    I use the Power Service from TSC. I have never used the Howes. Is the Howes used for diesel applications also?

    I have been using white Power Service for years but switched to Howes last year after gelling in tractor and chipper with off road diesel, I haven't had any more problems but have also gone to a different fuel supplier.

    the howes i'm talking about is specifically for diesel.

    They may mate a gas addative.. but I'm not aware of it..

    I am a Howse guy. I have used PS also but notice less smoke on startup with Howse. Been using it since the late 90's I guess.

    I am sure you are fine with either. About as much difference as Coke and Pepsi or Valvoline and Pennzoil.

    Howes is 100 times better than PS. PS is the walmart brand of diesel additives.

    It is sold everywhere, but it is junk compared to whats out there.

    i'm getting ready to do the fuel filter on the .3 and may fill the filter with howes when i slap the cover back on.. juice the injectors up a bit.

    have had so much to do lately.. I've had to put off doing the fuel filter on the poor ole 7.3


    got off work at dark thirty last night and had to clean the throttle body on the non idling 5.3 gm the wife drives. 1 can of choke cleaner and a dirty rag and spent pair of gloves later it is back to starting and idling fine... day before tht the well pump caught on firet at the farm.. was out till midnight replacing wire, conduit, pressure switch and electrical box

    day before that had a stock tank leak.. before that.. the fridge in the house quit.. before that.. ( this could go on for a while.. )

    So long as you don't overdo it, it shouldn't hurt.

    My opinion as well.
    Kinda like comparing WD-40 to PB Blaster or Kroil.
