Two options available
Suitable for FJ and FJR range
BROQUET FUEL STABILSER
Fuel Breakdown and Motorcycle Storage.
In your Dads day the fuel was leaded, this meant that the fuel was stable over a long period but with the advent of modern ‘Green’ unleaded fuels the break down starts after only 6 weeks.
The solution is to put a fuel stabiliser in before storage. The Club sells Forte Moto Power 2 which, aside from its cleaning properties, also will stabilise your fuel.
The Broquet comes in a twin pellet format which simply pops into the tank. This remarkable product changes the fuel structure to that similar to ‘Leaded’ and makes the fuel stable. The advantage with this product is it is permanently in your tank so no worrying about when you need to fill with the liquid stabilisers. Also over a long period it will help clean your combustion chambers and decrease fuel consumption plus it’s a ‘one’ purchase product, the others you have to keep buying.
One final point you must keep you tank FULL. This stops condensation building up within the tank which then drops to the bottom of the tank and causes corrosion.
BROQUET FUEL CATALYST (Money Back Guarantee)
This impressive product claims a savings on 7% to 12% on fuel (see Docs write up and article on this page).
Other benefits are;
More Power; Smoother running; Acts as a fuel stabilser; Elimates engine 'coking'; Reduced exhaust emissions; Coverts Unlead fuel so it can be used in 'leaded' engines. One treatment lasts for 250,000 miles
The Money Back Guarantee
I'm so impressed with this product that if you can't feel an improvement in the running and pick up of your engine within 2 weeks I will except its return and a full refund given (ex-postage).
The improvement of fuel consumption will take up to 1000 miles as it takes effect in cleaning out your engine.
Fitment to FJR1300
The units supplied are difficult to fit to the FJR1300 due to the narrowness of the filler aperture. You will need to crush the steel cage with pliers until the pellet unit will fit through the fuel filler aperture.
Easiest way to do this is to make sure the 6 pellets are lead flat side down and then fold cage over pellets as close as possible. Crush tightly with pliers.The pellet pack should then be small enough to fit. If not keep moulding with pliers until it fits.
The unit will fit as I have Broquet fitted to my FJR1300 and have fitted them to members bikes at the workshop.
Units cannot get sucked into the fuel pump or into the fuel lines.
Please note; Removal will require draining of tank and removal of the fuel pump,as fuel aperture is too small to sucessfully retrieve broquet unit.

Tin alloy fuel catalysts save fuel and cut pollution
Global tin industry organisation ITRI has called for more research into the use of tin alloy pellets added to fuel following successful field trials in Malaysia. Positive results on fuel saving and exhaust emissions reduction have been identified using eleven different engines.
Stringent targets are in place worldwide to cut pollution from engines and improve fuel economy as governments urgently try to reduce harmful emissions as well as our dependence on fossil fuels. At the same time a surprisingly simple technology based on adding tin alloys into fuel tanks or fuel lines has for many years claimed to reduce fuel consumption and exhaust emissions in engines. However, this has been met with widespread scepticism.
Recently, tin producer and smelter Malaysia Smelting Corporation (MSC) has carried out field trials using the tin fuel catalysts, supplied by Broquet International, UK, on several engines and vehicles at its Rahman Hydraulic Tin Mine (RHT Mine), in Malaysia. The specially formulated tin alloy pellets are either added into a fuel tank or placed inside a fuel line cartridge. They are not significantly used up and can last for the lifetime of the engine.
Fuel consumption was measured over a 6 month baseline and then over 6 months with the catalysts fitted. Exhaust emissions were measured by Acumen Scientific Sdn Bhd, of Penang, Malaysia. The tests included pick-up trucks, a cargo truck, tipper truck, electrical generator, large static diesel engine, a Jeep and a Volvo Sedan car. Results in all eleven vehicles were positive. Fuel savings in diesel engines were 4.0 - 7.0% and in petrol 6.0 - 7.0%. Emissions of CO, NOx and S02 were all reduced by 30 - 60%.
"These latest results confirm that it is time for tin fuel catalyst technology to be taken more seriously by engine manufacturers, governments and the scientific community," commented Dr Jeremy Pearce, ITRl’s Technology Team Leader. 'Tin alloys clearly have beneficial effects when they are contacted with fuels and we need to seize this opportunity to make the use of fossil fuels in engines cleaner and less polluting for us all."
In fact ITRI believes it is close to understanding how tin fuel catalysts work. As world experts in the science of tin they are proposing two complementary theories, both based on the known properties of the metal. Firstly, tin may react with trace metals present in fuel that cause engine gums and deposits, resulting in cleaner engines. Secondly, tin is already used commercially as a reforming catalyst, for example to convert organic matter into biodiesel, and similar reactions with fuel molecules are theoretically possible. In fact work, published by the Universityof Connecticutin the US, last year confirmed molecular changes in both petrol and diesel and measured enhanced useful energy yield. Their Department of Energy project identified tin alloys as 'next generation fuel reforming catalysts for efficient energy usage'.
These are the latest in a series of recent trials coordinated by ITRI, with other work in Peruand in China. They confirm positive data ITRI has collated from more than 70 other tests on the technology carried out by suppliers over several decades
