Fuel Additive/cleaner ??

Im about to take drive from NC to NY and back to NC in a couple weeks and wanted to see if there is anything I can add to my fuel to give the system a good cleaning. I might be pulling a small enclosed trailer (one from like uhaul of something similar). I liked to add SeaFoam to my othere cars before long road trips to help clean injectors and the system since I would runn though a few tanks of gas.

Any good products for Diesels in this department ?

2x Diesel Kleen with every tank. It's winter-ish so buy the white bottle. It's a lot cheaper by the gallon.

I didn't think it ever got winter-ish in L.A.

Hahahaha... Yeah, anything under 50 here on the NC coast is cold for me.

It looks like I can get Diesel Kleen pretty much anywhere.

Have you guys seen this write up?

No, I have not seen this before. Quite informative. I wonder what my set-up is doing as our fuel here is a minimum B10 and I'm using Diesel Kleen. Looks like I should find some of the #4 and see what happens.

That is what I am wondering. I was going to plan on looking for Love's Truck Stops to try the B5 on the drive.

I think I might try to Diesel Kleen since it is so easily found in stores unlike most on that list.
