yes, it's safe to use...an additive wouldn't hurt anything and the right additive will help your injectors live a longer life.

No, they can't but you really DO NOT want to do this.

ulsd is ok

you'll be fine running it in your truck. Supposedly distributors are putting some sort of lubricant additive in the fuel already to compensate for the lack of sulfur. I've had ulsd around here for close to 6 months and haven't had any problems. I do however add diesel kleen most of the time just for my own piece of mind. IMO its never a bad thing to use some additive. As far as tranny fluid in your tank, I would advise you against it. Causes more problems than it cures from what I've heard on this site. Hope this helps you out some, we'll give it a bump and see if anybody else has an opinion for you, and welcome to the site!

Yeah, definately no tranny fluid in the tank....fuel lube is designed to work in the fuel system. tranny fluid may, but isnt meant for it.....

Check out Powerservice and K-100 products.....both companies have good products and websites detailing concerns about ULSD.

The fuel should work fine. The only problems I've heard of so far (in PSD's) is a slight loss in MPG and issues with the fuel filter seal, which is designed to swell and seal from the sulfer, which the fuel is now practically without.

Good luck....and fill up before the 1st!
