Diesel for my 2007, 6.0 diesel

Newbie here... but learning...
I've been told to run only usld diesel in my 2007, 6.0 diesel.
I've been told to run only #2 diesel in it.
I've been told to run anything that is diesel and don't worry about it... only don't run off the road stuff. The off the road stuff, I understand, having worked with farmers a lot in my life.

Also, I have been told to always put diesel additive in my tank.
So, what's the truth of the matter?
Thanks for your help.

First off. Welcome to the addiction.
and well....Any #2 you find is going to be ulsd, even the off-road stuff is mostly ulsd, just dyed. And as far as the additive, it is useful on the 6.0 especially to help keep the injectors lubed good, the additive keeps them a little cleaner. I use diesel kleen, currently grey bottle, but will be in the white bottle early next month. I like it, dont really notice any performance gains, but a little on the mpg. Someone that know a lot more will chime in shortly.

Anything that is considered diesel will run in your 6.0 -- Offroad included, although its illegal to run for road use for tax purposes.

I'm with them. I also run diesel kleen, white bottle for the anti-gel during winter and grey during the summer. White bottle goes in on the next fill up. Been hosed by gelled fuel once, don't want it to happen again. I looked at your location and depending upon where your 5'er is sitting you may want to look at the white diesel kleen. My fiver is here in SC but even down here it can occasionaly get cold enough to be an issue!

I am only 4 days into being a Powerstroke owner. I have been big block, small block, and Y block Ford powered.

However from the few hours I spent digging, it looks like this diesel keen is a good thing to run.

I just filled up and used a grey bottle. White is next here in Pittsburgh.

You will notice more out of ashless two stroke oil tcw. Avalible at wally world. It will actually lube the injectors and quiet down the engine a little bit. (Injectors) the diesel kleen is a great product and I used to use it. After doing a lot of reading on this and other forums and then trying it I now occasionally use it as a fuel system cleaner only.

Will the two stroke oil help with the anti gel in the cold? I hear it is GREAT for keeping the injectors lubed.

Diesel fuel unless your in a extreme cold should not gel. But the 2 stroke oil will do nothing for gelling. Another tip to remember is that biofuels tend to gel a lot easier that dino diesel.
