Fuel additives

I've been adding a fuel additive every fill up, which is for lubricity, water removal and cetane boost, and generally I like the idea for anything that could help in performance and internal cleaning of parts. Is it necessary to add to every fill? I've gotten responses from "yes", to, "every other fill up" to "only in winter" Its kinda costly and looking for your thoughts on this subject.

I have a case of Stanadyne I bought a while back and love it . I just tried out the new Formula Cetane booster & performance improver from FORD and really like it over the stanadyne . One bottle does 125 gallons of fuel can be bought at Ford . I would recommend it just like stanadyne and I use it in every tank / fill up. made by Motorcraft can be bought from ford .

I have seen a ton of tests and heard everyone propaganda and amsoil is a good brand, standyne is a good brand... but after everything I have seen... the RBP additive is the best... one ounce treats a whole tank... you have 16 oz to a bottle... so while the bottle is more expensive, its costs you like 1.80 a tank vs the 15 bucks or 8 bucks a tank like the other guys
