According to he RAC, UK Fuel prices are now at an 8 year high. This is due to a number of reasons including the the invasion of Ukraine and international oil prices in general, which look to continue throughout 2021/22.
There seems to have been confusion in some advertising in the British press recently, regarding the original history of the fuel catalyst. The true history of it's development by British RAF engineer Henry Broquet in 1940 and it's benefits have already been fully independently documented, some of which by the pilots themselves. So for the historical facts please see 'History' on this website.
From a crucial wartime invention, the Broquet fuel catalyst has now evolved into a global success story by meeting today's demands to cut fuel costs and reduce emissions. It is very simple, easy to install device that when fitted into the fuel tank or fuel line of a diesel, petrol or oil fuelled engine, will improve fuel combustion efficiency.
For motorcycles and cars, one treatment can last for 250,000 miles or 400,000 kms., and therefore Broquet will in many cases prove to be ‘fit and forget’. The benefits are the result of improved combustion efficiency together with the gradual removal of carbon deposits, waxes and gums that normally form in all engines.

LATEST CUSTOMER FEEDBACK : Over a period of 5 years
and 11,000 miles the Yamaha R1 has been improved (due to
the aid of a Broquet) from a poor running, high mileage
bike to a fresh running sweet bike. In my humble opinion
it feels like the Broquet has removed any built-up carbon
and this allowed the valves to produce a better seal, and
the result is a much nicer running engine, also a 10%
reduction in fuel consumption. The bike now has increased
mileage and has been thrashed at tracks, I suppose the engine should be on it's last legs but it still performs in a very impressive way and more importantly with a very good mpg - Phil (The Doc) Hacker, FJ Owners Club)
E10 biofuel fuel was introduced to the UK in September 2021 alongside E5, and has caused a huge number of enquiries to us. In short, Broquet will also provide all it's normal benefits (see above) to vehicles using this fuel.
However questions are being raised regarding this fuels possible long-term damage to fuel lines and components on older vehicles, due to it's reported corrosive effect. Drivers of pre-2011 are presently being advised not to use E10, but to remain on E5.
The Press Release (motorcycle) shown (left) is the latest in a long list of positive feedback from customers using Broquet in a wide variety of petrol, diesel and oil applications.
MSC and RHT conducted their own trials, using a range of different vehicles and using an independent company to monitor exhaust emissions.
The cost saving achieved by reducing fuel consumption is very important to the company, but the environmental will also be a huge winner due to reduced exhaust emissions.

GOVERNMENT ORDERS BROQUET : Following many years of success in reducing fuel consumption for both private and business customers in the French Overseas Territory of New Caledonia, Broquet Distributor for the Pacific Region, Vincent Lorenzini has now received their first order to equip the Government's fleet of vehicles.
10,000 CLUB USERS : Following the CSMA's successful independent testing of the Broquet product which validated it's claims, 10,000 + members of the UK's Civil Service Motoring Association went on to puchase Broquet as recently testified to by David Arnold, previous Editor of their magazine, Motoring & Leisure.
MINE COMPANY SUCCESS : Positive results on fuel saving and exhaust emissions have been measured across eleven different engines owned by RHT Mines.
Recently, tin producer and smelter Malaysia Smelting
Corporation (MSC) has carried out field trials using the fuel catalysts, supplied by Broquet International, UK, on 11 engines at its Rahman Hydraulic Tin Mine (RHT Mine), in
Malaysia. The specially formulated pellets were either added into a fuel tank or placed inside a fuel line cartridge. As they are normally a once-only treatment, they can last for the lifetime of most engines.
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% - 8% and in petrol 5% – 8%. Emissions of CO, NOx and SO2 were reduced by between 12% - 89%. For actual figures see test data on pdf attachment link below.
9% SAVINGS FOR FISHING FLEET
After over 18 months of successful testing on vessels
belonging to a major fishing company in Lima, Peru,
Broquet received an order to supply fuel saving devices for
installation on the main and auxiliary engines of over 60
trawlers with engines ranging in size from 450 HP to
2,500HP. Subsequent orders have increased this figure
to 93. Apart from having one of the largest fishing fleets in
South America, the customer is also a major fish oil and
fishmeal producing company with 16 Processing Plants.
As a result of the success in reducing fuel consumption on the vessels main engines, Broquet has now also supplied units to over 60 generators and pumps.
Fuel savings of up to 9% have also been accompanied by reductions in stack emissions and stack temperatures. Therefore fitting Broquet has not only brought significant savings on fuel costs, but also important reductions in maintenance costs, with the virtual elimination of carbon deposits within the engine. Environmental objectives are also being met with a 2 tonne reduction in CO2 for every tonne of fuel saved.
These are the latest in a series of recent trials coordinated by ITRI around the world. They confirm
data that ITRI has collated from more than 70 other tests carried out over several decades.
