I agree coolant conditioner isn't snake oil. I also don't see how a 3 cyl engine is safe from cavitation.

Plain and simple... they're not. I have a 3 cylinder 201 block around here somewhere that cavitated. They all need conditioner. I use FG DCA4.

It's not snake oil.

Back in the day we had 3 diesel powered firewater pumps at out plant.

Two of them developed severe damage from not being treated.

After rebuilds they were fitted with coolant filters with protection built in as well as a liquid that was added to the coolant. We were also to test the coolant mix once a month to monitor it's status.

At that time I was told this problem was peculiar to stationery diesels. Sounds like Mustang Equipment was wrong.

Now you've got me wondering about my 2 cylinder Kubota.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I don't think the 3 cylinder engines are safe from it. I know I've read of at least a few folks who had to have theirs sleeved because of it. I just think that the cylinder walls might be a little thicker than they were on the earlier 4 cylinders, so it might take longer for the damage to be noticed, plus they're newer so they haven't had as many years/hours of being worked hard on average as most of the earlier 4 cylinders have had, so again the damage hasn't caused as many leaks .... yet.
