About Fuel Line Contamination
During the course of normal operation, the fuel system of a vehicle is exposed to separate sources of contamination: water and sediments/residues.
Water may enter the fuel system from several different sources. The number-one source of water in the fuel system is condensation. However, additional avenues through which water can be introduced include rain, washing the vehicle, refuelling, a faulty ventilation
system and bad fuel. In addition, many new fuels contain a high alcohol content, which attracts water. The threat posed by water in the fuel system is greater in humid climates.
An untreated engine is less efficient
Sediments and Residues
Contamination, including sediments and residues in the fuel system, may result from any number of causes, including oxidation of the fuel; sediments in the fuel; chemical residues of gum, artificial substances, and varnish; operating conditions of the engine; sulphur content of the fuel; residues from motor oil; combustion residues; and acid combustion substances, such as hydrogen sulphide.
Water in fuel tanks gathers at the lowest point in the fuel system, where the fuel pick-up pump is located. The water in the tank is pumped through the system, resulting in hard starts, pinging, and corrosion in the fuel system.
Sediment and residues in fuel systems are gummy and can cause injector needle valves to stick. Open needle valves cause fuel to constantly drip into combustion chambers, resulting in wasted fuel, increased exhaust emissions, and excess build-up on the intake and exhaust valves. In addition, excess fuel will pass the piston rings and enter the oiling system, mixing with oil and reducing its ability to lubricate the engine, causing increased wear and poor performance.
Overall, contamination in the fuel system affects a number of important parts, including the tank, fuel supply, inlet pipes, carburettor, injection system, intake manifolds, valves, combustion chamber and piston rings.
The results of water and build-up in the fuel system may include poor combustion, low efficiency,
performance loss, increased fuel consumption, increased exhaust, engine damage, starting problems, poor idling, poor acceleration and engine failure.

FAQ about Roil Platinum Fuel Treatment (Petrol and Diesel) products
How soon should Roil Platinum Fuel Treatment, Petrol or Diesel, first be used to clean the engine?
We recommend treatment with Fuel Treatment (Petrol and Diesel) products at the time of your vehicle’s very first oil change and at every service interval thereafter. Water condensation and contamination are constantly forming in the fuel system, regardless of vehicle make, model or year. Even small quantities of contamination will increase the environmental impact
of the vehicle’s emissions.
How do the Fuel Treatment (Petrol and Diesel) products work to bind water in the fuel?
Fuel Treatment contains carbon links created from carbon synthesis that bind or absorb water molecules. The carbon links absorb only as many water molecules as are necessary to ensure complete combustion in the fuel system.
What if the fuel tank isn’t full when I add the Fuel Treatment?
It is not necessary to have a full fuel tank when the Fuel Treatment (Petrol or Diesel) product is applied; however we recommend filling the tank at the same time for optimum results. Otherwise the tank area above the level of petrol will not be cleaned.
Is Roil Platinum Fuel Treatment alone enough to clean the fuel system?
Fuel Treatment thoroughly deals with potential fuel system issues by addressing both water and sediment contamination. However, for the most effective cleaning, it is important to implement a full-engine clean using the entire Roil Platinum system.
Is it necessary to clean the fuel system at the same time an internal engine cleaning is performed?
Yes, it is important to clean both the fuel system and the engine’s oil and lubrication systems in order to obtain optimal engine performance. If only one system is addressed, contamination and build-up from the other system will continue to affect efficiency. The Roil Platinum system of products is designed to work together to provide your vehicle with optimum cleaning and engine benefits. For example, Engine Flush cleans from the bottom of the engine system to
the piston rings, while Fuel Treatment cleans from the top of the system to the piston rings, so the system provides a comprehensive engine cleaning.
Why is Roil Platinum Fuel Treatment (Petrol) especially important when using unleaded fuels?
Lead is an effective lubricant, and as a result, unleaded fuels have a diminished capacity to
lubricate the fuel system. Therefore, the use of unleaded fuel can contribute to increased wear on injection nozzles, cylinders and piston rings; and to noise from the electric fuel pumps, steering pistons, pressure-regulating valves and float valve clips. Fuel Treatment (Petrol) contains effective lubricants that help to prevent these potential problems.
Are there any other problems associated with the newer unleaded fuels that contain higher levels of alcohol?
