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.

Stanadyne Performance Formula worked well for me when I used it (stopped using it simply due to fuel costs). Cheers!

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