Techron small engine fuel treatment

Chevron Products Company announced the retail rollout of its new Techron Protection Plus Powersports and Small Engine Fuel System Treatment.

Following extensive development and testing, this scientifically formulated small-engine additive delivers superior performance and protection combined with the advanced cleaning power of Techron. Engineered for use in everything from gasoline-powered motorcycles, ATVs and UTVs, to a wide range of portable outdoor power equipment in lawn care, construction, agriculture, turf management, forestry and countless other industries, Techron Powersports and Small Engine Fuel System Treatment is now available at AutoZone stores nationwide and on The product is also currently available at and, with additional retailers to be announced over the coming months.

The product restores power and performance while optimizing fuel efficiency as it cleans fuel injectors, combustion chambers, throttle bodies and carburetors. The additive’s performance detergents minimize cold-start problems and deposit-related knock and ping by removing carbon deposits in the combustion chamber; dissolves and prevents intake-valve deposits for smoother idling and enhanced throttle response; and cleans and controls gum and varnish build-up in the fuel system. For maximum effectiveness, the product begins to clean up the fuel system and engine with the first application and then keeps it clean as the equipment or vehicle is fueled up, re-treated and operated.

Developed for superior performance in the most severe operating environments, the additive’s alcohol- and emulsifier-free formula does not contribute to water uptake. Recommended for use in all gasoline engines, including carbureted, two- and four-stroke, port or electronic fuel injected, the product is ideal for ethanol-free gasoline and equipped to fight off the many harmful effects of ethanol-blended fuels, from E10 to E85.
