ST. PAUL, Minn. — CHS Inc., an energy, grains and foods company, has announced the launch of its enhanced Cenex brand premium diesel fuels for the fleet and agriculture markets.
Cenex Roadmaster XL and Ruby Fieldmaster premium diesel fuels were developed to meet the demands of existing engines as well as new engine technologies designed for more stringent EPA emissions standards.
The premium diesel fuels deliver increased efficiency while optimizing engine performance and reducing downtime, according to Chad Pistulka, CHS product manager.
“Cenex Roadmaster XL and Ruby Fieldmaster are the next generation of the Cenex brand products,” Pistulka said. “Created with our knowledge and experience in fuel, refining, additives and engines, Cenex premium diesel fuels are formulated specifically for the demands of both existing and new engine technologies. The premium diesel fuels have not only been proven to deliver increased efficiencies, but they also extend the life of fuel injectors and protect fuel pumps from wear.”
After significant evaluation of diesel engines used in fleet and agriculture environments, experts found a number of complications related to the typical No. 2 diesel fuel, Pistulka said.
“New engines operate under higher temperatures and pressures that can literally ‘cook’ the fuel and damage engine parts,” he said. “Cenex Roadmaster XL and Ruby Fieldmaster fuels address these complications with a complete, high-quality additive package. The result is increased engine efficiencies with minimal downtime. With specialized detergents, injection stabilizers, demulsifiers and corrosion inhibitors, the premium diesel fuels deliver numerous benefits compared to the standard #2 diesel fuel.
Pistulka said those benefits include:
• Improved fuel efficiency by as much as 5 percent.
• Improved lubricity by 10 - 15 percent.
• Increased engine power by as much as 4.5 percent.
• Quicker, more reliable engine starts and improved cold-weather starts.
• Extended lifecycle of costly injectors and fuel pumps.
• Reduction of downtime and repair costs.
Cenex Roadmaster XL and Ruby Fieldmaster fuels are proven to extend the life of engines by preventing corrosion and buildup and for improved fuel efficiency, and increased power for pulling heavy loads, Pistulka said.
“As engines continue to become more complex, CHS is committed to meeting the demands of new technology,” he said. “CHS has provided safe, dependable, high-quality Cenex brand products for nearly 80 years, and we will continue that legacy with new products that ensure our customers’ success and improve their bottom line.”
