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.....

Sold 01 350 6" on 37's and mild mods, 00 X 4" on 35's, 02 f350 4" 35's molded from fan to drive shaft, ridin the 03 with nose conversion with 125k and counting upwards slowly.
Never had CNC on any of it, never will.
Take 3/4 of the info and recommendations on here with a grain of salt
