I am running it and i thin it has caused a decrease in my milage - 3 mpg decrease.
Something definately has cause the decrease and I think its the fuel.

Yep, get on the vegi! It's free and it's being hauled away for free. You could be hauling it away. My problem is, I"m collecting more than i am burning so over the holliday weekend coming up, i'm trying to figure out some where to go on a road trip to burn about 100 gallons of this stuff! It's pilling up in my garage! I've got 300 gallons in the garage and I"m pickin up 40 more tomorrow! DAMIT! The free fuel is over taking all my storage space!
LOL....I just bought a half tank of diesel tomight (3.20/gal) and that should last me a month or better using the vegi system.

The new issue of Diesel Power magazine has a couple great articles about the new ultra low sulfer fuel and the future of emissions on diesels. They are saying the new fuel does decrease fuel milage. How that helps is beyond me? It is very disturbing to see what might happen to our beloved pass time when they start putting so much junk in the engine bays that you don't even have room for any mods!

new diesel

Power Kleen makes a good additive for the low sulfur diesel. I've heard that if you don't use an additive you could potentialy damage the life of the engine. When I use the additive, I seem to be able to receover some of the gas mileage.

Nice...really nice...they screw w/ our fuel so it burns cleaner..hence less glorious black smoke...AND to top it off we are getting less mpg. And this is advancing things...how again? Man, 1/2 the reason I went diesel is for the better mileage!! this sux.
