PatFluid® is a Fuel Borne Catalyst (FBC), or Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Additive, designed as a universal aftermarket replacement for Original Equipment (OE) additives used on diesel passenger cars fitted with DPFs.
Since 2000 many European passenger car manufacturers have used Diesel Particulate Filters on their diesel vehicles and this has since become mandatory by law. Many manufacturers opted to use Fuel Borne Catalyst systems to aid the operation of these filters. A Fuel Borne Catalyst is a fuel additive that contains metallic catalysts to aid DPF regeneration and reduce emissions. The Fuel Borne Catalyst is contained in a small tank or bag on the vehicle and is automatically dosed into the main fuel tank, when the FBC runs out it needs to be replenished to ensure the Diesel Particulate Filter still operates correctly.
PatFluid® lowers the combustion temperature of soot trapped in the filter so that it can be burnt off at temperatures seen during normal driving conditions; this allows for trouble-free vehicle operation - with rapid and complete DPF regenerations.
PatFluid®'s cost effective & highly reliable formulation is suitable for all diesel passenger cars with on-board Fuel Borne Catalyst systems, including vehicles by Peugeot, Citroen, Ford, Volvo, Fiat, Mazda, Volkswagen, Skoda and Mini.
The FBC additive is stored in a separate tank or bag on the vehicle and typically requires refilling one to three times during the vehicle's life. Both on-board tanks and bags can be easily refilled with CDTi's PatFluid®Transfer Kit.
