Improve Mileage by Installing a New Fuel Catalyst
A fuel catalytic is bound to improve your fuel economy as it boosts your engine's performance. This component refines the fuel in the fuel tank before it reaches the motor, helping the engine run better and cleaner. By passing the fuel through a series of elements, the fuels molecular structure goes through a chemical reaction that yields cleaner and more stable fuel. This item is a treat to have and you're probably super excited to install it into your ride. So follow the simple steps listed below and you'll have your fuel catalysts ready in no time.
Difficulty Level: Moderate
What you'll need:
- Protective glasses and gloves
- Ratchet and socket set
- Fuel Catalyst
Before getting started:
- Make sure your vehicle is parked on an even surface.
- Put on safety gloves and glasses for ample protection.
Step 1: First, prop the hood open and disconnect the battery.
Step 2: Then remove the fuel cap from the vehicle to equalize the system.
Step 3: Take your new fuel catalyst and attach its elbows to it. Make sure the connections are securely tightened.
Step 4: Connect the input and output hoses.
Step 5: Next decide where to mount the fuel catalyst. One spot you can opt for is the vehicle's cold air intake heat shield.
Step 6: Bolt the fuel catalyst to the cold air intake heat shield.
Step 7: Then locate the CCD connector on the right fuel rail and remove the safety clip.
Step 8: Disconnect the fuel line from the fuel rail.
Note: Some pressurized fuel from inside the system may be released when disconnecting he fuel line, so be prepared with something to keep the fuel from dripping on the motor.
Step 9: Connect the input end of the fuel catalyst's hose to the output from the fuel rail. Doing so will allow all fuel to be passed through the fuel catalyst before entering the fuel tank.
Step 10: Return any lines you disconnected, reinstall the fuel cap, and re-connect the battery.
Note: Make sure your lines are arranged in a way that prevents chafing or exposure to heat and sharp edges.
Step 11: Close your hood and you're all set.
