I've been useing the motorcraft diesel additive. My friend that got it for me no longer works there. Closest dealer is 35 miles out the way. So what should I go to as an alternative?

Re: what diesel treatment?

Tator: You are probably better off doing a google search of your question and then just choosing 3 or 4 and try each... You will get many opinions... Kinda like opinions on Oil...

It's tough finding any real scientific proof of any diesel fuel addtive that actually does what it says... There is a huge market for this product... There are more and more companys jumping on the diesel fuel additive market... Because there is a massive profit to be made...

You will have to try a few and rely on your ears and seat of the pants feel...Everyones motor will react differently to any given diesel additive... No motor is the same nor reacts the same...

Try the most popular ones first... You can find them at any large chain store or truck stop... PowerService-Howes-->are probably the Most Popular... Many others are out there...

Many others you can buy online.... but you usually have to pay out the toosh for shipping...they offer free shipping if you buy $75 to $100 worth of product, which the average hard working fella can't afford...or just refuse to pay... Then some who really want your business and will ship for free... to get a long time customer...

If you have an older diesel? You might even think about TC-W3 2-stroke oil... Many members have reported good results...

Most online addtives are way expensive per qt or gallon once you add shipping into the mix... Is it worth it? I guess it all depends on your bank account and your mental aspect... I have read where some of the most popular diesel additives used in every tankfull over time causes excessive engine wear... It has been proven in many UOA...

Good Luck in your Quest!

Re: what diesel treatment?

Going to start using Stanadyne... Found a seller on E-bay that has free shipping along with a decent price for Pints... Will still continue to use FP60 from Lube Control... Will rotate between the 2...
