Diesel Fuel Additives will keep your diesel-powered vehicle on the road and out of the shop.
Untreated diesel fuel, while an efficient energy source, may lack a sufficient amount of additive technology to truly boost the performance of diesel engines and increase fuel economy. In addition to their increased reliability and efficiency, Diesel engines are problematically heavier, more expensive, and may be more susceptible to sludge build-up, fuel gelling, and various other issues that may limit performance.
Generally speaking, Diesel Fuel Additives may be classified into four sub-types:
While some manufacturers include various degrees of each sub-type of aftermarket additives, most diesel fuel additives are designated to handle one task very well.
