Heavy vehicle engineering conference ComVec 2016 has announced senior chemist for global fuels technology, Garry Whitfield at BP as a speaker.

Whitfield will host a session on the latest fuel technology bound for Australia, named Ultimate Diesel, designed for modern day engines.

According to Whitfield, the new formulas will bring significant benefits, including the reduction of deposits through the injection system.

“These deposits in injectors can cause poor combustion and power loss, which means more fuel is used with dirty injectors than for the same operation on clean injectors,” Whitfield said.

“Ultimate Diesel cleans the injector, which in turn restores power, so that for the same operation less fuel is used and therefore less CO2 is emitted.”

He adds keeping the fuel system and fuel injectors clean reduces the potential for injector failure, which also reduces the risk of unplanned maintenance.

Whitfield joins an already impressive speaker line-up for ComVec, which includes keynote presenter and CEO NHVR Sal Petroccitto, president of French based Adegero S.A.S Strasbourg Mack Murray, and head of design and development at HELLA Martin Reinbach.

ComVec 2016 takes place at Melbourne Park Function Centre from 19-20 July.
