Which Anti-Gel additive is best for my diesel?

Hey everyone. Can someone tell me which Anti-Gel is the best for my 1999 Ford F250 SD? I was thinking about getting this one called Power Service ARCTIC EXPRESS® DIESEL FUEL ANTIGEL.
Once again, there are so many to choose from I don't know WHICH to choose lol. Thanks!

Re: Which Anti-Gel additive is best for my diesel?

Are you having a gel issue? Diesel clean white bottle is good during the winter every other tank or every tank its up to you. I use 2 stroke every tank and maybe once a month during winter I will throw a bottle of diesel clean in there instead of 2 stroke with a full tank I have never had gel issues. I heard from another thread that diesel fuel has anti gel additives in it now but I dont know for sure.

No not really. But I know I will if I don't use an Anti-Gel periodically. So it seems a lot of people are saying to use Power Service in the 'White' bottle, so I guess that's what I'll get. Thanks.

Try the 2 stroke from walmart I noticed a big difference in noise and she seems to run a bit better.
