Premium Diesel Fuel

Premium Diesel Fuel is regular diesel fuel that contains specific additives in the appropriate amounts that improve and optimize the performance of the fuel.   While different gasoline can be compared by octane ratings there are no established standards to compare Premium Diesel Fuels from different sources.  Nor are their clear cut definitions of what additional chemistries are required to achieve true 'Premium' status beyond the inclusion of at least two chemical upgrades (typically detergency and lubricity agents.)

Regularly utilized improvements include:
  • Detergency
  • Lubricity
  • Cetane 
  • Anti-rust/corrosion Inhibitor
  • Stabilizer Chemistry
  • Cold Flow Improver
  • Pour Point Reducer
  • Anti-static (over and above what is utilized in the refining process)
