    Dear All,

    Years ago I took the maintenance course. Larry suggested a fuel additive that I used for years. However, I can not remember the name of the product and would appreciate if you can help.

    1. I would not recommend a fuel additive until you have taken a fuel sample and sent it to the lab. Most fuel is ultra low sulfur and should not be adjusted. If you live in an area where you could have very low temps. you could have gelling of the fuel. otherwise the fuel is designed to comply with your engine, new or old. Filtration is the key. If you think the fuel is bad or old take a sample. Napa, Caterpillar and other companies offers a fuel test sample that you can send to their Lab.
      Power Service offers a product used in every industry, but they have three different types that are determined by your individual needs.
      I hope this helps

  2. Hi, I need information on when will be your next course for owner, the cost, what’s the nearest airport to the classroom, the closest hotel, and any other thing I should know before makin a decision. Thanks
