Amsoil diesel fuel modifier

Has anyone used this stuff or have any opinions about it? A friend of mine gave me 3 bottles of it. It doesn't say it has any lubrication in it or cetane boosters. I'm thinking of running a bottle with some 2 stroke oil for lube.

Ive heard of it, and other people using it and everything ive heard about it is good. a buddy of mine uses it about every 1500 miles and claims to get a little better mpg when he does. i personally prefer to use power service diesel kleen every few fillups.

I used it with the cetane boost with good results but recently switched to the OptiLube diesel additive.

I just bought my truck about a month ago and it came with half a big bottle of opti-lube of which I have been using. When it runs out should I continue using (it was rated 2nd highest in the tests I have read) or switch to a 2 cycle oil additive with the fuel which was rated 7th I believe but one of the cheapest additives.

I like the Optilube since it increases cetane by 3 points where the 2-stroke does not do that.

I am thinking about using the Amsoil Cetane Boost with the OptiLube to get to an 8 or 9 point increase.

Since I only drive my truck a few days a week I do not use that much fuel so I do not mind buying the OptiLube.

I'd keep buying the Opti-Lube.



To the OP: I won't use Amsoil fuel additives anymore. (I will keep using their oil though) I used to use the diesel concentrate with cold flow improver. A LOT less smoke on cold starts, almost never smokes on a warm start since I made the switch. I really wish I had video to prove it. But I was honestly expecting for nothing to change.
