Queen Fuel Components, LLC was founded by Robert Queen in Shelby, NC. Through a story too long to tell here, Robert started researching the diesel fuel and additive industries in late 2008. He discovered, as most in the diesel industry already know, that Federal requirements for Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD), emerging diesel engine technology, and the increased use of biodiesel have accelerated the use of additives in diesel fuel. His research also led to an understanding that there was no simple, economical way to automatically dispense fuel additive into the fuel for individual pieces of equipment. There were systems available that required the operator to program fuel usage into the system and there were methods to treat bulk fuel at a terminal facility but nothing for operators fueling on the road or fueling off-road at construction or mining sites.

Robert called on his years of design and manufacturing experience in the aerospace industry to solve the problem. (His first work assignment after graduating from NC State University was designing repairs and modifications to military aircraft structures and fuel systems for the United States Navy.) The EZ ADD® systems available today are the result of that experience and many hours of design and bench testing and several prototypes.

Robert is excited about this new venture and the opportunity to make operations easier and more cost efficient for the thousands of diesel equipment operators across North America and around the world. Queen Fuel Components, LLC will continue to be here to develop new systems to further assist diesel operators as diesel fuel and engine technologies continue to emerge.
