HeatForceTM Additive – Sprague recommends its HeatForceTM additive in all heating oil applications. Sprague’s HeatForceTM additive includes four primary components to improve heating oil capabilities. A fuel stabilizer helps to prevent sludge and control the sedimentation that plugs filters, strainers and nozzles. A dispersant cleans the fuel system, allowing any impurities to more easily pass through fuel lines, filters and strainers. An included corrosion inhibitor prevents rust from forming throughout the entire fuel handling system. Finally, the HeatForceTM additive contains a metal deactivator to counteract fuel degradation that can occur when fuel interacts with metals such as copper. HeatForce® premium heating oil is available at select Sprague terminals or HeatForceTM additive alone can also be delivered to your site via drum and tote. Sprague’s HeatForceTM additive works exceptionally well with Bioheat® fuel blends, delivering all of the HeatForceTM additive advantages plus the benefit of lowered emissions.
RoadForceTM Additive – Sprague suggests its RoadForceTM additive in all diesel applications. Sprague’s RoadForceTM additive works to improve the fuel system operation and lower operating costs. Detergents help to remove existing deposits, minimize emissions and improve fuel economy. A corrosion inhibitor forms a protective barrier between metal engine components, maximizing engine life. A fuel stabilizer is added to reduce the gum and sediment that can form after extended fuel storage. Demulsifiers and dispersants reduce water-related problems by removing any entrained water. Finally, the wax crystal modifier and deicer help prevent ice crystals from forming and lower the cold weather operability point of diesel vehicles, reducing the dependency on power-robbing kerosene. RoadForce® premium diesel fuel is available at select Sprague terminals. Sprague exclusively offers HeatForce® Premium Heating Oil at our River Road terminal, bringing the benefits of a premium fuel package to all of our customers.
Blended fuels and the use of additives offer a variety of opportunities to dealers. Because every situation is different, we encourage all customers to speak with us prior to implementing any additive program. Sprague works directly with customers each day to determine what specific handling or blending requirements, if any, would be required.
