uls diesel fuel

How many have been running it and have you noticed any problems? If you are running if are you adding a fuel lube or not? I ask because its getting harder to find the old stuff around here.

I've been running it since last month when it became mandatory here. I have had the oring seals on my fuel filter start leaking. I don't know if it was related to the new fuel but, I never had them leak before. And it wasn't like I just changed the filter either.

This URL talks about leaks that are caused by the ULS Diesel. The nitrile membrane normally soaks up the LSD and swells to seal the pump. With the ULSD, the membrane shrinks and allows leaks. Is this what happened to you?

Too early to tell.....
Have always used PowerService in the winter, but now with the decreased
lubricity of ULSD, I plan on making up the DocB special medicine RX:

Summer: Silver PowerServive + HowesLube
Winter : White PowerService + HowesLube

Anyone know if there would be a problem putting both in the same bottle?

I have an '04 PSD 6.0 with AFE Magnum Force Stage 2, The Edge w/ Attitude, 4X4, Long Bed and a few other goodies. What brand of diesel treatment do you recommend for use with the ULSD?
