ValvTect and Century Team Up to Prevent Ethanol Problems

ValvTect Petroleum is proud to announce that Century Boats will include a sample of ValvTect Ethanol Gasoline Treatment with each new boat to help its new boat owners avoid problems that can be caused by ethanol blended gasoline.

“Although we build our boats to the industry’s most stringent specifications, ethanol gasoline can destabilize very quickly and cause corrosion and some problems to the fuel delivery systems and engine components that can be prevented by a fuel additive such as ValvTect Ethanol Gasoline Treatment,” stated Bryan Lucius, president of Century Boats. “By providing samples of ValvTect Ethanol Gasoline Treatment with each boat, we are helping our customers prevent ethanol related problems and better enjoy their boating experience.”

“We are proud to have Century Boats on board with us to help educate boaters about the problems and the solution for ethanol gasoline problems.” said Jerry Nessenson, president of ValvTect Petroleum Products.
