What is Vehicle Additive?

While the first meaning of additive in the dictionary is “supplement”, the second meaning is “another substance that is added to something”. In direct proportion to these meanings, vehicle additives, depending on the nature of the selected vehicle additive, are added to the basic substances such as fuel, oil, and coolant used for the operation of the vehicle’s main systems and help the functioning of the vehicle’s working parts. We can divide vehicle additives into 4 main headings according to the region where they are added and where they benefit; these are fuel additives, oil additives, coolant additives, and transmission oil additives, respectively.

How Should Fuel Additive Selection Be Made?

Fuel additives are the types of additives that you add to your vehicle’s gasoline or diesel fuel, depending on the type you will use, and are preferred to benefit the operation of the vehicle fuel system. Brio brand supplies 5 types of high-quality fuel additives for various purposes and fuel systems.

Fuel Additive selection should be made separately for diesel or gasoline vehicles. This is because the diesel fuel system and the gasoline fuel system are different from each other. After fuel selection, an additive choice can be made according to our personal preferences or seasonally. For example, Diesel Fuel Antifreeze additives may be preferred during winter months. After general maintenance, Diesel Injector Cleaner can be preferred for Diesel vehicles and Gasoline Injector Cleaner can be preferred for Gasoline vehicles. There is also a fuel additive specially produced for LPG vehicles, and this additive can be preferred for LPG vehicles. DPF Additive, which is a more special type of additive, can be preferred by diesel vehicle owners to specifically protect the exhaust system and Diesel Particulate Filter.

Fuel Additive Types

  • Diesel Injector Cleaner: Diesel injector cleaning is preferred to increase the cetane number in the fuel, to prevent corrosion and wear that may occur in the fuel ignition system, to reduce engine operating noise, and to reduce the harmful exhaust gas emulsion to a certain extent.
  • Gasoline Injector Cleaner: It helps to clean the gasoline injector, carburetor, and the entire gasoline fuel system and maintain it in the most optimal conditions. It removes valve sticking, reduces gasoline consumption, and prevents corrosion. Of course, this contribution is beneficial in reducing harmful gas emulsion. It provides a significant performance increase in your vehicle by increasing fuel performance.
  • LPG Additive: It helps reduce wear on valves and valve seats in LPG vehicles, preventing loss of compression and eliminating valve stickiness. It protects the fuel system for a long time by cleaning the fuel boiler and fuel system from harmful deposits. One of its most important features is to help the starter run smoothly.
  • Diesel Fuel Antifreeze: It prevents diesel from freezing and crystallizing in extremely cold weather by reducing the freezing point of fuel in diesel vehicles by 10-12 degrees. Prevents slow fuel flow or cold-induced obstruction of fuel flow and gelation in fuel filters, valves, injectors, and the fuel system. First of all, crystallization that may occur at the bottom of the fuel tank due to cold is completely eliminated.
  • DPF Cleaning Additive: This additive, which helps clean the diesel particulate filter in diesel vehicles, reduces the ignition temperature that rises due to residue accumulated in the filter. This ensures that the system is cleaned and the EGR, Turbo compressor, and valves are cleared of residue. A clean exhaust system means a clean carbon emulsion.

How to Use Fuel Additives?

Pour a bottle of Fuel Additive into the fuel tank of your stopped vehicle before refueling. Then get fuel. One bottle of additive is sufficient for 40 – 60 liters of fuel.

What is Oil Additive? What is Oil Additive Used For?

Engine oil has an important place as fuel in vehicles in order for the vehicle’s engine systems to function flawlessly. No vehicle can run smoothly without engine oil, because engine oil prepares the necessary ground for the pistons, valves, and working parts in the engine to work, and it must lubricate and reduce friction of this system that operates at high speed. Brio additives are produced in special factories in Europe according to special formulas developed by engineers, taking into account all these requirements. You can safely use these additives, which are an excellent product of European technique and Brio quality, in your vehicles.

How to Choose an Oil Additive?

Starting a vehicle is one of the situations that wears out the engine the most. When the vehicle starts, the entire system, which has stopped, is activated for the first time, and good vehicle oil condition is of great importance to prevent possible parts wear and corrosion that may occur during operation. Oil additives, like fuel additives, vary according to their properties. For example, Engine Interior Cleaner is recommended to clean the soot and carbon residues that have formed inside the engine. Boron Additive and Engine Oil Additive MoS2 are used to extend the quality and life of the engine oil and to reduce the engine wear coefficient. Engine Oil Leak Preventer is used to prevent possible leaks that may occur from sealed and gasketed areas in the engine. In vehicles with a start-stop system, since there is a lot of stopping and cranking, a specially formulated Start-Stop additive is used for this, and finally, it is recommended to use Oil Smoke Suppressor to reduce oil burning and reduce blue smoke emission in oil-burning engines.

  • Boron Additive: Anti-oxidant and friction-reducing ester boron structure works in perfect harmony with all standard engine oils. It creates a protective layer in the engine system under high pressure and temperature, minimizing the wear and tear of engine parts due to temperature and abrasion.
  • Engine Interior Cleaner: This oil-based product completely cleans the engine interior from residues such as adhesive, dirt, rust and residue. It plays an important role in removing liquids such as carbon residue, fuel residue and water from the engine. In this way, it reduces carbon emission and reduces fuel consumption, allowing the oil to function at an optimal level.
  • Engine Oil Additive MoS2: With its Molybdenum Sulfur structure, it prevents wear and damage by creating a protective layer on the working parts of the engine. It ensures optimal use of engine power. MoS2 particles continue to protect the engine during cold starts and emergencies. It provides long-lasting engine performance and protection, allowing you to drive your vehicle safely and with pleasure.
  • Engine Oil Leak Preventer: It prevents possible oil leaks in the engine and prevents greater damage. It helps close the leakage holes and allows the engine to regain its former power. Its formula, which improves the viscosity of engine oil, reduces blue exhaust gas emissions. It does not contain any harmful solvents.
  • Oil Smoke Cutter: It is a special product designed to cut exhaust smoke emissions against oil burning. It contains a dense mixture of chemical polymers, viscosity increasers, anti-oxidants, corrosion inhibitors, and diluents. It reduces exhaust smoke and contributes to extending engine life by reducing oil consumption.
  • Start Stop Engine Oil Additive: Increases lubrication in engines that start and shut down frequently. Thanks to its protective and adhesive MoS2 film, it provides direct protection when the engine is started cold. It minimizes friction resistance, protects against corrosion, prevents oil sedimentation, and prevents oil channels from clogging. At the same time, it neutralizes aggressive combustion acids and regenerates used engine oil active substances.
