Post Subject: Fuel Additives

Hello Tony Happy New Year,prior to this recent spell of cold weather I topped up my diesel tank on our narrowboat and I also added one of the fuel additives (fuel set )as I usually do each year,however I have had Webasto central heating fitted earlier in the year and I wondered if the Webasto unit would be adversly affected by the fuel additive.(the central heating does not have a seperate fuel tank).Thanks Jeff Mac

Dear Jeff, It seems manufacturers of this type of heating system have a habit of blaming anything other than shortcomings in their design of marine use even though I can see absolutely no foreseeable problem as long as you have been using the additive for a fair period time it would not surprise me if/when a problem cropped up there was not an attempt to blame the additive. (Aren't I cynical!). If you had only just started using the additive I could foresee problems caused by the amount of emulsified water in the fuel. I trust you get my drift on this question but I dare not give you an unequivocal yes or no. Tony Brooks
