cetane booster?

My local dealer says to use 4oz. of the motorcraft cetane booster every time I fuel up. How important is this?

I use about 8 oz of diesel kleen ever time I fill up. I see about a mpg more with the additive than without it.

if you are in the cold you really need to be using some sort of cetane booster. Your injection pump will love ya for it.

I use 19 oz of Power Service when I fill up my truck if its slam azz empty. I usually try to fill up when I get to half a tank and then I only add 9.5 oz. My EGT's are a little higher, I have to use more throttle, and a tank doesnt last as long if I dont use Power Service. When I do put it in the throttle response is better and the engine is quieter. By the way I use the white bottle and I live in Florida but trying to find the gray bottle is very hard around here. I dont know if its necessary but the benefits are worth it IMHO

We sell alot of the Stanadyne. We also carry a new product called Flashlude, its from Australia. I tried a couple tanks, and it seems the same as most anything else.

For years we have used a product called MT-10 Oil treatment in our race engines. Our Blackstone reports have always come back outstanding. They now have a Fuel addative called FT-10. We have been running that lately. The power seems the same, but cold weather starts seem easier, and I swear a tank of fuel goes a little further. They tell you to run 4 oz. for every 5 gallons for the first 2 tanks. Then go to 2 oz. for every 5 gallons after that. When I fill it up tomorrow I will be on my first cycle at 2 oz. per 5 gallons. I'm going to start tracking milage.

Check out there site. MPC Lubricants Incorporated | MT-10 Metal Treatment™ | Specialty Lubrication Manufacturing Company

In the oil treatment, they treat the metal not the oil. There is some of there oil treatment in the fuel treatment. They claim it will greatly help with the Low Sulfer Fuel, and prolong the life of your injectors.

This would be a link to the fuel treatment info.

Info from Ford regarding my 1999 F350 Superduty 7.3 L, PSD:
"Do not add aftermarket cetane, improver additives to Diesel Fuel. Damage to the fuel injection system may result.

What do you make of that?
