Development of New Diesel Additive
Recognizes Growth of Diesel Personal Vehicles in U.S.

Houston, TX (January 17, 2017) — Additech, Inc. – Additech, the nation’s technological leader in at-the-pump fuel additive delivery solutions has announced the pilot market testing of a newly developed additive engineered specifically for diesel fuel, Additech Diesel Guard. The pilot test will begin on Monday, January 23, 2017 at eight retail locations in five states that provide a cross-section of seasonal driving conditions.

This latest Additech initiative will capitalize on the growth of diesel vehicles in the United States. Since 2010, sales of diesel cars, SUVs and light duty trucks have grown at an annual compounded growth rate of over fourteen percent, exceeding that of the total market. This growth is particularly driven by the American driver’s recent attraction to diesel powered cars and SUVs, while light-duty trucks continue to build on their traditional popularity. This growth is despite the average upcharge of $5,000 in purchase price for a diesel engine when comparing model to model.

“The American driver is clearly embracing diesel powered personal vehicles,” says Additech President & CEO Ryan Zafris, “and we see an equally clear opportunity to help drivers protect their investment and get the most out of their vehicle performance. We’re excited to bring Diesel Guard to market and anticipate very strong consumer response.”

Diesel Guard will be available at the following locations:

  • 6010 North Fry Road, Katy, TX 77449
  • 8508 North Navarro Street, Victoria, TX 77904
  • 2301 South Canal Street, Carlsbad, NM 88220
  • 1825 West Joe Harvey Blvd., Hobbs, NM 88240
  • 603 South Cumberland, Lebanon, TN 37087
  • 505 Latiolais Road, Breaux Bridge, LA 70517
  • 2436 South Highway 287, Lafayette, CO 80026
  • 12820 Oneida Street, Thornton, CO 80602

Diesel Guard and Additech gasoline additives are also sold commercially for use by both private and government fleets.
