For the first time in company history, Cummins has officially endorsed diesel fuel additives, recommending two Power Service products, Diesel Kleen + Cetane Boost and Diesel Fuel Supplement + Cetane Boost.

The announcement came after Cummins conducted internal testing and concluded that both products meet Cummins requirements. These are the first fuel additive products that Cummins has ever officially recommendeded in the marketplace, according to the company.

“In recent years, diesel fuel quality has become increasingly important as diesel engines evolve and the diesel fuel manufacturing processes change,” said Roger England, director of technical quality and materials engineering for Cummins. “The Power Service Diesel Kleen and Diesel Fuel Supplement additives provide easily accessible solutions with proven technology to customers in the field when they encounter challenges with their fuel such as poor lubricity, low cetane numbers, low-temperature operability issues, injector deposits, etc.”

Power Service Diesel Kleen +Cetane Boost is designed to be used as a year-round performance enhancer. The company said it can clean dirty injectors, prevent injector sticking, smooth rough-running diesel engines, and improve fuel economy.

Diesel Fuel Supplement +Cetane Boost is recommended for use in winter months when temperatures drop below 30 degrees Fahrenheit. It is a winterizer/anti-gel used to prevent fuel gelling and keep fuel filters from plugging with ice and wax.

“Cummins is in a unique position in that we design not only the engine, but also the turbochargers, fuel system, and aftertreatment systems, which enables us to fully leverage the Power Service diesel fuel additive technologies,” said England.
