Fuel additives

Not finding much for the 7.3 crowd. Lots of info if you have a 6.0 or 6.7. any insight? Ive heard everything from ATF to a cap full of stroke oil in each tank. I live in MN and have the lovely bio blen in EVERYTHING. Looking to protect my inj/pumps.

I just add howes diesel treatment to every full tank (about 4-6 oz), other than that I find the bigger fuel stations that tend to stay busy

Bio Blends should have everything you would need with no additional treatment needed except for maybe cold weather keeping it from gelling. The goal of most additives would be for adding lubricity due to the ultra low sulphur mandated fuel. Using bio blend negates having to add lubricity. As far as cold weather gelling I can't speak to, I live in a warm; climate and rarely dips below freezing.

It dips down here in the bay area. We actually get thin ice on top of puddles a few times every winter!m

I use power service and i think it helps alot. Less smoke on cold starts and seems to idle smoother.
