from what i have read and researched the 2 best ones are dieselkleen and stanydyne (sp?) I personally use dieselkleen every fill up. I don't know that i actually notice anything from it but it's only about an extra 2 bucks per fillup and when your already spending 75+ i would like the little extra help or preventive maintenance it provides. PLus you can get it almost anywhere.

I have read a study on here somewhere, and 2 stroke engine oil at 1oz per gallon is supposedly one of the best additives you can use, and it beat a LOT of other higher priced and more popular ones by quite a bit.

I was having white smoke at cold start-up and tried Lucas. I thought I had a bad EGR. Less than a week it stopped smoking at cold start-up and was running smoother. A week later I got a ScannGaugeII and found out my water and oil temps were not far enough to worry about the EGR right now. This was the first time ever using any Lucas Product. Could have cleaned the tip enough to close off the injector enough to keep it from leaking after shutdown.

I run the 2-Cycle oil ever fillup, and Diesel Kleen every other / third. I may be imaging things, but the 2-Cycle makes things seem quieter and smoother. On the oil side, I still have Rev-X in there and my cold starts are a breeze now.

I add Schaeffer's Diesel Treatment with every tank fillup. I buy it at NAPA.

The best additive hands down is biodiesel. Anyway here's some food for thought.
