Here is the paradox - it is not an expense. It will INCREASE your profits. Doesn’t make sense? Cashflow positive straight after the clean up (usually less than 2 weeks)


If you now save 20% on your fuel budget, and that drops through to your bottom line, think what the impact is on your gross profits? One of your biggest expenses after staff costs reduced by up to 20% in 1 month.


How do I justify the additional cost?

BOOSTplus is not a cost. You are already paying for your fuel, with BOOSTplus, you pay less for your fuel EVERY month you are using it. Think of it as a 15-20% discount voucher off your fuel & CO2 emissions.
