DIESEL FUEL ADDITIVE????

Have 04 Excursion with 6.0 Powerstroke. Own about 5 months and have been using Ford's fuel additive. Is there something better to use?

If we’re talking about the same thing; I mix 1 gallon of pure, certified, soy based biodiesel in with 44 gallons of regular mineral diesel. [My tank holds 44 gallons] You can still use other blends to get this ratio such as B20 – just pump 5 gallons of that to equal one gallon of pure biodiesel. This ratio is well below the Ford recommended limit of B5 concentration. Now this just really has to do with increasing the lubricity of the fuel to help protect the internal wear of the fuel system, but if your talking about something to help clean out your fuel system, say after its been contaminated or something, I haven’t really experienced a situation like that. Hope this helps a little. Run a search for Tank’s Library. There is a wealth of information in there.

i dont know how many times we must state this. powerservice products is the only way to go. the diesel kleen is not anti gel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
it is only for summer only, it will freeze. use the white anti gel bottle in the winter to prevent gelling, the red 911 bottles are for when your already froze. i use the white bottle and mine started at -14 this morning. it cranked over and started so smooth, you wouldnt think it was that cold out, so it does work

Just for the record Ford doesn't recommend Diesel Kleen for the 6.0 liter and the 6.4 liter diesels they recommend there own diesel additive which I switched to last fall and have seen a definite difference.
Diesel kleen is for the 7.3 and older diesel engines. Do what you want but I would think ford should know what is best for their engines and I am going to do what ford says as I still have warranty left on my truck and am not taking any chances on them telling me I used the wrong additive.

Where does one get the Ford additive? And what is it called, part number? Thanks.
