A clean engine uses less fuel, pollutes less and lasts longer
While new powertrains deliver increasingly high performance, they are also increasingly sensitive to buildup. An accumulation of deposits can affect the engine's operation and negatively impact performance, resulting in higher fuel consumption, a rise in harmful emissions and less power.
That's why TOTAL EXCELLIUM New Generation's formulation has been optimized with specific detergent additives to clean the engine's vital components and keep them clean over time. The result is up to 93% less buildup for diesel engines and up to 99% less for gasoline engines.
By eliminating deposits on injection systems, TOTAL EXCELLIUM New Generation keeps engines performing at their optimum level over time. The fuels' additives also include molecules that reduce friction between metal parts, and therefore wear, to help extend engine life. Together, the cleaning and friction-reduction technologies lead to reduced fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions.
