I think you have it reversed. Demulsifiers separate water and fuel to help the water separator do its job. Emulsifiers help to combine water and fuel so it passes through to the combustion chambers...

And this is why I buy my own oil and take 3 jugs (12 quarts) to the dealer. Only once have they mentioned that it needs 13 quarts, but I top off at home. When I had an Ecoboost, I took 6 quarts and...

OL has more lube and cetane boost than PM22a. PM22a is only 2 points of cetane boost while OL + is 5-7. OL had the largest lubricity in the 2007 test and a more recent test indicates that hasn't...

The HPFP needs lubricity whether deleted or not and it should be every tank. Cetane boost also reduces soot and improves power. For me, Opti-Lube Summer Plus does it all, cetane, lubricity, cleaning...

Probably undetermined. Most of the US is 40. However, CA requires 51 and east Texas 48 for air quality. European standards are 51-55 so I guess that is a good indicator. Soot reduction is good for...

Additives have different purposes. PM22a is mostly for lubricity for long fuel pump life, but has little cetane booster. Enerburn is a combustion catalyst to reduce soot via a cleaner burn but...

Any additive that reduces soot should result in a cleaner EGR. PM22a is not one of them as it mostly adds lubricity with very little cetane boost, but if they ask, PM22a is all you used. Let us know...

I swore that I would never have a diesel engine because of the stink, smoke and noise. When I saw those issues were resolved on newer diesels and saw the diesel advantages, I bought my 2015...

No, but it does soften the torque management some. You still have to disable traction control to light up the rear tires.

When my truck was stock, I hated the shift into 6th gear at 38 MPH and the engine at 900 RPM with 3.55 rear. When I needed to accelerate, not much happened and soot built rapidly. With both 5* and...
