ok,so how much are you putting into a tank? i figured since iam in the midwest the fuel already has winter additives,so i thought id kick the cetane up a littl ,i have heard pretty good reviews on the ps productsIt will help some, you may squeeze 20 mpg out of it, but the main thing is you will be extending the life of your fuel system (injectors, pumps, etc.). I use it in every tank, currently the white bottle for winter.
Same here I run about 10 oz. per 30 gallon fill, and i use the silver jug stuff too. The Diesel Kleen claims to contain no alcohol, but I don't think the Centane Boost (white bottle) does.I put in one ounce per three gallons of fuel. 24 gallons of fuel will get 8 oz of treatment
Ya know it really stinks, like it has a smell like i dont know what, alot of these additives say NO ALCOHOL but i wonder about that because there are so many alcohol derivatives,ya know what iam sayin ,with that bein harmful to the pump how can we be sure, i guess the track record of users for alot of miles kinda tells the story, i know sum of em have either in um,we can make either junkys out of are Ds with that stuff!Both the Diesel Kleen(silver), and the Anti-gel(white) contain no alcohol.
Man,i just used 8 ounces in 20 gallons ,but i guess iam alittl conserative,and also a rookie at this right now.I'm like most - I use the white in winter & silver in summer - 16 ounces per tank (about 25 gal +/- per fill up.)
It does have a strong odor - had a bottle leak in the cab & took over a week to get the odor out - don't light a cigarette!!!
Yup zackly, i know what ya mean ,power service and fttp are very popular at the truck stops and so is Howes and marvil mistery stuff. I think that says thats what truckers are runnin--i think maybe its partially for mileage and antigel if there goin north, but ya know they never shut off there up and down the highway,my truck sits more than it runs by far 90 sit 10 drive,i need whats best for this situation,whats best for me half or full tank??ok follow my math here as i may be a little.... slow here.......
PS Diesel Kleen (silver bottle) 32 oz
for 100 gallon treatment (3 cetane):
100 gal / 32 oz bottle = 3.125 gallons of diesel per ounce
for 50 gallon treatment (6 cetane):
50 gal / 32 oz bottle = 1.5625 gallons of diesel per ounce
if i am correct, i was adding 4 oz to 1/2 tank (12 to 13 gallons). 3.25 gallons diesel per ounce. I will say this, the stuff really works even at the 3 cetane level on summer blend. Wish I knew where to find the cetane level for the diesel i buy. (it is not on the pump and is irving diesel usually) I am running fppf total power now in winter but will be switching to the PS artic white bottle because i cannot find the fppf cetane boost bottle to make the kennedy ****tail. (yes i know I can buy it online but do not need a case. it would take me forever to use it at 22000 miles a year). I went to every big rig dealer in town and there are a few here in northern maine and every one had PS so that tells me something right there. :ro)
I found 32 oz white bottles on sale at VIP for 3.99 each. Bought a case of 12. They're 4.99 every day. NAPA sells them for 6.99. Don't know about the silver bottle prices.Thanks for all the good info, I just picked up a bottle yesterday of the PS silver bottle and will be using it next fill up. From what I have read this should work good. I picked it up at Kragen auto parts and it was 7.99 per bottle. New to diesels so I am still learning. Thanks for all the good info.
