fuel additive

Ive been using PS Diesel Kleen in about every two to three tanks. but with winter time coming up, how often do you guys use additives and what kind of additives do you use? I do know my mileage has dropped a bit since the temps started getting colder.

I put additive in every fill up. I get big jugs of howes diesel treat and mix in 4oz of 2cy oil. Then add the mix to my tank like you would any other additive. I get a little better mileage and anti gelling from the howes, and my injectors run a bit smoother thanks to the 2cy oil.

If you are in a 'colder' climate, use the Diesel Kleen in the white bottle every tank. It will keep your fuel from gelling.

i use the white power service in the winter and the silver high performance bottle in the summer. every fill up. it seems to take away a little rattling volume and idles smoother i think. def worth it i broke it down and its like an extra $1 per fill up. def worth it to keep my truck on the road forever
