Diesel 911®, 80 OZ Bottle #8080
Diesel 911® is the product diesel-engine operators call on when they have a winter diesel fuel emergency.
Use of Diesel 911 will not harm diesel oxidation catalysts or diesel particulate filters on 2007 or newer engines.
To De-Ice Frozen Fuel-FiltersWater is dissolved in and carried by all diesel fuels. At temperatures below +32°F, water that has collected in fuel-filters freezes. This causes decreased fuel flow to the engine and results in reduced engine power or engine shutdown.
To de-ice frozen fuel-filters, check to insure that diesel fuel in the equipment fuel tanks is not gelled. If fuel is liquid:
Empty remaining liquid from fuel-filters.
Fill fuel-filters with 50% Diesel 911® and 50% diesel fuel.
If outside temperature is below +20°F, add Power Service Diesel Fuel Supplement + Cetane Boost or Arctic Express Diesel Fuel Antigel.
To Reliquefy Gelled Diesel FuelDuring cold weather operation, diesel fuel that has not been treated with Power Service Diesel Fuel Supplement +Cetane Boost or Arctic Express® Diesel Fuel Antigel can change from a liquid to a solid. This transformation is called gelling.
To reliquefy gelled diesel fuel:
Add one gallon of Diesel 911® to each 100 gallons of fuel in equipment tanks.
Start engine - let idle for 5 minutes to heat fuel system before resuming normal operation.
To Remove Water from Diesel Fuel SystemsDiesel fuel systems accumulate water during normal operations. The constant recirculation of diesel fuel for lubrication and cooling of fuel injectors causes thermal variations within fuel tanks and produces water in the form of condensation. Water can also be introduced into a fuel system from fuel suppliers that do not periodically check their fuel-handling equipment for water contamination.
To remove water from a diesel fuel system:
Drain or pump water from the bottom of fuel tanks until diesel fuel appears.
Add one gallon of Diesel 911® to each 200 gallons of diesel fuel.
