TESTING CONFIRMS:

VP-SEF PRODUCTS ARE GETTING THE JOB DONE!

Independent testing partners conducted field tests of our VP Small Engine Fuels pre-mixed products in a chainsaw that was run for 300 hours straight. The results were astonishing! Little to no exhaust residue, varnish buildup or excessive wear was to be found during engine teardown. VP had this test conducted (and continues to conduct more) to help dealers understand that it’s not just Ethanol that is the problem, it’s the entire chemical blend and fuel quality that helps your tools exceed performance expectations.
