stanadyne additive???

Can't find this additive for the life of me. Checked all the parts stores around. Asked some of them, they weren't much help though. Do they only sell this stuff in....? Or does anybody suggest anything else, not Lucas though. I read in a earlier thread about how much some of you guys like this stuff.

How often do you guys that run it put it in your tank? Every time? Once in a while? I got some with my Truck but I've not used it yet.

I run n additive in every tank as well. Kinda have to here. Its gets to be pretty cold at times. I was running Stanadyne Performance for a while and just switched to opti-lube xpd, seems to be good stuff

I put Stanadyne Performance formula every tank back when my truck was new to try and help keep the EGR clean, and add a little extra lubricity. When ULSD came out I switched to PowerService grey bottle since it is easier to find and it supposedly does better at lubricity. Now I run biodiesel blends (B5 to B15 or so) and just use PS white bottle for antigel as needed. No additives needed otherwise with the bio blends.

(I should note that I have a 6.0 and not a 7.3.)

That stuff is great. They put alot into there product to make it the best.

I run it in my truck in every tank in the winter for anti gel. Then every few tanks in the summer to help lube the injectors etc.

DiscountPowerParts.com sells it plus another additive called FT-10. Lots of guys on here are running the FT-10 now. I wouldnt run anything else, try it once.
