With a new business year comes new product launches for the Small Engine Fuel line. VP put in 4 years of R&D to identify problems with lubricant packages currently offered to the outdoor power equipment industry. This consisted of more than 300 full engine tests using a 25-hour detergency & wear test format. 

What VP found was that many modern oil products targeted at outdoor power caused ring sticking and carbon build-up. In addition, these products proved to be tough to mix in their correct ratios and even when mixed properly, they lacked the viscosity and film strength to offer adequate protection to vital components.

The end result was the best in class new VP-SEF products available to VP Dealers and Distributors for the new year:
