Diesel Kleen is a good one.
there is a write up on here somewhere but that is all i can rember about it.
i think it is a Power Service product and its the only "additive" i still use.
I do run 2 cycle but as for the additives thats it for me.

I would only ever recommend Stanadyne Performance Formula. I've used it since 97 in many diesels. It really does work and keeps pumps clean. And the cold weather performance is superb. Makes diesel fuel heaters unnecessary.

Plus 1. This is what I use. I am very happy with it.
I did a similar Thread awhile back and got some pretty good info. But I think I am sticking with my proven DIESEL KLEEN, I use the gray bottle and get it at Auto Zone.
