It is on page 35.

I worry about the butyl cellosolve in the FPPF Marine Diesel Fuel Treatment that I added to my diesel fuel tank before I had an o-ring failure. Dow Chemical says "Do not use Viton, neoprene, nitrile or natural rubber gaskets or seals." on page 4.

Of course, medicine or poison, it is all in the dose.
