The Clean Fire diesel fuel additive was introduced to the public by Travis Eggerichs Sr. (Head of Research & Development) at Global Energy Research & Development Inc. Clean Fire's introduction to the market in 2006 was only possible by 30 plus years of petroleum fuel research, continuous changes in fuel production standards and a personal life or death experience. When diesel fuel quality falls below the operational needs of the diesel equipment in use, failure, in a extreme weather environment can be life threatening. In the winter of 1976, the motivation for Clean Fire was first instilled when a truck driver traveling on Highway 2 through North Dakota was caught in below -0° weather. The fuel the driver was using did not have the necessary composition of ingredient needed to combat the gelling of diesel fuel. This lack of cold weather defense left him stranded on the side of the road with a fuel starved engine that quickly cooled in the below 0° blizzard. The driver stated "If it wasn't for the man picking up his wife from her shift at the hospital I wouldn't be here today." pointing to his frostbite scaring. It is experiences like these that inspire our company to make the best product possible in all areas of operation!
