Additives

I was just wondering if there were any suggestions about fuel and oil additives for the Powerstroke. I'm a firm believer in Slick-50 for my gassers but I'm not sure how it'll do in a Powerstroke. As for fuel additives, I've tried "Dieselkleen" but it seems to make my performance and MPG worse. Any suggestions?

Re: Additives

I like Howe's the best. Power Service is ok but besides lubrication I haven't seen any other benefits. As for oil you will learn that Rev-X is well liked by those that use it. I haven't tried it yet but getting closer to trying it.

Re: Additives

Stanadyne fuel treatment is about the best thing you can get for the 6.0. Ive heard that Rev-X is very effective for the oil treatment. You dont want to add anything to the engine that uses PTFE because it will wipe out your injectors. Also make sure you use the correct oils and Yellow antifreeze.

Is the yellow antifreeze really important? When I did my EGR delete I used the all makes all models stuff. Bad idea?

Re: Additives

The usual anti-freeze has long life additives they plug your system.
Look into the fluid section on here you find everything you need.

It has to be the correct Motorcraft antifreeze. The regular stuff will cause cavitation and eat a hole the the cylinder lining.

Re: Additives

I used the Cetane Booster from Ford. They know these engines better than anyone, and it is made specifically for Powerstrokes. And it's cheaper than the Power Service stuff I used to use.
