Oil and lubricant company Chevron has released a new fuel additive designed for motorcycles and other powersports and small engines. The new Techron Protection Plus Powersports & Small Engine Fuel System Treatment is available now at AutoZone.com, Walmart.com and Amazon.com, with additional retailers to be announced soon.

The additive is safe for use in all gasoline-powered engines, including carbureted, two-stroke, four-stroke, port or electronic fuel inject and even direct injected engines. The formula is also designed for ethanol-blended fuels.

According to Chevron, the Techron Powersports additive helps clean fuel injectors, combustion chambers, throttle bodies and carburetors, restoring power and performance while improving fuel efficiency. The additive removes and prevents intake valve deposits, which can inhibit the flow of gasoline. The results, according to Chevron, are improved throttle response and smoother idling. Techron also helps minimize cold-start issues and deposit-related knock and ping by removing carbon deposits from the combustion chamber.

Techron Powersports is also specially formulated to protect against some of the harmful effects of gasoline containing ethanol which can be corrosive to some materials, particularly to some hoses, gaskets and even fuel tanks on older machines.

Chevron recommends using 1 oz. of Techron Powersports for four gallons of fuel. The additive begins to work with the first application and continues to work as the tank is fueled up, re-treated and operated. Techron Powersports can also help stabilize fuel for when you’re storing your motorcycle for an extended period of time.

“Techron is committed to developing superior fuel additives for all internal-combustion engines. Our industry research revealed a distinct need for a more powerful solution in the powersports and small engine market,” said Joe DeFina, Chevron’s North America Fuel Additives Business Manager. “As a result, we engineered the most comprehensive, high-performance fuel additive and tested it for the harshest environments. Whether customers are seeking everyday reliability, working power or maximum performance at wide-open throttle, our Powersports & Small Engine Fuel System Treatment combines ultimate protection with the cleaning power of the Techron brand.”
