Fuel Additives: yes or no?

with my 5.9 dodge I used to run Power Service fuel additive all the time. What about with the Ford 6.0? yes or no

I run the Power Service (grey bottle) almost every fill up, I personally notice a difference in the way it runs and somewhat better economy!

I run Wally world ashless tw3 two stroke oil. 1qt to a tank. Better lubrication and less engine noise. A lot of people run it some in 6.0 applications 70,000+k and a lot of the dodge guys do it.

Yes! but no.... It all depends on what you choose.

Stanadine, If you visit their web site they tell you the differences between the diff selections. Lucas. Power services. Seafoam, don't go too crazy with seafoam.


I am comfortable with all of these in my 6-O. I use Lucas often. Especially when I change my fuel filters. Changing them creates allot of air in the lines. The lubricating Lucas eases the pain of the bubbles.


Seafoam is a miracle but there is limitation. If you put the recommended amount in the tank, your cool. If you go over your still cool. You can also put it in your oil just BEFORE YOU CHANGE YOUR ENG OIL. "Don't run it in a duration". Many ppl say don't, many say do. I say do BUT, its not necessary. But I still do. On the bottle it states how much to put in. I do half that, drive 2 miles, then change the oil. I let it sit for a couple hrs.

Stanadine.... enough said

Power services is great. I don't have much input. My father puts it in his delivery trucks cuz its cheep and effective.

we have run power service in almost every fill up since we got it. when we dont run it notice that we lose about a mile per gallon. we ran the white bottle in when it was cold and now we are running the gray bottle.

if you are just looking for everyday driver performance, get the standard RBP formula....

but if you are running high power, RBP has a high performance additive... their stuff is the best out there

i personally like the stanadyne performance formula at every fill up, ive noticed a good bit of difference in the way the truck runs, and its antigel, cetane boost, lubricity attitive all in one, i kinda like that cuz i dont have to switch when its cold. i used to run powerservice white bottle last winter when i fist got the truck but have since had a few guys at a injection service shop tell me to steer clear of the powerservice products because it contains isoprophyl alchahol which dries the fuel and isnt good on a fuel system and i believe them, im a diesel tech myself and have seen what poor fuel quality/dry fuel can do to fuel system components, especially newer close tolerance systems. this is just my opinion though im not tryin to start a war with anyone who likes powerservice or any other product. if you like it and believe in it go for it use it dont take my word for it.

The JR formula doesn't have winter. Performance has winter.
