Is there a product like StaBil for gasoline for use when storing diesel fuel? Given the falling prices I thought I might store 55 gallons or so...

I have used Stanadyne diesel fuel additives for years in diesel fuel that I store for up to 6 months. In the winter I use Performance Formula and in the summer I use Performance Formula Jr which is much cheaper.

CasitaRick54,

 

From what I have read, diesel doesn't store well, can grow stuff plus the cost of additive, a drum or tank to store it and a pump to get it out and the price drops (that I know won't last), why?
