Why Should I Use Diesel Formula Fuel Stabilizer?
In 2006, the EPA mandated the reformulation of diesel fuels, reducing sulfur content to less than 15 ppm. These newly reformulated diesel fuels, called Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel and Bio-Diesel, are less stable than diesel fuels of the past. The reduction in sulfur also means less lubrication to protect the diesel engine from wear, leading to more breakdowns and major engine problems. Diesel Formula STA-BIL is specially formulated to help prevent sludge and sediment formation and the darkening of diesel fuel. Diesel Formula STA-BIL contains high levels of detergents and lubricity agents, and when used regularly, haleps remove these sediments as well as any engine deposits that may have already formed, in addition to lubricating critical fuel system components to kepp your diesel engine running like new.
Does Regular (Red) Fuel Stabilizer Work In Diesel Fuel Systems?
Diesel fuel systems and gasoline systems are designed differently, and require different additives. In addition, regulations issued by the EPA over the last few years have resulted in diesel fuel reformulations (to Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel fuels), creating a need for more specialized diesel specific additives. In 2010, we created a special Diesel Formula STA-BIL, designed specifically to address problems related to the new Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel fuels and new diesel engine technologies, including thermal oxidation (heating of fuel), sludge and sediment formation, corrosion, and lubricity issues. It also helps remove water from the fuel. Using Regular STA-BIL Fuel Stabilizer in Diesel will not harm the diesel system in anyway, but will not be effective. In addition, the red dye in Regular STA-BIL Fuel Stabilizer can cause potential legal issues if used in On-Road Diesel Fuel, as Off-Road diesel fuel is purposely dyed red for tax purposes.
What Types Of Fuel Can Diesel Formula Fuel Stabilizer Be Used In?
Diesel Formula STA-BIL is safe to use in ALL Diesel Fuels, including Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel and Bio-Diesel blends. It is also safe to use in ANY Diesel Engine, including Marine and Agricultural equipment.
