Interesting Find!

Recommended Posts

When I went to Council, ID to pick up part for a fire truck my buddy that I work with requested a 5 gallon pail of part solvent. When the part counter man brought out the pail it was clearly marked "Stoddard Solvent" on the side of the pail in bold black lettering. Now knowing all that I know in fuel additives I know there is a few fuel additves with this in it... But remember that this chemical has a few different names...

Here is the Wikipedia pages on it...

Mineral Spirits

Stoddard Solvent

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stoddard_solvent

So be aware there is some fuel additives like MMO that include this chemical (solvent) that is nothing more that part washer solvent! :wow

Marvel Mystery Oil

This explains exactly why MMO ranked so poorly in the HFRR testing done by DieselPlace.com

It seems that most products have some sort of solvent in them... But how much??? As seen with MMO it must be quite high amount of mineral spirits/stoddard solvent because of the extremely high HFRR score it got...
