A Major Moves - Chevron Announces Price Increase
Chevron announced it will increase prices on all lubricating oils, gear lubes, and greases by 3 to 6% effective September 1, 2011. According to Chevron, the increase is being driven by the continuing rise in base oil and additive costs.

ValvTect Treated Fuels Hit Over 1 Billion Gallons

ValvTect Petroleum, the USA's largest manufacturer and supplier of fuel additives to gasoline and diesel distributors, the nation's largest fleets, railroads, engine manufacturers and several refineries, announced today that over one billion gallons of gasoline and diesel fuel were treated with its ValvTect and Diesel Guard fuel additives last year.


"To put this in perspective, one billion gallons of fuel is more than enough fuel to power every car, truck, power boat and piece of farm and construction equipment in the United States for more than two days," said Jerry Nessenson, President of ValvTect. "We are very proud to reach this milestone. It is especially gratifying since, due to the economy and high fuel prices, demand for gasoline and diesel is still off as much as 20% in some markets, including marine and over the road diesel fuel," he added.


While most people in the marine industry know the ValvTect name through ValvTect Marine Fuels that are sold at many of the nation's marinas and ValvTect aftermarket products, ValvTect Diesel Guard, AgriGuard and ThermoGuard brands enjoy major shares of the fleet, truck stop, farm fuel and heating oil markets. The company also supplies several refineries and produces private label additives for some of the world's largest engine manufacturers.
