Could someone straighten this out once and for all?

At the Walmart I go to there are two different kinds of Power Service additive, one is a grey bottle (cetane and lube) and the other is the white bottle (cetane, anti gelling, and lube).

1. Are these emulsifying or demulsifying?
2. Do these contain alcohol? (just read voided warranty thread)
3. Are these ok to use.

I have been using the white bottle with 8 oz. per tank since new, now have 12,000 miles with no engine/fuel trouble.

Thanks!

Do a search on Power Service. They replied to an e-mail I sent requesting that info. It is included in its entirety.

My experience with Power Service is so-so. Can't really tell a difference. There is no water treatment in PowerService at all (as far as I can tell). Anyway, I will be switching to Primrose as I can get it locally.


Later....

I'm using the whyte btl stuff but will discontinue when empty. I read emails (BTW the aforementioned search didn't work for me), have emailed and even spoke on the phone. Everyone seemed evasive. Swear it won't void warranty and about the only conclusive statement is that it contains no alcohol. I was left w/70% certainty that its a demulsifier ~ but not stated on the btl. Consequently, as with anything, if I can't get a yea yea or nay nay, I move on to something else. Think I'll try FPPF Total Power next. Edited by: ShumDit

I wrote to them and this is what I got in writing.

It is neither. There is not enough room in the container to put an effective
water dispersant. If you have a water or water related problem you should
use the Diesel 911 to get the water under control and then continue to use
the Diesel Kleen.

Emulsifiers are not recommended and demulsifers will not work in a general
use additive. To solubilize water you have to use a large amount of an
additive to effectively take care of the water problem. Multi purpose
additives cannot contain a strong lubricity, detergent, cetane boost,
corrosion and stability package and sill have room to carry the necessary
chemical to control water.

I gave all the details so that you and other consumers will realize that
there are a lot of additives making strong claims about how their additive
does everything and take care of water too. Once you have the details, you
can make a better choice, get more for your money and not be mislead by
inflated claims.

Why do I want to spend my money on an additive that does nothing for the water issue?? I run the Total Power.Edited by: FirstDiesel

Unless you live in the top of the Texas Panhandle you do not need the anti-gel no mater what brand you use. I use the pffp total power but the truck only has 7k so I wouldn't be much help in how good it is. Reason I use it, thats what most of the guys use that want a emulsifier. My 2 pennys
