The XDP Diesel Power Plus Fuel Additive will certainly improve cold weather performance, but I’d recommend running the XDP Polar-D Winter Formula Diesel Fuel Additive once the extreme winter temperatures begin.
Diesel fuel can begin to cloud around 32ºFand gelling can begin as high as 10ºF - 15ºF (depending on fuel quality and location). Gelling of your fuel is often referred to as the CFPP (Cold Filter Plugging Point). With just 1oz of our Polar-D additive in 8 gallons of fuel you can lower the CFPP by at least 10ºF. (Add prior to filling the fuel tank to assure proper mixing)
*Keep in mind that our fuel additive is designed to help reduce the problems associated with diesel fuels in extreme temps and extend the temperature rang in which a vehicle can operate. (Fuel quality, location, and the temperature of the fuel prior to mixing can all make a difference on the additives reaction)
The XDP Diesel Power Plus Fuel Additive XDDPP116 will increase cetane by 5 points.
Absolutely! – The XDP Diesel Power Plus Fuel Additive XDDPP116 is safe on all diesel engines including the newer diesel engines equipped with Diesel Particulate Filters.
Fuel additives will not and cannot void your manufactures warranty.
The XDP Diesel Power Plus Fuel Additive XDDPP116 comes in a squeeze measuring bottle. This allows you the measure just the right amount of additive without spillage or loss of product.
To use these dispensing bottles, simply loosen cap from dispensing chamber. Gently squeeze the bottle to fill measuring chamber with required amount of additive. Remove cap from dispensing chamber and easily pour the measured additive from the chamber.
(1 OZ Treats 32 Gallons of Diesel Fuel – Over treating your fuel is fine and will not harm anything)
Absolutely! The XDP Diesel Power Plus Fuel Additive XDDPP116 can be used on all diesel engines to Disperses Water, Clean and Lubricate the Fuel Injection System, Control Icing, Prevent Algae & Bacteria, Improve Fuel Economy and Increase Cetane.
Use of fuel preventative maintenance additive will cause no issues with your warranty.
Under normal storage conditions diesel fuel can be expected to stay in a useable condition
• 12 months or longer at an ambient of 20°C/68°F.
• 6-12 months at an ambient temperature higher than 30°C/86°F.
As diesel gets older a fine sediment and gum forms in the diesel brought about by the
reaction of diesel components with oxygen from the air. The fine sediment and gum will
block fuel filters, leading to fuel starvation and the engine stopping. Frequent filter changes
are then required to keep the engine going. The gums and sediments do not burn in the
engine very well and can lead to carbon and soot deposits on injectors and other combustion
The expected life of a diesel fuel is indicated by the oxidation stability test ASTM D2274.
The test measures how much gum and sediment will be deposited after keeping the fuel at
95°C/203°F in the presence of oxygen for 16 hours. It roughly corresponds to 1 year storage at
25°C/77°F. A result of less than 20mg/L of sediment and gum after the test is considered
acceptable for normal diesel.
(XDP’s Diesel Power Plus additive provides excellent stability with a result of 1.5mg/L in the ASTM D2274 test. )
Yes, our XDP DIESEL POWER PLUS FUEL ADDITIVE XDDPP116 is compatible with other fuel additives.
