This paper is an assessment of fuel consumption reduction due to the application of additive ENVIROX. Evaluation of economic benefits depending on engine load is also discussed in this paper. Furthermore, the influence of additives on the structure of selected engine parts, especially injection pumps, valves, combustion chambers, pistons and piston rings is assessed. The possible changes are monitored and compared before and after the long term trial. There is presented the influence of fuel additives to the environmental burden by some controlled emission components of exhaust gases also. Keywords: additive, oxide cerium, nanoparticles, economic benefits, changes in shape and dimensions of selected engine parts, tribodiagnostics analysis, components of the exhaust gases. 1 Introduction With advancing civilization the society development is related to the technical progress. In its favor, it is necessary to cover energy costs, the trend can be miniaturized devices; cost reduction, increased equipment efficiency and lower energy consumption. All potential benefits are welcome, especially new technologies in section of rotating machines such as internal combustion engines. To their greater efficiency can also contribute new products from the field of nanotechnology. Important position in industry, agriculture and supply to individuals and businesses has transportation. It is inextricably linked to fuel consumption. This has had an excessive growth in the Czech Republic; the consumption is between
