Fuel Additives

Do you run additives or staight diesel? When I bought my truck I was warned about running the new ULSD as it would kill my fuel system because there isn't enough lube in it. I was using FlashLube at first but when I went to Cali I couldn't find it so I started using Diesel Kleen is what I think it was called. I don't get as good of mileage with Diesel Kleen. So I was wondering what everyone else uses.

Re: Fuel Additives

Here is what you need to do. Look at the picture below and look up the item you are using. The idea here is to use a product with an HFRR rating of 520 or lower. The higher the number, the less it lubricates. Both Howes and diesel kleen fail to add lubrication to the fuel. I use super tech 2 stroke oil have have seen great results along with a lot of others.

Re: Fuel Additives

I read the thread on the 2 stroke oil and I am going to have to give that a try when I get back to my truck. I am on vacation right now

Re: Fuel Additives

Here is the link to the full report of the chart that Mattymx posted.

FWIW, I use Schaeffer's dieseltreat - with the added lubricity most that use it have seen a 1-2 mpg increase.


Beware if using the 2 cycle oil on 2007+ newer engines running a DPF. It icreases the sulfur content and could clog the DPF early.