Yes. In unleaded fuels, lead has been replaced by alcohol. Relatively higher levels of alcohol in the fuel causes a number of problems, including starting problems, engine pinging and blockages in the fuel system. All of these issues are directly related to alcohol’s tendency to attract water and the resulting moisture that develops in the fuel system.
About Roil Platinum Engine Flush

emissions by up to 79%.
Roil Platinum Engine Flush is designed to optimise compression, improving compression by up to 12%.
In summary, Engine Flush provides improved engine efficiency with a substantial decrease in harmful exhaust emissions. Additionally, Engine Flush provides a reduction in oil and fuel consumption and has been demonstrated to reduce fuel consumption by up to 5% when used as a part of the overall Roil Platinum system.
Directions for use for Roil Platinum Engine Flush
Before each oil change, pour 375mL of Engine Flush into the engine. This quantity of Engine Flush will effectively treat engines with sumps holding up to 6 litres of oil. Engine Flush should not be used with motorcycles that have a wet clutch (lubricated with engine oil); other motorcycles should use 200mL of Engine Flush. Maximum dose of Engine Flush is at a
1:1 ratio. After application, let the engine run at idle for 15 minutes. Then change the oil and filter according to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations.
About Engine Build-up
Engine build-up includes sediment, pollution, residues, sticky tar-like sludge and oil cinders that
accumulate in the engine. There is no way to avoid engine build-up; it is a natural occurrence resulting from the normal usage of the engine under typical circumstances. However, there are several specific causes of engine build-up
Engine Operating Conditions
Conditions that may contribute to additional engine build-up include stop-and-go city traffic, numerous short-distance trips, frequent driving on a cold engine, varying heavy loads and high
part-load and idling capacity.
Advancements in modern engine design may actually contribute to the accumulation of engine build-up.
Examples include the use of new materials in engine construction, closed crank-case airing systems, hot combustion containing nitrogen, sulphuric acid combustion products, lean concepts that streamline design and manufacture and overall increased engine performance in the same-sized engine.
Heavy Oil Stress
When additional stress is placed on the engine’s oil, additional engine build-up may occur. For example, this may happen as a result of long intervals between oil changes, high oil temperatures, a small volume capacity for total engine oil, a small oil distribution
system, and/or operation at high oil temperatures.
Today’s fuel contains an increased concentration of alcohol, which attracts water and contains no
lubricating elements. In general, sulphur-free fuels have no lubrication ability.
Engine build-up affects almost all major parts of the engine, including the oil pan, crank case, crank case ventilation system, oil strainer, oil filter, oil passage, oil pump, valves, valve covers, bearings, pistons and piston rings.
The consequences of excessive engine build-up are numerous. In addition to general loss of performance, low efficiency, high fuel and oil usage, and increased emissions, these consequences may also include lack of lubrication, poor engine combustion, overheating
and engine damage.
Untreated oil will leave residues after draining Pour Roil Platinum Engine Flush into your engine oil Let the engine run idle for 15 minutes Roil Platinum Engine Flush reduces engine build-up
About Roil Platinum Metal Conditioner
Roil Platinum Metal Conditioner features a proprietary blend of synthetic chemicals that helps to
reduce friction and corrosive build-up on moving parts. Friction is the natural enemy of the engine, creating heat and causing wear that affects engine performance and negatively impacts on emissions and economy.
Metal Conditioner works by directly treating the metal surfaces in the engine to reduce friction.
This unique formula contains no suspended solids, no graphite or molybdenum and no silicone or Teflon. It works in tandem with the Engine Flush to optimise the performance and condition of the engine. By reducing friction and wear, Metal Conditioner results in a more-efficient-running and longer-life engine. Improved engine performance is particularly noteworthy in cold starting conditions.
Benefits of Roil Platinum Metal Conditioner
The Roil Platinum Metal Conditioner may extend engine life and reduce operating costs. Metal Conditioner works directly to reduce friction and decrease wear by treating the metal found in engines.
The reduced friction results in increased power and efficiency for the engine. Metal Conditioner can also lower the operating temperature of the engine. Roil Platinum Metal Conditioner protects against future damage. Application of Metal Conditioner prevents rust and corrosion in the engine. It protects against the stiffening of seals and prevents sediments from forming in the oil and lubrication systems. Metal Conditioner also neutralises damaging engine acids, which protects against corrosive wear. By reducing friction within the engine, Metal Conditioner contributes to improved engine efficiency and decreased harmful exhaust emissions.
