Roberts Energy Adds VitalGUARDNG to the Line of Products and Energy Solutions the Company Provides to Customers

Springfield, Mass., March 13, 2019 - Roberts Energy is pleased to announce it has added VitalGUARDNG to the wide range of products and energy solutions that it provides to commercial end-users, wholesale customers, and branded retailers. VitalGUARDNG is a fuel additive that's formulated with a precise variety of components to ensure that the engines of on-road vehicles as well as field and construction equipment stay up and running.

To learn more about VitalGUARDNG, check out the following Q&A session with Roberts Energy President Frank Roberts:

What are the advantages of using VitalGUARDNG?

"VitalGUARDNG, which has zero biodiesel content, is engineered to reduce our customers' engine downtime and improve their profitability. At a cost of five cents per gallon, the product is the best premium additive currently available in the marketplace."

How does it work?

"VitalGUARDNG contains robust detergent additives to help keep fuel systems clean and prevent build up, which in turn keeps engines performing optimally. It improves fuel efficiency, maximizes horsepower, and can help extend the life of fuel pumps and injectors."

Please explain how VitalGUARDNG can extend the life of fuel pumps and injectors?

"It's specially formulated with injection stabilizer additives to mitigate fuel oxidation issues in newer fuel injectors, which helps to prevent internal diesel injector deposits from forming. VitalGUARDNG also lessens the need for filter and injector replacements in new engine technologies, including modern, high-pressure, common rail direct injected fuel systems. This results in a reduction of downtime and maintenance."

What advantages does it have in terms of storability and combustibility?

"VitalGUARDNG contains highly effective cetane improver additives to keep engines running smoothly. Cetane is a measure of diesel engine storability - the higher the cetane number, the quicker the fuel will combust. The cetane improver in VitalGUARDNG helps engines to start quicker in low temperatures, reduces rough running, and decreases engine noise. It also includes storage stabilizing additives to help extend the storage life of diesel fuel, as well as reduce the buildup of gum and varnish. The storage stabilizers enable fuel to tolerate temperature extremes and can extend diesel fuel storage life by up to six months."

Is VitalGUARDNG effective against corrosion?

"Yes, it contains corrosion protection additives that can prevent rust on wetted metal parts of the fuel storage tank, transfer pump and injection systems. As a result, VitalGUARDNG helps to reduce maintenance and replacement costs for damaged injector pumps, improve the life of diesel fuel by slowing the degradation caused by oxygen exposure, and it also prevents leaks, blockages, and breaks in metal parts caused by corrosion."

What are some of the other advantages of using VitalGUARDNG?

"It contains lubricity improving additives to protect against friction and wear from #2 diesel on a fuel pump, and it protects moving parts from excessive wear. Additionally, the demulsifying additives in VitalGUARDNG mitigate water in tanks by forcing it to the bottom, where it can be more easily drained and removed. This reduces damaging moisture from continuing through the fuel system and combustion chamber, and helps prevent the formation of biological contaminants in storage tanks."
