Here ya go, straight from GM bulletin #03-06-04-017B


Water Emulsifiers and Demulsifiers


If the customer desires to use a fuel additive, care must be taken in its selection. There are two common methods that fuel additives use to cope with water in the fuel. One method is through demulsification of water in the fuel. This method causes water particles to combine together to form larger particles, which drop out of suspension. This allows the fuel filter/water separator to separate the water from the fuel as it is designed to. The other method of coping with water in the fuel is through emulsification. This method, often using alcohol as the emulsifier, keeps water particles suspended in the fuel. Emulsification of water in the fuel can allow water to get past the fuel filter/water separator, in most cases causing damage to the fuel system. Only alcohol free water demulsifiers should be used in General Motors diesel engines. GM Diesel Fuel Conditioner ®, P/N 88861009 (in Canada, 88861038) or both *Racor Power Shot Plus® and *Stanadyne® diesel fuel additives are alcohol free and utilize water demulsifiers to cope with water in the fuel. Other brands may be available in different areas; be sure that they clearly state that they are alcohol free demulsifiers before use.

Just went to the store to look for Stanadyne but they didnt have any.

Im going to pick up my 2002 DMax tomorrow, its been sitting on the lot for a couple weeks. Worried there might be some water in the fuel

The only thing the PepBoys had was Red Line synthetic oil. No where on the bottle does it say "does not contain alcohol" but then again it doesnt say that it DOES. It does say it contains "aliphatic hydrocarbons and alkyl nitrates" and that it removes up to 3 ounces of water from 20 gallons of diesel fuel

Does this sound like something good to throw in the tank on my first fill up or should i stop some other places and look for the Stanadyne??? Where is a good place to buy Stanadyne? Thanks for your help!

You could go to the dealer to get a bottle to hold you over. They usually stock it.
