1. Is it safe to use Power Service diesel fuel additives in diesel particulate filters, diesel oxidation catalysts and/or EGR engines?


Yes, use of Power Service diesel additives is safe for use in all diesel engines.
2. Will use of Power Service diesel additives void my manufacturer’s warranty?

No, when used as directed on the container label, use of Power Service diesel additives will not void any engine manufacturer’s warranty. Power Service is the largest manufacturer of diesel fuel additives in the USA and our products are used most often by diesel engine owners. Additionally, our products are sold through many Original Engine Manufacturer (OEM) dealers and service centers.
3. Do Power Service diesel additives contain alcohol?

The only product manufactured by Power Service that contains the type of non-harmful alcohols recommended by engine manufacturers for removal of water is Power Service Diesel 911. Diesel 911, as its name implies, is used to solve the fuel emergencies diesel engine operators most commonly encounter. In winter, Diesel 911 reliquefies gelled fuel and de-ices frozen fuel-filters in a matter of minutes, eliminating the need for a tow truck. Diesel 911 also removes water from the fuel system to prevent icing problems and extend the life of fuel-filters, fuel injection pumps and fuel injectors.
No other Power Service product contains any alcohols of any kind, including Power Service Diesel Fuel Supplement +Cetane Boost and Diesel Kleen +Cetane Boost.
4. What is the difference between Diesel Fuel Supplement +Cetane Boost and Diesel Kleen +Cetane Boost?

Diesel Fuel Supplement® +Cetane Boost® is our antigel product – it provides superior protection for cold-weather operability. This is the product to use during the winter months to prevent fuel gelling down to -40°F. and equal the performance of a 50/50 blend of No. 2 and No. 1 diesel fuels.
Diesel Fuel Supplement +Cetane Boost also contains a detergent package to keep fuel injectors clean and a cetane boost of up to 4 numbers for faster cold starts, smoother and quieter engine operation with more power, less smoke and increased MPG. It also contains our proprietary Slickdiesel® lubricator to protect fuel injectors and pumps against accelerated wear from Low and Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) fuels.

Diesel Kleen® +Cetane Boost® is the product to use in the non-winter months for maximum engine performance. Diesel Kleen +Cetane Boost does NOT contain an antigel and will NOT prevent fuel from gelling.

However, Diesel Kleen has a more concentrated detergent package to clean dirty injectors and reduce exhaust emissions up to 50 percent. Diesel Kleen provides a larger cetane boost than Diesel Fuel Supplement, up to 6 numbers, for smoother quieter engine operation with more power, less smoke and  increased MPG up to 8 percent. Diesel Kleen also contains our proprietary Slickdiesel® lubricator to protect fuel injectors and pumps against accelerated wear from Low and Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) fuels.

5. Will it hurt my engine to use Diesel Fuel Supplement +Cetane Boost year-around, even though it contains an antigel for winter operation?

Diesel Fuel Supplement +Cetane Boost will not hurt or harm any diesel motor if used year-around. Diesel Fuel Supplement is a multi-functional additive that has been on the market for over 40 years and has a proven record of excellent performance by thousands of diesel fuel users.

6. Can I use your products in gasoline?

Our diesel fuel additives are specially formulated to be used in diesel fuel. We do not recommend the use of our diesel fuel additives in gasoline.

7. What is +Cetane Boost® and what does it do for my engine?

+Cetane Boost 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. Delayed ignition is a primary cause of increased emissions and inferior engine performance. The lower the cetane number, the longer the ignition delay. Fuels with high cetane numbers burn more quickly and more completely, resulting in smoother running engines with less power lag, reduced emissions and easier engine starting.

+Cetane Boost® is a component of our Diesel Fuel Supplement and Diesel Kleen products that serves to boost the cetane number of untreated fuel. Diesel Fuel Supplement provides a cetane boost up to 4 numbers, while Diesel Kleen boosts cetane up to 6 numbers.
8. What is Slickdiesel® Lubricator and what does it do for my engine?

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, “Shortened life of engine components such as fuel injection pumps and unit injectors usually can be ascribed to a lack of fuel lubricity and hence is a concern to engine manufacturers.” Slickdiesel® Lubricator meets the new ASTM HFRR 520 Lubricity Specifications for the United States and the more stringent European Specification of 460 in most fuels.
9. I am concerned about Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) fuel, do you have a product recommendation?

Diesel Fuel Supplement +Cetane Boost is the product of choice during the winter months due to its superior antigel formulation. Diesel Kleen +Cetane Boost is to be used in the non-winter months for peak engine performance (no antigel component). Both of these products contain the Power Service proprietary Slickdiesel® lubricator that provides maximum lubricity protection to pumps and injectors against wear caused by Low or Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) fuel. Slickdiesel ® Lubricator meets the new ASTM HFRR 520 Lubricity Specifications for the United States and the more stringent European Specification of 460 in most fuels.

10. Will Arctic Express Biodiesel Antigel work in a B100 fuel?

Arctic Express Biodiesel Antigel 1:500, effectively treats biodiesel blends up to a B20 (20% biodiesel) for Cold-Filter Plugging Point (CFPP) and Pour Point reduction. It is not designed for use in biodiesel blends that exceed 20%. Arctic Express Biodiesel Antigel will not effectively treat a B100 fuel.
11. Can I buy your products online?

No, Power Service products are not available for online purchase. Due to the chemical nature of our products, we are unable to ship small quantities in a cost efficient manner.
