    Default Diesel fuel treatment

    Anyone ever try seafoam in diesel fuel tractor? Do you put it in fuel filter or just add to tank?

    Skip the seafoam and go straight to Howes.

    What is Howes?...better than seafoam?...add to fuel or add to fuel filter when new? I have power service in fuel now but I want something to clean fuel system.

    Seafoam, also known as snake oil. Is only IPA, naphtha gasoline and baby oil/mineral oil.
    Save your money and run #1 dewaxed diesel in the winter. Dose it with a little IPA to absorb the water.

    seafoam is not worth the money for regular use! I used to use it but it cost 4 times as much as Lucas fuel additive. For gasoline I only add ISO heat alcohol fall and spring. I change my filters and the fuel additives are not worth the money.

    For diesel only add a winter anti gel. Can't trust the pump around here. Howes an power service are great anti gel around here!

    I used to use Power Service white bottle, until they changed the formula and instructions. They now warn to only use it in cold months. I switched to Howes Diesel Treat, which can be found just as easily, and it can be used year round. No gel problems.
