Lubricity Study


I have no dog in the fight here. I use Startron with every fillup if the fuel will be stored for over a year, which in my case at least 500 gallons is always a year old. As I've stated at least 3 times on this thread, my company is a hugh diesel consumer and we work with most of the fuel suppliers around the world. All additives we use are refinery added. By all means use "mouse milk" to keep the CAV pump working right. Remember though, the old engines and related fuel systems that have seals, O rings and gaskets are not compatible with today's modern elixirs. Can you believe that*many of today's more popular diesel fuel additives are*nothing more than motor oil cut with biocides and*methanol? And methyl alcohol is dynamite to the above mentioned engine parts.
