I havnt either. But I can see how it would make sense. I mean the low sulfur diesel is the problem. So adding sulfur would make sense to me.

Sulfer is an Abrasive!!!!!! This will do nothing but hurt your truck. Its not the sulfer that hurts the lubricity, but the process that the refinerys use to remove the sulfer that is the problem.

Hopefully this clears things up


BTW, I would expect nothing less from Autozone.

Well that settles it :Hehe: no go on the sulfer additive.

Didn't know sulfur was an abrasive. I guess I learned something today

Its suprising how many people think that sulfer is the problem. Very common misconception. I can see autozone making a fortune on this, especially when you go to them for parts

When you think about it, it makes sense. Sulfer is a rock or a mineral, right.

Lube and Cetane booster is what will help. I use Opti-Lube XPD. Cetane booster, lube, and anti gel.

No need for sulfer!

Not in your head! I just added a gallon to a friends 7.3 work truck. It sounds like a freaking 6L now. So much quieter!


Also, when I started adding XPD, my 6L hushed down a lot!
