white bottle is for winter and works great. I run #2 diesel year around and run this stuff in winter and been down to 50 below and no gelling. Grey bottle just cleans injectors and puts lubrication in fuel so does white bottle and cetane will make your truck start quicker and better.

I think the general consensus is that it is an OK product. Certainly not the best. I use it because it is very available. The grey is the best stuff but the white is for cold weather and keeping the fuel flowing. It prevents gelling in cold weather caused by wax and stuff in the fuel.

You don't want to be Gellin! You know, like the dr Scholls commercial.

Well i thought it was funny.

Oh ya, and Cetane is a measure of ignition quality. Higher is better.

I am trying the FPPF Total Power. It is supposed to have everything (cetane, lubricity, injector cleaner, etc..)... I have only found one supplier in my area.

Diesel Fuel Additives - Stanadyne is supposed to be one of the better ones but it is a little hard to find for me.
