Soltron Diesel Additive
When we had the survey and sea trial for the boat we are buying the Surveyor recommended that we use Soltron additive to our fuel, to keep it and the engine happy. Said it is what he used and he thought it was great. Went on to say that it was not critical to be accurate measuring it, too much wouldn't hurt anything.
The boat in question is 8 years old and appears to have been well maintained although not by the owner, he hired out everything near as I can tell. The 38 hp Yanmar diesel engine starts quick, even in cold weather and in the time we motored we had no issues.
I was just wondering if anyone had a first hand experience with Soltron either positive or negative.
