Additives in new Diesel? Upper cylinder lubrication choices?

OK, we have the light kerosene looking diesel here to, BP sort of stuff, kind of either clear light blue or clear light green.... I am assuming this is the ULSD.

Now the Veggie Diesel Man Clay, commented on putting about 8 oz per tank of veggie juice Wesson Oil in per tank.. OK, I can do that... What other kind of oil would be better??? I am thinking in terms of Motor oil, wouldn't that lube the top end better than veggie oil????

No problem on the mixing, pour it in first, and use a high volume delivery, She's mixed...

OR IS THE NEW 6.0 BUILT TO COMPENSATE FOR THAT DIESEL????

Good question, Ranger. Surely we did not buy late-model diesels that have to have fuel additives to handle ULSD At least, let's HOPE not

I may have to pull out the ol' manual and see what it says. Maybe someone will chime in.....................................

I would also like to know

The new ULSD fuel worries me also. I have an older truck (95 7.3) and I have heard about all the stories, but no real facts. I think we are going to have to wait and see the casuality rate on the old engines. This whole deal is just like the unlead gas thing that happend in the 70's. I just hope to stay on top of it and do what needs to be done soon enough.

Lots of our customers are using the Stanadyen Lubricity formula as a safety factor, sales have just zoomed up on it. Plus Stanadyne is OEM approved too, unlike any others I know of etc.

the easiest additive to use is Biodiesel. no math involved, the pump mixes it for you

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

Hey Guys,
I just got off the phone with the main Refiners Technical Department for CalTex Diesel, and he claims it is the same for BP Diesel, the two largest Refiners... They claim this is an Urban Myth, and they put a Lubricity Agent in the diesel before it leaves the Refinery ??????????????? They claim the ULSD here has the same upper cylinder Lubrication values as the old Diesel....

So Guys, are they the dancing :nono: Or is this indeed an Urban Myth????????????

What say Ye of the great PSD Round Table!!!! Regards, Knight Ranger
