i don't know if this is considered to be an additive, i am running several gallons of Biodiesel on every fill up.

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

I use Fords Powerstroke addative. I think it's $7.95 a bottle from Ford and a bottle treats 125 gallons. With the new USLD I figure it cheap insurance.

I either run Diesel Kleen or Lucas Fuel Treatment in mine. I feel Lucas is a little better, and seems to quiet down the motor a little. Just my opinion and 2 cents!

Amsoil diesel fuel treatment

Diesel clean and Lucas are more readily in stores so either powerservice or Lucas I would do, Unless you are an amsoil preferred customer or dealer

With the introduction of ULSD fuel, it is recommended to run an additive to keep the lubricants in the fuel system. I attended a Jasper engines diesel class recently and we were advised to use an additive. I use Stanadyne Performance Formula witht he blue label. The part number is 38565. I started using it around the first of the year and have actually noticed a difference in the way my truck starts and runs. I was a Power Service user before I found this. In my opinion The Stanadyne product has been better. It is approved by all of the big diesel manufacturers. I am not a dealer so please Do not take this as me trying to sell a product, I am just putting down what I have personally found with my veh.
