Re: fuel conditioners

Power service(diesel kleen), amsoil, stanadyne, redline just to name few, just dont run anything stupid like Lucas or seafoam. When I lived out west I would use powerservice to boost the winter blend diesel, mainly cause you can biy it anywhere.

Re: fuel conditioners

I run Amsoil diesel concentrate in the summer and diesel concentrate with cold flow improver in the winter. They just changed all the names of their fuel conditioners so i'm not sure what its called now. I find however if I don't add it to a tank of fuel now I get a little bit of grey smoke on start up. Not sure why and I'm not trying to be "that guy" as I run amsoil in a lot of other things I own with no issues.

Can you share your opinion on the above? I have heard good things about both those products and have used them once or twice. Just added, Lucas to my 94 IDI 7.3.

You have got my curiosity.

Anybody else have a comment or opinion?

Re: fuel conditioners

Well they are a so called dual use product, for gas and diesel, and those are sketchy to me, Lucas claims to boost octane but doesn't boost cetane levels so that's not beneficial. Both claim to clean injectors, and on a tiny gas engine injector but on a diesel injector, particularly a 7.3 injector I don't see how that little bit of product is gonna help in any way to clean them if you need it. I only run a fuel conditioner to boost cetane levels since most places run a low cetane rating. Not to mention im pretty sure Lucas is an alcohol based product, which has always been a no no with diesels all my life. Now seafoam os more of a carbon cleaner, but its really harsh on seals and such, I used it on some gas engines and while it takes alot of product it does work, it also ate threw a couple of head gaskets on a truck of mine and I have no urge to have that happen on my 7.3, now remember this is personal onion.
