Wow... The Stanadyne Lubricity Formula didn't do so well.
This surprises me. It is supposed to be a dedicated lubricity improver!

Looks like I will be using more B-20 and getting some Opti-Lube.

Spicer, thank you for your work on this study!

Hey guys, I know its not available everywhere but I have to plug SOY biodiesel if I can. That way maybe the increased use can lead to some support of Americas farmers.

I also throw in some TCW3 two stroke.

Truck loves the stuff.

Great work SPICER and once again thank you for all your hard work!
Ron, I can't find a location here in Orange County to buy B100. Where is your source located?

The next problem I have is how long can I store it before it deteriorates?

I would like to buy it and use it as an additive to my ULSD. Need to find some 1/2 gallon suitable containers for this.

Curious if any of these additives have interactions with fuel supplied lubricants and/or rely on their presence to work.

That is, it would be interesting to know how some of these work with treated fuel. Does a 316 additive improvement stack with a fuel's 200?

Does alcohol content invalidate the HFRR test or does it increase the wear using HFRR and real world in a similar fashion?

Oh, and Thank You for your efforts.

Good job on the study! TYVM

Is there any copyright on the test?

Can I make a copy and hang it in my Biodiesel Production facility?

I have alot of customers who always ask what is the best additive and I guess I been telling them correctly!

This company is in Placentia. I sent them an e amil and they sent back a credit application so they can give you a card you can use. I guess they don't take regular credit cards and they don't like cash!

Thanks a bunch to SPICER and anyone else who helped out. After moving earlier this year, I've been running B20 from one of the local stations, as much as I can.

I'm guessing FPPF Total Power would have come out close to the FPPF RV/bus stuff? I've got 8 16oz bottles of Stanadyne Performance Formula that I was planning on using when I'm not near a biodiesel pump. Guess I'll just keep some 2stroke oil instead.

I see the Opti-Lube summer and winter products on their site but not the XPD? Is this a new and as-yet to be released product?
