    K100 Now at NAPA Auto Parts Stores

     Kinetic Fuel Technology Inc. (KFTI) announced that both the gas and diesel versions of K100 Fuel Treatment now will be available at NAPA Auto Parts stores nationwide. K100 is a fuel additive that prevents freezing of condensation and phase separation of fuel that sits unused for an extended period of time. The organic formulation of K100, developed almost 50 years ago, chemically alters the molecular makeup of the water molecule, changing it into a combustible chemical that burns out the system once the engine is running. (You can find K100-MG in the Hot Products section of the October 2016 issue of American Snowmobiler.)

    NAPA has offered K100 on a regional basis for the past several years, and last fall the decision was made to offer the product across the country. While K100 has previously been sold nationally through various category specific distributors, there are pockets of communities throughout the U.S. where there is limited distribution. NAPA Auto Parts has the ability to access all the K100 fuel treatment consumer sizes, and to special order the commodity sizes for larger fleets, farmers, etc., through their Balkamp Distribution Centers, so the need for the manufacturer to ship to unrepresented areas of the U.S. has been virtually eliminated.

    According to Jeff Lundh, President of KFTI, “being approved and aligned with such a reputable company as NAPA is invaluable to our continued success.”

    The previous owners of KFTI made a conscientious decision NOT to sell on a national level, keeping the product exclusively available in the Northeast. Then new owners decided to ramp up production and expand distribution nationally and internationally. Canadian Tire was on board immediately, offering national distribution of K100 through a single distributor. Accomplishing this same feat in the U.S. proved to be more challenging. KFTI is currently looking to expand its distribution network internationally. For a store locator, visit www.k-100.com.
