    Default Diesel additive

    The tractor got kicked out of the garage for the first time, concerning about diesel getting jelly, what type of additive do you guys use in your tank? Thank you in advance.

    If it is winter blend you shouldn't have to add anything to prevent jelling... KennyV

    I also use Howes Diesel fuel treatment - it got better reviews on a website than PS.. You can get it at Northern Tool and a lot of truck stops..

    Optilube XPD is the most highly rated in studies for anti-wear. It also has a variety of other benefits including anti-gel.

    Problem is, you have to buy it online. I can't find any local dealers.

    I use Power Service (white bottle) in my kubota and my '97 Ford diesel year round.
    Because the Ford will sit outside all winter without being used, I also treated it with Power Service 911 as a little added insurance against gelling along with some PS BioKleen to help prevent algae in the tank.
