Prefered Fuel/Oil Additives?

Howdy.

I'm new.

There seem to be just as many opinions as there are options, with regard to fuel and oil additives that are best for a happy and healthy 6.0.

New to diesels. But I have plenty of diesel friends to argue about how wise or unwise I was to get the 6.0. None of them, however, can agree on fuel or oil additives that are good for the new truck.

I have read thousands of arguments about it.

What are some opinions here?

Truck info is in sig. My plans for it involve no towing, but lots of highway driving and camping trips with 6-8 people and all their crap piled inside. If that gives an idea of how it is driven.

I have a trip to FL for a week (from IN) coming up for a shakedown. Then I have all of March open for building. Then starting in April I will have several trips between IN and CO, just a couple of which will involve a trailer (Jeep, and our stuff) while we move out there.

TIA.

Im also new to my 6.0, as much as i have read about oil additives, i'd suggest rev x, but i havent used it so, im just passing the word. For fuel i have used Diesel Kleen +Cetane Boost, it added about 2 mpg each time i have used it, and at 7 bucks a bottle its not bad, ou should give it a try ive head people seen gains up to 4-5 mpg, me personally just 2. Got it at walmart lol!

I have been using opti lube for my fuel, summer and winter blends, doesn't get real cold for long stretches here but I'm just particular about it. Then used rev-x once. All above are very good!

Fred@PMM What size is the fuel additive? I see it has the two 4oz bottles of oil additive. If that is the 16oz, it definitely sounds like a steal for 79.95.
