 Diesel Fuel Supplement

Have a 5 gallon fuel tank used for filling tractor. What quantity do you recommend? The (1st) recommended additive is 32 ounces to each 100 gal of fuel then also (2nd) recommends 32 ounces to each 50 gal if you wish for faster injectors clean-up and maximum cetane boost. I have a new tractor. If my math is correct for a 5 gal can would be 1.6 ounces to achieve the (1st) recommendation and 3.2 ounces for the (2nd) recommendation. Does this make sense? The product brand is Power Service sold by Wal-Mart.

I mix about 2 ounces of Power Service in every can as soon as I puchase the fuel. It also helps stabilize the fuel in the can if it doesn't get used immediately. For a new tractor, the higher mix ratio isn't necessary.

Thanks for the confirmation Beagle. Was loking to round it off and thought 2 ounces would be sufficient. I add gas additives to all my storage containers for snowblower, chainsaw, etc. I think it really helps my equipment starts right up after long durations. So I'll be adding PS to the yellow can now. Thanks. Pa.

Power Service is the most readily available and cheapest. I use it in my Cummins and Deere. I also have used with very good results the Deere Summer Formula fuel additive. Standayne also makes a very good performance formula that claims the same. Incidentally, Stanadyne used to make the Deere fuel additive.

It might be overkill, but I use a three step fuel treatment method. I add Sta-bil to the yellow cans before filling them with diesel. This cuts down on fuel oxidation and degradation. When refueling the tractor, I first add PS or JD fuel treatment to the tank, then refill the tank by pouring fuel through a water filtering funnel.

The reason I don't add the PS/JD treatment to the yellow containers is that they contain water dispersal agents (alcohol) that will allow any water to slip through the fuel filtering funnel. I don't think Sta-bil has these dispersal agents since the label doesn't say it does.

I use STA_BIL to all my gas equipment, I didn't realize that it can be used with diesel fuel also. If so can I use it along with PS?

I have been using Sta-bil and PS together for over a year and it works just fine.

Kwschumm, I don't think the power service has any alcohal in it. may be the other brand your using does but not sure as I only use PS. The PS is good stuff and it's priced fair I run it in my tractor and my Duramax.

I thought that water dispersing agents were primarily alcohol, but maybe not. The water filtering fuel funnel docs warn not to add water dispersal agents to fuel prior to filtering it. The PS bottle says that it disperses water in fuel, but it doesn't say what additive they use to do that.
