Patent for Sale:Diesel Fuel Additive
A fully developed diesel fuel additive formulation containing a polyetheramine and other ingredients with field tested results showing a 4 to 10% improvement in fuel efficiency together with the IP which specifically covers this formulation.
The formulation packaging is already developed, so there are no issues with long term package compatibility and shipping (leakers!). The buyer may wish to add a dye and this is one of the claims in the patent. The owner is currently manufacturing this product and actively selling it, but the product deserves wider recognition and use, since our customers find that the fuel savings cover the additive cost by a factor of two or more.
Along with this package comes the manufacturing process and the critical vendor and high volume supply chain information that makes this package ready for a marketing campaign.
The product is unusually lucrative and would prove attractive to major investment. Many patents are impossible to commercialize, but this package offers a commercially valuable product, manufacturing know-how and the legal means to protect the market you might create.
Primary Application of the Technology
2. Specialty Chemical company wishing to enter the fuel additive market.
Target markets: Trucking industry, farm equipment, heavy earthmoving equipment, retail diesel truck owners.
The Problem Solved by the Technology
How the Technology Solves the Problem
Field testing on a 530 hp Cummins over the road truck confirmed the results.
The carrier solvent is unique in that it provides protection from super-cooled water freezing out on filters in cold weather.
The formulation was developed from aviation formulations, which the seller owns, which have been proven safe and effective in critical aviation environments.

Class 44: Fuel And Related Compositions
A liquid or solid composition designed primarily to react chemically, usually with oxygen in air, to produce heat in controllable amounts, included are most compositions designed to produce both heat and a deoxygenating effect in metallurgical and similar processes, designated to be dispersed in air for explosive combustion in an engine and/or designed to produce illumination light along with heat upon combustion. A process for making such composition by adding substances, by removing components (using chemical or physico-chemical procedures) by shaping or reshaping or arranging fuel elements or object in a particular relation to each other, except where provided for in another class. An additive which imparts desire aesthetic, handling or burning properties to a fuel, or a composition useful only for scratching a match or removing soot from a combustion-related apparatus. Certain combinations of fuel with an igniting composition, an incombustible carrier for the fuel, a wrapper of bundling material or an additive. A process for treating coal not elsewhere classifiable.
