Oh I don't know about snake oil. The concept is simple and there are a variety of chemicals which will get you to the same end result. As a rep from powerservice once told me. Not all additives react to the same extent with all types of diesel fuel. I do know that you want to avoid catane boosters which use certain types of alcohols. I can't remember which other than ethanol being one. It's a shame we didn't adopt euro levels or cetane with the switch to ULSD. God only know the politics of that decision
