Rislone has been around for many years. I think the auto parts stores are the best place to look. Napa, Bumper to Bumper etc. We used to use Marvel Mystery Oil on the drilling rigs to remove water from air systems, and it is what I have been using in my engines. Now that I'm supervising on service rigs I see the crews using diesel fuel conditioner and all say it works very well in air systems in cold weather. It stands to reason as it does break up water droplets in diesel fuel. I think if you remove the methanol as best you can and add some type of light oil to coat the internals your engines will last longer. Seems to be a lot of guys who do nothing and get away with it.
What goes up.

Gary, have you had any glow plug problems with the Rislone?
MAAC 50249

Planes, Pedals, and Motorcycles! (In that order!)

I stopped being politically correct when I found out that some people were offended by it.
