First off, welcome to the ORG. Second, asking which additive is "best" is kind of a loaded question. I personally use Marvel Mystery Oil. A good buddy of mine, uses 2 cycle (ashless) in his fuel. Another friend just adds Diesel Kleen.

My advice, would be to get a little bit of each additive that you're looking at. (small container) Add one to one tank, and add a different one to the other tank, and see if you get a difference between the two. You could do/ try this as many times as you like, until you find an additive that you and your truck like and are happy with. (obviously consider price of additive, and amount of additive to be added)

Best of luck.

Do you think that would help with a 6.0?