Directions for use for Roil Platinum Metal Conditioner
Metal Conditioner should be used at every oil change. After you have changed the oil, simply pour Metal Conditioner directly into the new engine oil at a ratio of 1 part Metal Conditioner to 14 parts engine oil.
(70mL Roil for every litre of oil.)
Metal Conditioner is suitable for use in all petrol and diesel engines and mixes with mineral and synthetic oils. It is also suitable for turbocharged engines.
About Friction and Wear
Friction is the force that resists relative motion between two bodies in contact. Because friction is the result of metal parts rubbing against each other, it is a natural occurrence within an internal combustion engine, which relies on moving parts to generate power. Unfortunately, friction creates heat and causes wear to the engine, affecting its performance. Inversely, reducing friction in an internal combustion engine improves engine efficiency and reduces wear.
Wear is the removal of material from a solid surface as a result of mechanical action exerted by another solid. Over time, wear causes progressive degradation. Wear reduces the working life of an engine, causing irreparable damage. Worn parts in the engine also mean fuel is burned less efficiently, immediately impacting on emissions and fuel consumption. To minimise damage from friction and wear, lubricants are used to reduce friction in the engine. The internal combustion engine relies on lubrication from motor oil to reduce friction and operate properly. The oil pump picks up oil stored in the oil pan and distributes it to all areas of the engine. When lubrication is compromised, there is an increase in wear and a decrease in performance. Friction in an internal combustion engine without lubrication results in a rapid breakdown of metal surfaces. In fact, studies indicate that 80% of all engine wear is attributed to the friction created at a cold start-up due to a dry engine, including the initial few seconds of running an engine before oil has circulated to the moving parts.
Both Engine Flush and Metal Conditioner help reduce friction and minimise engine wear. Metal Conditioner is unique in that it treats the metal in the engine directly, helping to reduce friction even at a cold start-up when the oil is still in the pan and thereby extending the life of the engine.
Pour Roil Platinum Metal Conditioner into your engine oil.
Add one part Roil to every 14 parts oil (71mL Roil per every litre of oil).

FAQ about Roil Platinum Metal
What makes Roil Platinum Metal Conditioner
different from other additives?
Metal Conditioner is different from other additives in that it treats the metal rather than the oil.
Traditionally, lubricants are used to reduce friction in the engine; however, studies indicate that 80% of all engine wear occurs during the first few seconds of a start-up, when the engine is dry and the oil has not yet circulated to moving parts. Metal Conditioner is a true metal conditioner that chemically changes the metal surface of the engine, guarding it against excessive
wear during cold start-ups.
What are the potential benefits of Roil Platinum

Protects against corrosive build-up
Improves engine efficiency
Extends engine life
Formulated to blend with mineral or synthetic oils
Bonds to metallic surfaces to repel metal
Increases fuel economy by improved glide
Reduces maintenance costs by reducing drag
Reduces cold-start wear with easy turnover
Improves engine power
How does Roil Platinum Metal Conditioner guard against corrosive build-up in the engine?
Metal Conditioner includes special substances that buffer the product, guarding against corrosion and helping to control acidity.
How long does it take for Roil Platinum Metal Conditioner to treat the metal?
Metal Conditioner begins working immediately, but best results will be seen after 200 to 300 kilometres of driving.
If Roil Platinum Metal Conditioner treats the metal directly, why does it need to be reapplied to the engine at oil changes?
While treating the engine with Metal Conditioner substantially reduces the amount of friction in
an engine, new metal particles will continue to be exposed on the surface as the engine’s metal
parts move back and forth. Reapplication of Metal Conditioner is necessary to treat these metal ions that have formed in solution or come to the surface.
Because Metal Conditioner actually treats the metal that is at the engine’s surface, the product needs to be present when new metal ions emerge.
Does Roil Platinum Metal Conditioner completely wear off during the period between untreated oil changes?
For maximum effectiveness, it is important to maintain a full concentration of Metal Conditioner
in the oil at all times. However, Metal Conditioner is drawn into the micropores of the metal, and therefore the full effects of Metal Conditioner are not lost between oil changes.
Does Roil Platinum Metal Conditioner contain silicone or Teflon?
For new cars, when can I add Metal Conditioner?
Metal Conditioner can be added after 10 000km. The Engine Flush and Fuel Treatment are suitable for use from the first service.
