It is unlikely to cause a problem. In my experience doubling the dose makes it run better if anything.

Yup. It will just run better. You might want to repeat it next tank.

I live in SW Idaho where the temp. will be getting down in the 10 degree range. My tractor manual indicates I should be switching to No. 1 diesel. Is that the case or can I get by with No. 2? Also should I using an additive? If so, any recommendations for what kind to use.

dkheckmanl, #2 is just fine. Go to your local automotive store and get (Power Service) additive for diesels. This additive should be added when it is above 32 degrees. If this is not possible then and mixture of #2 and kerosene 60/40 will work ok.

===================
I thought you could use it year round; not just when it's above 32.

lbrown59, You are right I stand corrected. Power Service can be used year-round. I Had used the John Deere Additive for so many years (which states to add above 32 degrees) that just popped out, Sorry for the mis-informationSmile I almost forgot one of the reasons for switching. Please, don't tell the folks at the Power Service ClubSmile)

This isn't about additives but has anybody used "propane injection" in a diesel? For grins and giggles I "injected" unburned propane from a propane torch into the air cleaner of my backhoe and didn't hear any difference (I was expecting a faster RPM). Perhaps the volume of propane makes the difference.

earthworks; Propane injection brings back memories of when the M and W gear co. selling turbo kits for 4010 and 4020 Deeres back in the mid sixties faster than they could build them. They could easily boost the power of a 4020 from 94 to 125. Then somebody came up with the idea of injecting propane in the airstream ahead of the turbo. Wow could them things put out power. All at once you started seeing lots of used turbos and propane injection kits for sale. The rest of the engine and everything behind just wasn't ready for that much heat and torque. They tried oversize aluminum ribbed oil pans, bigger radiators, all sorts of things. Of course most every diesel today has a turbo, they are enginered to handle the extra pressuer and heat. Now since I've rambled on about a question you did'nt ask, I really had kind of forgotten about the propane injection thing and really don't know why it did'nt get very far. Maybe someone else can enlighten both of us. Frank.
