Diesel Kleen seems to get good reviews. Alot of people buy additives at the dealer. I'm sure "stroketechintraining" will chime in here...

Stanadyne (Performance Formula) here. has helped mileage, cold starting, and maybe even a tad quieter. this ultra low sulfur is going to hurt the guys that don't use an additive in their older engines.

I've also been using the Stanadyne performance formula, that's what my mechanic recommended.

I've been using Power Services Diesel Kleen in the white container, however I have 1/2 gallon of new reformulated Stanadyne Performance to try out once I run out of Diesel Kleen.

I'll also comment, the company I work for (Machine shop) has a 2000 F550 with a 16 foot (I think?) hydraulic dump bed with removeable sides for delivering skids of decently heavy parts to customers and various other things. There is a trucking supply shop across the street that sells this year round fuel additive in a real small bottle (less than 6 ounces I'd guess), it says 1 bottle treats 240 gallons or something real close. I'm not really sure how this small bottle can treat such a large amount of fuel as Diesel Kleen and Stanadyne Performance has much larger capacity containers for the same amount of treatment.

I don't think it's too expensive. I'll see if I can write the name of it down tomorrow if I can remember and see if any of you guys have heard of it. My companies truck driver uses it and says it works good.
