Increase Cetane Number Up to 7 Points to Improve Diesel Engine Performance, Power & Fuel Economy
Improves Combustion in All Diesel Engines
AMSOIL Cetane Boost Diesel Fuel Additive (Product Code: ACB) increases cetane up to seven points, improving diesel fuel quality that benefits all diesel engines, especially high-performance designs. It improves combustion efficiency for increased diesel power and smoother, quieter diesel operation.
AMSOIL Cetane Boost Diesel Fuel Additive improves diesel fuel economy, provides easier starts, and reduces smoke and emissions, making diesel operation more pleasant. It is excellent for use with ultra-low-sulfur diesel fuel (ULSD) and is compatible with biodiesel and all types of exhaust emission systems, including diesel particulate filters (DPFs).
Unlike all-in-one fuel additives that may sacrifice performance in specific areas in the name of convenience, AMSOIL Cetane Boost makes no sacrifices; it is purpose-built for diesel owners who demand maximum results.

Increases Diesel Cetane Up to 7 Points
AMSOIL Cetane Boost Diesel Fuel Additive is an ashless, alcohol-free additive that raises the cetane number of diesel fuel up to seven points for increased horsepower, improved fuel economy, easier starts and smooth idling in all diesel engines. Diesel engines operate best with cetane values of 50 or higher. Most diesel fuel sold in North America has a cetane value of 40 to 45.
What is Cetane Number?
Cetane number is the measure of a diesel fuel’s ignition quality. Too long an ignition delay at high engine loads leads to an excessively rapid increase in pressure within the cylinder before combustion, which in turn leads to diesel knock, or rough operation, especially on cold starts.
The fuel cetane enhancers in AMSOIL Cetane Boost Diesel Fuel Additive reduce ignition delay, solving diesel starting problems and drivability problems associated with low cetane number diesel fuels. Proper cylinder pressure rise rate during the combustion cycle is maintained, reducing diesel knock.
Improves Diesel Combustion For Increased Diesel Power and Performance, Quieter Operation
As demonstrated on the chart below, AMSOIL Cetane Boost Diesel Fuel Additive improves the spontaneous auto-ignition point of diesel fuel, which shortens ignition lag time. With AMSOIL Cetane Boost, diesel fuel ignites earlier in the cycle for more complete combustion, increasing diesel power and performance. It controls rapid pressure rise within the cylinder, providing smoother, quieter operation.
Reduces Diesel Emissions and Smoke
With AMSOIL Cetane Boost Diesel Fuel Additive, fuel burns more completely, reducing carbon monoxide and hydrocarbon emissions. It reduces emissions, white diesel smoke and odors, reducing environmental impact.
Improves Diesel Cold-Weather Starting
AMSOIL Cetane Boost Diesel Fuel Additive improves cold-weather starting and reduces misfiring during warm-up and at low temperatures. This reduces engine wear and helps prevent cracked pistons and rings, improving reliability and reducing maintenance costs. AMSOIL Cetane Boost reduces cranking time to start, extending battery and starter life.
Improves Diesel Fuel Economy, Reduces Maintenance Costs
AMSOIL Cetane Boost Diesel Fuel Additive increases fuel economy, improves reliability and decreases engine wear, reducing maintenance costs.
AMSOIL Cetane Boost Diesel Fuel Additive (ACB) is recommended for use in all types of heavy- and light-duty, on- or off-road and marine diesel engines. Best performance is achieved when used with every new tank of fuel. It is excellent for use with ultra-low-sulfur diesel fuel (ULSD). It is compatible with biodiesel and all types of exhaust emission systems, including diesel particulate filters (DPFs). (High concentrations of biodiesel can decrease the benefits of AMSOIL Cetane Boost.) It is alcohol-free for seal and component compatibility.
Fuel Treatment Rate
One 16-ounce can of AMSOIL Cetane Boost treats up to 160 gallons of diesel fuel, depending on the desired results. Using the fuel mix ratio in the chart below, add the appropriate amount of AMSOIL Cetane Boost before filling the tank.
- For best results with up to a seven point cetane increase, add one ounce per five gallons of diesel fuel (one bottle to 80 gallons fuel)
- For up to a three point cetane increase, add one ounce per 10 gallons of diesel fuel (one bottle to 160 gallons fuel)
AMSOIL Cetane Boost Diesel Fuel Additive is excellent for use with AMSOIL Diesel Injector Clean and AMSOIL Cold Flow Diesel Anti-Gel Fuel Additive with Deicer. (Or, consider AMSOIL Diesel Injector Clean + Cold Flow, which combines both diesel fuel additives in one convenient package — the excellent anti-gelling properties of AMSOIL Diesel Cold Flow with the superior detergency of AMSOIL Diesel Injector Clean.)
