Although there are thousands of ships running on heavy fuel oil without the aid of chemical fuel oil treatment, the author firmly believes that the performance of these vessels could be optimized by the use of such treatment--and explains why. He emphasizes that it is important to choose the right treatment for the job and that it is therefore necessary to identify what type of problem, if any, is present for a given residual fuel. Those problems fall broadly into three categories: precombustion problems, combustion problems, and postcombustion problems. Each is discussed in turn.
