I replied to a post where someone suggested using Metho in diesel.
It now seems to have vanished.
Here is a cut and paste of my reply.
DO NOT USE METHO IN DIESEL.
It will seperate out the diesel into 2 distinct layers.
It acts as a catalyst for the fuel to seperate, *esterfication???*
Get some diesel in a clear jar, add metho, and watch...
You can use metho in petrol to absorb water.
For diesel. Use Acetone in less than 1% concentration.
This will enable the water to be dissolved into the fuel and burnt, so there will not be a water/ diesel layer that can allow the alge to grow in.
This will not harm any seals (or dolphins either) or fuel pump lubricity etc at these levels, however it will aid in cleaning up the injectors etc.
its one of the main active ingredients in most diesel cleaners.
Please DO NOT USE METHO IN DIESEL
Ps, have used both chemtec, and the toyota additive, and can say that I am both pleased with the results they gave, and continue to use them in my vehicle and others.
