    The problem of minimizing induction system deposition has plagued the refining industry intermittently since the early twenties, when thermal cracking began to be employed. Control of the deposit-forming properties of gasolines by additives and through refining techniques became an essential part of petroleum processing, and it has played an important role in making possible the advancement in fuels that has been so necessary for today's high-compression engines.
