Anyone Run Performance Fuel Additives??

Hi All,

Just wanted to get your guys opinions on what to use for a good fuel additive when I go to fuel up. I would like something that cleans the injectors, gas tank, and if possible gives more mpg even if its 1 mpg more....Any thoughts?

Thanks All!

I've used Opti-lube, Diesel Kleen, 2 stroke oil, Lucas (SUCKED) Ford additive and now I'm using Rev-X fuel additive. The only one I noticed any difference was the 2 stroke oil, the truck ran smoother and was quieter at idle.

D-syl and Stanadyne are my favourites. Really really help with smoke when doing real cold starts, and quiets the little man with a hammer in my cylinders.

I have some diesel kleen becuade its the easiest to get but I didn't really notice much of a benefit from it

I've tried everything and Amsoil is my favorite. Not much on quieting the motor but has the biggest increase in MPG based on my hand calculations

I use dieselkleen and i got 1 mpg gain from 12.5-13.5 but i dont think the previous owner used any fuel additive so the injectors needed some cleaning.

I like the stanadyne , Autozone ( yuch , hate to admit i go in there but for the stanadyne reason alone ) has it for 7.99 a bottle , does two fill-ups. I usually buy 4 bottles , keeps me from being seen in their lot as often.....
