- dweisel isn't diesel anymore!
Since I have no storage tanks, when I pour in an additive to regular ULSD it is always an additive with emulsifying properties. In part this is because my fuel filtration system has no drain for water. But even if it did, those do not work very well in a mobile environment.
I've always been "old school" diesel with 30+ years of heavy equipment operation as both an operatior and an owner operator. So, my diesel experience comes from way back.(the good old days) Thats not saying that over 30+ years things don't change and the new techniques of today don't work better. I've always looked at any fuel tank as fuel storage. And that it was better to drop the water out of the fuel than to emulsify it and try to run it through the engine. Therefore thats why I based my use of a demulsifing additive for any equipment,tractors or cars that I've owned.
Evidently Bentley must feel so too. Section 20. Fuel Storage and Supply in the Bentley Manual.
But in the end it all comes down to. What you personally feel comfortable with.
