Western Outdoor NewsPublished: Sep 07, 2018

Formulated for Continuous Protection of Boat Engines and Fuel Systems During Regular Operation and Storage


Chevron Products Company, a leading provider of premium aftermarket fuel additives, engine oils, lubricants, coolants and related products, today introduced its new Techron Marine Fuel System Treatment formulated specifically for gasoline-powered boats and the harsh marine environment.

Following extended development and testing, new Techron Protection Plus Marine Fuel System Treatment is now available for wholesale orders and will be offered to the boating public August 2018. Its proprietary alcohol and emulsifier-free formula does not contribute to water uptake and provides boaters with superior protection and performance, along with enhanced fuel stabilization and the proven cleaning power of the Techron brand. Techron Marine delivers worry-free boating enjoyment all season long and maximum confidence during extended periods of non-use.

Techron Marine can be used in boats powered by all inboard, outboard and sterndrive gasoline engines, including two-stroke, four-stroke, carbureted, port or electronic fuel injected and direct-injected engines. It is ideal for use with ethanol-free gasoline or a wide range of ethanol-blended fuels from E10 to E85.

While Techron Marine stabilizes fuel up to an impressive 24 months – it is not just a storage product. This breakthrough additive formulation delivers performance benefits with every use, providing complete fuel system protection – and it won’t contribute to phase separation. Test data has shown that Techron Marine provides ‘best-in-class’ corrosion protection in both fresh and saltwater environments, making it an ideal choice for inland boaters, inshore and offshore anglers, cruising sail boaters and others who pursue their passion on the water.

This powerful new additive also delivers advanced cleaning power long known of the Techron brand, further benefitting boaters by restoring power and performance and optimizing fuel efficiency by cleaning fuel injectors, throttle bodies, carburetors and combustion chambers. It cleans intake valve deposits in port fuel injected engines, for smoother idling and enhanced throttle response. This exclusive cleaning power also helps minimize cold start problems, while preventing and removing gum and varnish in the fuel system. For maximum effectiveness, the proprietary Techron formula begins to clean up the fuel system and engine with the first application, then keeps it clean as the boat is fueled up, re-treated and operated throughout the boating season.

With only 1 oz. of this formula required to treat 10 gallons of fuel, a little protection goes a long way. Techron Marine is offered in three package sizes: Easily stored 4 oz. bottles are a convenient way for boaters to treat up to 40 gallons of fuel. Owners of larger boats and/or higher horsepower engines can treat up to 100 gallons of fuel with the 10 oz. bottle. And for the most active boating enthusiasts, Techron Marine is also offered in a value size 128 oz. bottle that treats 1,280 gallons of fuel. This new fuel additive will be offered to boaters through

West Marine and other boating products retailers nationwide.
