Re: Storing diesel

Wouldn't a white bottle of power service work good?

Re: Storing diesel

Use power service. And make sure it has the anti gel in it.

As practice from bio, I would store it in a cool dark place.

Re: Storing diesel

I store my truck each winter and I put a little Racor conditioner in it and some Racor Algicide and I start it up each spring with no problems.

Re: Storing diesel

I've also heard of adding Vitamin E in the fuel to prevent algie growth.

But that may just be for BIO

Re: Storing diesel

I've been using Pri-D for storing B50 in a marine environment for up to 1 year. No problems.

However, I'm not sure if Pri-D emulsifies water. You may want to double-check. I've heard, but cannot confirm, that water emulsifying additives can make fuel/water separators ineffective.
