No it won't hurt the sensors and in fact it would probably help clean them. In the old days we'd ad a little kerosene to clean up the diesels. The Power Serve is safe for the modern diesels.

I give all of my diesels (all 5) a bath in the stuff year around.

PowerServe is the only diesel treatment approved by Cummins, at least it was in 2015 when I bought my RAM.

Just a note..
With unknown "blends" of winterized diesel..USE an anti gel !!!
AND as per the directions on the bottles (all brands) DOUBLE [if not a bit more of] the Power Service/Howes/whatever dosages that are recommended.......[Dealing with the Government Mandated Bio fuel is a crapshoot as to when or how hard the fuel will gel]
ALSO! run your diesel genset and AquaHot/Oasis for an hour of so .. to insure that their fuel is also fully treated...
50 years of trucking..and Yes, I have gelled up a time or two dozen..

We add the power service winter additive every fillup from Oct until end of March. We use the normal power service from March to Oct. I pour in about 1oz per 3 gallons of diesel.

I use the power service mainly because it supplies lubrication for the injector pump that was lost when going to low sulfur diesel. Also, it increases the cet, cleans the injectors and the winter blend add winterizer to the fuel.

My Aqua Hot burns fuel with Power Service in it all the time.

Armey7 if you are headed out this weekend in Ohio. Please make sure you run the block heater for 12plus hours before starting the motor. Most likly you have 15/40 motor oil. That motor oil will not be providing much lubercaion for the first 1/2 hour or so without it being warm. If you are going to do a trip in the north. You might want to consider changing the oil to a winter blend.

Also, you might consider blocking 3/4 of the radiator vent. You most likly will not get any heat out in zero weather without it blocked.

I added my power service anti gel after I got to my winter camping location and haven’t had any issues with my AquaHot fuel wise. Other than having to add fuel to keep tank full. Figured I needed the anti gel more for the AquaHot than if I was driving.

Just my experience this winter.

We are in the lower mainland of British Columbia so haven’t experienced much weather below 30F. Will in the next week according to forecast but still better than Ohio from the sounds of it.
