Question from an online Engine Builder reader in the Czech Republic:
"I just read your article on www.enginebuildermag.com about ZDDP. It was very interesting. I have question: do you think it's good idea to add ZDDP (1-3 %) to the Diesel Winter Additive which will be added in ration 1:1000 to the diesel fuel?
Or do you know some better lubricant? For example some fatty acids or its esters/ethoxylated amines or monoglycerides…"
