I run Ford's PM-22A cetane booster-lubricant in the warm months since I use it in my truck anyway and I like Stanodyne's winter treatment for the very cold weeks I may experience.

Stanadyne Winter 1000
Tried and tested in sub zero conditions in heavy equipment over the years on jobsites. Never had a jelling issue using it.

Hiya,

It doesn't matter what brand you use for a treatment product, the only thing that matters is:

If you have a water separator, you need to use a "demulsifier" type treatment. This will enable the separator to remove water from the fuel.

If you DON'T HAVE a water separator, you need to use a "emulsifier" type treatment. This will break up the water into tiny particles that will hopefully pass through the injection system harmlessly. Note: This only applies to tier 3 and earlier equipment and pre-1998 on-road equipment with mechanical injection systems, later than that with the electronic injection systems you run the risk of injection system damage from the water traversing the high pressure components if you use an emulsifier.

Power Service because that’s what Penske used in big trucks and it worked well
