Steve Sikorsky in the Howes Lubricator Lab talking about Bio Diesel Fuel and how the Howes product
line can combat the problems that come along with it.
As the ambient air temperatures fall, the ability for water to condense in fuel tanks increases and can be carried into the filter/heater unit. During periods of extreme cold this should be done on a daily basis. The fuel filters are the only protection the engine has against contaminants in the fuel. A larger micron fuel filter should never be used to extend filter life or increase flow. It may void the warranty and can be damaging to the pump and/or the injectors.
You will do more to COOL the engine by idling a truck coming off the road vs. shutting it off. (Engine temperature rises approx. 18 degrees when it is shut off.) Conversely, starting a cold truck and letting it idle is futile. If you need to warm a truck thats been sitting, get in it and drive it around the yard and exercise the truck once it has reached maximum oil-pressure. This will warm the engine, transmission, differential and suspension. Not to mention prevent running the risk of potential fines for idling for both the driver and the organization.
September trailers orders were 56,000 units, exceeding the previous record from October 2014 by more than 10,000 trailers, according to FTR. Similarly, ACT Research’s preliminary estimate for September 2018 net trailer orders is 58,200 units.
fuel and additive are my choice. I can tell you from experience that your “Diesel Treat” makes the engine idle a lot smoother and seems to pull better. I will continue using your product because of these benefits.
Howes Diesel Treat. It's a diesel conditioner with anti-gel and contains a cold flow improver designed to prevent gelling in winter.
Yes. Both Diesel Treat and Meaner Power Kleaner are effective in biodiesel blends up to B-20.
Stamps can be redeemed for Howes logo merchandise. Visit the promotions link for details.
Diesel Treat contains a cold flow improver to prevent gelling in cold weather. Meaner Power Kleaner is a concentrated injector cleaner and lubricant designed for warmer weather.
Howes products are safe to use in any diesel engine, contain no alcohol or harmful solvents, are particulate filter friendly and will not void any engine manufacturer's warranty.
Diesel Treat and Meaner Power Kleaner are specifically designed for diesel engines. We do not recommend them for use in gasoline engines. Howes Fuel Enhancer is a versatile, preventative maintenance product safe and effetive to use in all diesel and gas applications. Gas Conditioner was discontined in 2017.
No. Howes products naturally improve the combustion quality of diesel fuel eliminating the need for cetane boosters.
Howes additives are petroleum based. They displace or demulsify water rather than absorb or emulsify it. This is the method preferred by engine manufacturers.
