GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. Engines Division is launching two Ethanol-free, fuel products specifically optimized for OPE applications. The introduction of these two additions to Kawasaki’s Signature Series family of products includes KTECH Blend Pre-Mixed 2-Cycle Fuel + Oil and KTECH Ethanol-Free 4-Cycle Fuel.
The KTECH Pre-Mixed 2-Cycle Fuel + Oil product is engineered to avoid the issues attached to pump fuel and is formulated for the transportation industry. It is available in quart, one- and five- gallon cans, as well as 54-gallon drums.
This new entry in the KTECH product line provides easy starts, lower maintenance and takes all the guesswork out of the oil and fuel mix for two-cycle equipment.
Kawasaki’s KTECH development and engineering teams have focused on delivering a stable mixture that will last two years in a tank and five years in a sealed container. Formulated specifically for small engines, it employs 93 Octane ethanol and the highest quality 100% synthetic blend FD Certified oil. The premix offers better starting and more efficient operating characteristics.
By addressing industry issues such as corrosion and poor detergency, this fuel-oil pre-mix offers the solution for easy start and run applications at sea level or higher altitude, in cold, dry, humid, or hot weather, and after sitting for up to a several years. It will work with equal efficacy in lower RPM blowers and in higher RPM chainsaws.
The new unleaded KTECH Ethanol-Free 4-Cycle Fuel is formulated for long life durability of 4- cycle small engines, and 2-cycle when mixed with oil to engine manufacturer specifications. Like the 2-cycle pre-mix product, the 4-cycle fuel earned 93 Minimum Octane Rating via the (R+M)/2 Method.
The company points out that this new KTECH 4-Cycle Fuel passes warranty requirements for all manufacturers of 4-cycle and 2-cycle (when mixed with 2-cycle oil to manufacturer specifications) engines.
