Both are blended for ULSD. Power service is a cetane booster also. Howe's has worked great for me as has power service. I am using Howe's now as it seems a little cheaper here right now also. Either way you should be fine.

I use Power Service regularly, my dad swears by Howes. We both drive truck for a living and neither have had a problem.

BTW, we haven't had a night about 0F in 10 nights.

I run Howes - no gelling troubles - I usually work in northern Alberta and BC for most of the winter. -20 to -40*C most of the time.

Either product will be fine.

Howes for 33 years in the excavating biz--NEVER a gelling--EVERY fill gets a dose,more when colder.Just found out that United Van Lines uses Howes in every one of their 6700 tractors--never a problem--''You go or Howes pays the tow''.
