I feel propane is ok as long as too much isn't used. If larger amounts are injected, then the fire can get 'too hot'. I think that is what burns the engine down. Just like simply adding too much diesel. . . .

All of this chemistry is a deeply involved subject. Makes my head hurt just thinking about all of it that I know nothing about. Suffice to say, there is a lot to it. Usually a lot more than we realize.

I don't know where your getting your info, but you may be thinking of Alcohol, and only 1 product of power service contains it called 911. Alcohol is the "bad" additive in any product. I have been running power service for a long time, and love it. Now that i sell it, and know the "behind the scenes" part of it thier testing is far superior than that of any other product out there. They actually use walmart trucking as thier test bed. I am a full believer in research and like to know what i'm paying for, not just cause its cool or someone told someone who told someone that its the best. Do the research yourself, in this economy $$$ matters..

Go here Power Service Products, diesel fuel additives, prevent gelling, clean injectors, disperse water, boost cetane, reduce emissions, improve fuel economy

Here's a link to the MSDS for Diesel Kleen:

http://dev.powerservice.com/msds/pdf/dfs140_msds.pdf

Mostly petroleum distillates with alot of the "enes"-type toxins. Pretty much hazardous solvents and chemicals. I wouldn't go near the stuff, much less put it in my fuel tank.

Napthalene is about the worst stuff in diesel and it's only really dangerous when inhaled for extended periods of time:

Suffice it to say, I like to know what's in the stuff I use, whether I burn it in an engine or bathe in it. It helps to really understand what it does alot better than the marketing swill oil companies and people like the makers of PS would have you believe.

Use it all you like, different strokes for different folks. I'm just saying it's a crap product, and not because of anything somebody "said." Like YOU said on here.

Maybe some people just aren't smart enough to be all that concerned about it.

I don't know if PS is good or bad and won't even get into that myself but just so everybody reading this is aware. The MSDS sheet isn't a complete list of ingredients in any product. It only contains a list of ingredients that the government has deemed as potentially harmful or toxic to the environment and how to treat exposure to or hazardous cleanup of those ingredients.

I've seen many times when guy's think they can brew they're own home brew batch based off what's listed on these sheets.

Below is a few things found in Power Service but noticed that have made big changes to there MSDS thus hiding info of whats in there product:

Vinyl acetate: Is an industrial chemical that is produced in large amounts in the United States. It is a clear, colorless liquid with a sweet, fruity smell. It is very flammable and may be ignited by heat, sparks, or flames.

Vinyl acetate is used to make other industrial chemicals. These chemicals are used mainly to make glues for the packaging and building industries. They are also used to make paints, textiles, and paper.

Ethylbenzene: The greatest use — more than 99 percent — of ethylbenzene is to make styrene, another organic liquid used as a building block for many plastics. It is also used as a solvent for coatings, and in the making of rubber and plastic wrap.

Napthalene: Naphthalene's most familiar use is as a household fumigant, such as in mothballs.

Naphtha: A fast drying solvent replaces paint thinners to accelerate drying time of oil-based paints, enamel and varnish.

Maybe good cleaning agent, but I wouldn't want it running through my pumps and injectors.
