Power Service Products’ Diesel Kleen and Diesel Fuel Supplement have become the first fuel additives that Cummins has ever officially recommended in the marketplace.

In a first for the engine manufacturer, Cummins now recommends two fuel additives for use in diesel engines.

The company announced on Wednesday that it officially endorses and recommends two Power Service products: Diesel Kleen +Cetane Boost and Diesel Fuel Supplement +Cetane Boost.

According to Cummins, significant internal testing concluded that both products meet the engine manufacturer’s requirements.

“In recent years diesel fuel quality has become increasingly important as engines evolve and the diesel fuel manufacturing processes change,” said Roger England, director of technical quality and materials engineering for Cummins. “The Power Service Diesel Kleen and Diesel Fuel Supplement additives provide easily accessible solutions with proven technology to customers in the field when they encounter challenges with their fuel such as poor lubricity, low cetane numbers, low temperature operability issues, injector deposits, etc.”

According to Cummins, using Power Service Diesel Kleen as a year-round performance enhancer can maximize overall engine performance by cleaning dirty injectors, preventing injectors from sticking, smoothing rough-running engines, and improving fuel economy.

Diesel Fuel Supplement is a winterizer/anti-gel that is designed to prevent fuel gelling and to keep fuel filters from plugging with ice and wax. It is recommended for use in winter months when temperatures drop below 30 degrees Fahrenheit.

Ed Kramer, president of Power Service Products, said that the endorsement partnership with Cummins is “a culmination of 60 years of hard work and dedication toward developing the most consistent and effective diesel additives on the market.”

    Still doesn't test as well as Opti-Lube XPD. I don't care how much money PS gave Cummins to use their logo. http://opti-lube.com/diesel-fuel-improver/xpd-diesel-fuel-additives.html
