What AXI International
(formerly ALGAE-X) Users Have to Say

Roger S. Young - 3/6/03

First I want to tell you that the ALGAE-X fuel management system really does work as you said it would. I, at first, thought it wasn't working because I still had the smoking problem at high RPM's but as you stated, after three tanks of diesel fuel the black smoke cleared and the engines are running excellent at any RPM.

I installed the model 200 on all of our tenders and used the fuel conditioner. Within a week the problem went away. I have not changed fuel filters for the rest of the season. The aggravation factor and complaints went away.

We are currently purchasing the Carver 570 Voyager, with Cummins QSM-11, 660hp engines and you can rest assured that the ALGAE-X's will be on both mains and genset at delivery. People that say this is marketing hype have never used them nor witnessed the results.

Based on my experience, I would recommend the system to anyone with diesels, especially those who, like myself, must put their boat in storage for long periods of time.

Devall Diesel - 4/01/02

Every month we were traveling to one of our boats to change out the injector nozzles. After we installed the ALGAE-X system on these boats, we prolonged the injector nozzles life to every 3-4 months before changing. Also, smoking of the engines cut back.

Deep Sea Trolling Adventures - 2/1/02

Before installing ALGAE-X my boat would not come up on plane and I was laying a horrible cloud of thick, smelly, black smoke. I have now had the unit in service for about a month, and it seems the boat runs better each time I take it out. My fuel economy has improved, the smoke problem has all but disappeared, the engines are quieter and smoother, and my top speed has increased over 20% to over 40 mph.

I have used ALGAE-X units on both of my 50 hp Yanmar engines with stunning results. Only out of habit do I replace my Racor fuel filters about every 12 months, but they are generally still reasonably clean in appearance and probably do not need replacement.

With the ALGAE-X devices in place and routine use of the AFC-705 Fuel Catalyst, dirty fuel is one less problem I have to be concerned with.

I was amazed by the almost instant improvement we experienced with the installation of your ALGAE-X units. I just got back from a Bahamas trip and the transom soot was 50% of what it used to be even with clean fuel!!! Bottom line is your product works great!

Prior to installing I was changing my filters every 35 to 50 hours, my fuel restriction gauge would reach 7" of vacuum and my filters would get black as charcoal. After installing ALGAE-X, my filters get between 125 and 150 hours, my fuel restriction has not reached above 5" of vacuum and my filters after 150 hours are reddish brown.

Last year I installed an ALGAE-X 500 unit and ALGAE-X AFC-705 Fuel Catalyst to my 41" Hatteras Sport Fisherman. Because I am burning cleaner fuel I have eliminated the dirty transom problem caused by smoking diesel fuel and my fuel consumption has dropped from 22 to about 20 gallons per hour.

Normally I would get an inch of crud out of each filter after about 50 hours, but after installing ALGAE-X, NOTHING. I could never get 100 hours out of a 30 micron Racor 500 cartridge before, and now I'm up to 150 and counting. Plus, the smoke is greatly reduced, the exhaust smells cleaner, and - here's the best of all - fuel economy is up over 10%.

Subsequent to ALGAE-X units, filter change intervals have increased from 100 to 750 hours. Combined with the AFC-705 catalyst, we have noted a reduction of smoke of approx. 80%, and a fuel consumption reduction of 20%. There are also no signs of carbon deposits on injectors or turbos . . . before ALGAE-X these components required service every 4-6 months . . . the increase in filter life and fuel economy alone is saving us over $50,000 per year !!

Since ALGAE-X, on my first fill up I burned 15 gal/hr and the second fill up was 14.4 gal/hr. My old numbers being about 18-20 gal/hr. That is a 16.7% and 20% increase in fuel efficiency respectively.

All of Safe/SeaĆ­s diesel rescue vessels have your excellent units installed either as original equipment or retrofitted. We have had no fuel contamination problems since we started using ALGAE-X. We conduct over 1000 quick response rescues each year and reliable service from our equipment is critical. Your LG-X 400 is a key component to helping us meet this reliability goal.

My boat was having a major smoke problem, leaving terrible residue on my transom. After trying several expensive alternatives, I installed ALGAE-X. Take it from a person who almost traded his boat, it really works.

Conclusion: The ALGAE-X product does what ALGAE-X International says it can do, and then some. The fuel efficiencies and filter savings realized by these Cutters are impressive and significantly reduce operating costs. I could confidently say the ALGAE-X product is a NECESSARY component of any diesel, or lighter distillate fuel system.

Since ALGAE-X units have been installed as standard equipment on new vessel construction and retrofitted on many of our customers' boats, we have never had a report of engine failure on any of these vessels. We prefer to be on the "lead end" of a towline, instead of the rear end!

Has units on tugboats, patrol boat, crane barges and other equipment. Prior to installing ALGAE-X equipment, fuel filters were a constant problem and injectors and turbo chargers were repaired and replaced due to poor fuel quality. ALGAE-X has significantly reduced downtime, maintenance & repairs, filter consumption & labor hours and all systems are running much cleaner.

Had been changing fuel filters at 50-100 hours before installing ALGAE-X. Almost immediately after ALGAE-X units were installed, Mark saw a very noticeable difference in engine performance and filter consumption. Now filters are changed at normal intervals and transoms no longer turn black due to exhaust gasses.

We were called upon to fix a fuel problem on a 6-year-old boat, and we found that one engine and an ALGAE-X unit installed in the fuel line. The other engine was the one having the fuel problems and did not have an ALGAE-X so we installed a unit. This solved the filtration problem for our customer. We now install ALGAE-X on all new boats we build.
