The Fuel Additive Task Group (FATG), a task group of the Petroleum Additives Panel, works to address fuel additive performance issues, such as test protocol development, product specification, and third-party standard setting. The FATG membership includes U.S. gasoline and diesel additive manufacturers.

Fuel additives impart additional chemical properties to gasoline and diesel fuels, which in turn leads to improved function and performance. Common automotive performance enhancing products include: deposit control additives, cetane improvers, lubricity additives, friction modifiers, antifoam additives, corrosion inhibitors, demulsifiers/dehazers, anti-valve seat recession additives, fuel borne catalysts for particulate filters, metal deactivators, stabilizers, cold flow improvers, and conductivity improvers.

In 2018, the FATG published an Overview of Diesel Additives & Filtration Issues. The purpose of this document is to help increase understanding of diesel additives, their addition to diesel fuel, and common filtration issues.
