 fuel additives, any harm?

Is there any restriction on the fuel additives. For the ford psd, you can not use any additive that will emulsify(sp) water and cause it to pass through the filter to the injectors. I thought that the Kubotas did not have this regstriction.
I am currently using some stuff called Heavy Duty SIL00 deisel fule conditioner and injector cleaner.

Thanks, Rich

 fuel additives, any harm?

Many fuel additives contain injector pump lubricants and anti-gel ingredients. The ones I see in tractor stores usually specify 'contains no methane'. Cheap box store additives may contain methane, which is stuff to be avoided in diesels. Methane is fairly common is additives for gas engines so it's good not to confuse products intended for gas and diesel. Even anti-freeze is available in gas and diesel varieties.

 fuel additives, any harm?

I have been using John Deere Summer Formula diesel fuel additive Stanadyne use to make John Deere's additive until recently but I think the tests Standyne advertises show it is about the same. Amalgamated makes a good diesel fuel additive but the smallest container they sell is 5 gallons and that sells for $95 out the door. I have been using John Deere Additive in the gallon can for the last 6 months in my Cummins and John Deere 4410 but at nearly $31 a gallon, that is a bit steep. I have been corresponding with Gary Pipenger at Amalgamated and he tells me that their additive is the best out there. Of course everyone says that about their products but, I am going to give it a try. Check out their web site. You can always get the Power Service fuel additive at Wally World but test show it is not all that good in every area.
