Can I use Diesel Fuel Supplement +Cetane Boost and Diesel 911 at the same time?
Yes, Diesel Fuel Supplement +Cetane Boost and Diesel 911 are compatible and can be used together.Read More
How often should I use Power Service diesel additives?
Our recommended Year-Round Maintenance Schedule is:
Every time you fill up:
- If temperatures are above 30°F, add Diesel Kleen +Cetane Boost (silver bottle) for maximum performance. This Max HP Formula is loaded with cetane, detergent and lubricity improver to provide peak diesel performance.
- If temperatures are below 30°F, add Diesel Fuel Supplement +Cetane Boost (white bottle) for winter operability. This Arctic Formula will prevent fuel gelling and protect against fuel-filter icing.
Will it hurt my engine to use Diesel Fuel Supplement +Cetane Boost year-round, even though it contains an antigel for winter operability?
No, it will not hurt your engine to use Diesel Fuel Supplement +Cetane Boost (in the white bottle) year-round. However, for maximum performance we recommend using Diesel Kleen +Cetane Boost (in the silver bottle) when temperatures are above 30°F. (Use our seasonal tip to remember: white for winter and silver for summer.)Read More

Are Power Service diesel additives effective in biodiesel for winter operability?
Yes, Diesel Fuel Supplement +Cetane Boost effectively treats biodiesel blends and the directions can be found on the container label. Keep in mind that biodiesel can have winter operability problems at temperatures higher than standard petroleum diesel. Refer to your owner’s manual for the biodiesel specifications recommended for your vehicle. Having Diesel 911 on hand for winter emergency use is always a good idea.Read More
Does biodiesel contain higher amounts of water than regular diesel fuel?
Biodiesel can contain up to 10 times more water than standard petroleum diesel fuel. This excess water can end up in your fuel tank and result in numerous problems, including accelerated fuel-filter plugging, microbial contamination and icing problems in winter. Power Service recommends treating with Clear-Diesel Fuel & Tank Cleaner at least quarterly, or as needed, to remove water. Clear-Diesel also disperses contaminants and stabilizes fuel during long-term storage.Read More

What is Slickdiesel Lubricator?
Slickdiesel Lubricator is a proprietary Power Service diesel fuel lubricity additive that is added to many of our products to increase the lubrication properties of diesel fuel. This increase in lubricity will increase the life of fuel pumps and injectors. The fuel pump manufacturers (Bosch, Delphi, Denso, Siemens and Stanadyne) consider fuel lubricity to be the most crucial property of diesel fuel as it relates to reduction of pump and injector wear. The Engine Manufacturer Association (EMA) has stated that,Read More
What is +Cetane Boost?
Cetane is a powerful energy compound that improves the ignition quality of fuel. There is a direct relationship between a diesel fuel’s cetane number and its ignition point. The lower the cetane number, the longer the ignition delay. Fuels with high cetane numbers burn more quickly and more completely, resulting in smoother and quieter running engines, quicker engine starts, more power and improved fuel economy. In fact, The Engine Manufacturers Association (EMA) states, “Fuels with low cetane numbers will cause hard starting,Read More
