Should I Add Anything to my Diesel Fuel?

Truck drivers can be some of the pickiest drivers out there. They need very specific things from their trucks, and they aren’t willing to settle for less. Debates have raged on for decades about what truck brand is the strongest, or which type of engine is the best.

Plenty of people would argue that diesel engines are what you need if you want something powerful. Diesel engines are pretty powerful beasts, but they have their own quirks. One of the main quirks is that diesel fuel has a few more things you need to consider.

Are Diesel Detergents Important?

Most people don’t stop to think about what is really in their fuel. They fill up their trucks and cars, then move on with the rest of their day. No one stops to think about all of the different additives that are packed into our fuel. Gasoline has different additives in it than diesel fuel, and these components do a lot of different things for your engine.

Diesel fuel doesn’t actually have that many additives in it. That’s why you need to think about adding detergents and cleaners to your fuel. These additives can help keep fuel injectors clean, which will help give you a more consistent fuel economy. It can also help keep fuel lines clean which will do even more to help your fuel economy. Detergents are a quick and easy way to maintain the health of your engine with relative ease.
