Eddie! I use power service products simply because they're readily available at every walmart and truck stop you come along. There are lots of good brands out there. Lucas, Stanadyne, motorcraft even makes there own additive that's pretty good. I think as long as you go with a brand name product, and there's more than I've listed here, you'll be fine. Its all about preference. But I would stay away from things you hear about like motor oil, tranny fluid, or any other "homemade" concoction out there. Our 6.0's especially aren't designed for anything like that. I've heard that some of the old IDI diesels can run on just about anything, but the technology in those trucks is ancient so to speak. There's a tech on this site with a late 80's IDI truck that burns nothing but used tranny fluid. Talk about versatile I guess...
