These 3 steps help ensure your diesel will run all winter long.
You know the cliché: no one ever plans to fail; they just fail to plan. We’ve been making diesel additives in our family-owned business since 1956 and, over the course of these many decades, we’ve known countless diesel owners who have fallen into this trap and suffered the consequences.
But the good news is that you can outsmart winter with our simple 3-Step Winter Prep Guide!
Yes, there is something you can do this fall to make sure your diesel has smooth sailing all winter long. What’s that? Dehydrate your fuel tank.
Water is, and has always been, the number-one problem in diesel fuel. Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) fuel and the prevalence of biodiesel has intensified this problem.
Today’s fuels can no longer carry water dissolved in solution so, when temperatures fall below 30°F., the water will separate or fall out of solution and freeze on the facings of fuel-filters, preventing fuel flow.
Clear-Diesel Fuel & Tank Cleaner is the best solution to dehydrate your tank prior to winter and those sub-30-degree temperatures. This is the critical first step to set you up for a trouble-free winter!
OK, diesel drivers, what scares you more in cold weather: having to start your morning without hot coffee or not having your diesel start at all because you’ve got gelled diesel fuel? Let's just say Power Service customers only have to worry about the coffee!
Diesel Fuel Supplement +Cetane Boost is designed to prevent gelling and fuel-filter plugging by modifying the shape and size of wax crystals so they remain small enough to flow through fuel-filters, even in the coldest temperatures. When temperatures drop below 0°F., or when using biodiesel blends, you may need to double treat – the directions are on every bottle of Diesel Fuel Supplement. It's formulated with +Cetane Boost for faster cold starts and Slickdiesel Lubricator to protect pumps and injectors from increased wear. And it's the only antigel endorsed by Cummins, the leading global manufacturer of diesel engines.
Diesel Fuel Supplement prevents fuel gelling and protects against fuel-filter icing for peak winter operability. Stock up now, because you never know when Mother Nature will hit this winter!
Cheap insurance is, what? Like an extended warranty? Something you get talked into buying, but you’ll probably never use? Well, one thing’s for sure: we’re talking about your diesel here, not a TV. And, in this case, the cheap insurance policy is definitely the way to go!
Diesel 911 is an emergency-use product that reliquefies gelled diesel fuel and de-ices frozen fuel-filters. Diesel 911 has gotten hundreds of thousands of drivers off the side of the road in minutes by restoring the flow of fuel to the engine.
The truth is, there are a lot of diesel drivers who don't treat with a preventive antigel until it’s too late and they end up with gelled fuel. That usually happens in a deep cold snap. We’ve seen it time and time again, and that deep cold snap is exactly when Diesel 911 is flying off the shelves and no one can find it. Buy that cheap insurance policy and keep a jug on hand, just in case you need it! The old saying is true: it's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.
That’s it. Simple, right?
