As part of the Equipment and Engine Training Council (EETC) Annual Conference, B3C Fuel Solutions, a manufacturer of environmentally friendly products and solutions for ethanol and bio-fuel related problems, conducted training seminars to provide instructors with the latest information on new products, technical updates and hands-on training.
In addition to training, B3C donated its gasoline test kit to all certified EETC training programs. The fuel diagnostic kit identifies fuel-related problems.
“Often, when an engine is running rough, or will not start, the problems can be traced back to issues caused by ethanol-blended fuels.”
Founded in 1997, the EETC is a non-profit trade association with a goal to develop and create professional power equipment technicians for today’s sophisticated power equipment products. The association has developed the EETC Technician Certification program to measure the skill level of repair technicians working in the industry today and has developed the EETC School Accreditation program to recognize schools that have an outstanding outdoor equipment training course to train future technicians.
“Often, when an engine is running rough, or will not start, the problems can be traced back to issues caused by ethanol-blended fuels,” says Brian O’Neil, chief business development officer for B3C Fuel Solutions. “The ethanol in gasoline contains high amounts of oxygen, and when left standing for more than 60 days, begins to decay, resulting in hard starting and varnish deposits in the fuel system and engine.”
