I have used it and I like it but I prefer Stanadyne Performance Formula. You can get a case of 12 on eBay for about $70. Its very good stuff. Stanadyne is a maker of diesel fuel pumps and injection systems for commercial use and they couldn't find an additive that met their needs so they decided to make their own. It lubricates the fuel, raises your cetane a few points and helps burn the fuel a whole lot better. I defiantly notice a difference when I use it and when I don't.

I'm not bashing diesel clean because it still does a great job at lubricating the fuel its just that I think Stanadyne is slightly superior

Bottom line is as long as you use some lubricating additive in your USLD you'll keep your injectors happy

I use it and trw-3 two stroke oil from wal-mart. I read a test, I think on here, that was conducted by a laboratory on all the major brands of lube additives, for their wear reduction capabilities. Surprisingly diesel kleen was down the list a ways. the trw-3 two stroke was about 3rd i think and the cost per tankful was a lot cheaper than most. I agree with Maz that stanadune is really good stuff, I was using it but I can't get it where I live now and I just have'nt ordered any on ebay.

Then make sure you keep up with your oil and filter changes and use a good synthetic 5w40 motor oil. Injector stiction is a common problem of dino oil users.

i think the trw-3 is the outboard oil, so look over in the sporting goods section, you use it to add to gas for outboard engines for lubrication, read report in diesel magazine that tested using that, inexpensive and said did good, never have tried it but faithfully use the diesel kleen, one of the sponsors local chapter really believes in it and sells gallons of it to truck fleets.

My BAD, its not trw-3, its tc-w3 Sometimes I get confused. LOL Yea FourX is right it is a 2 stroke mixing oil for boats,weedeaters, ect. 200-1 ratio 28 gal.=18 ozs


type in atf added to fuel in the search this forum window, there is a report that PGreenSVT posted that gives all the popular additives, the wear ruducing capabilities, ratio to use and the cost per use, really informative.

I am a firm believer in DK.
It's orbs only additive I've tried, and that's because of the reaction my truck has had to it.
