Standadyne anyone?

Now that Ford has changed their cetane boost from PM-17A to PM-22A the place that I was getting if from doesn't carry it anymore. I was wondering about Stanadyne. From what I have heard they are the company that makes it for Motorcraft. I know PowerService and some others are out there, but I am worried about my warranty. That is why I was sticking with the Motorcraft line. But the stealership wants 8.00 a bottle when I can get a case of Stanadyne for 55.00.
Any and all feedback is welcome.
Thanks,

I use the stuff in a grey bottle from Advance. 6 cetane jump. LOVE it. actually makes a difference. Heading to the track 100 miles away... was getting 18. On the way home after I filled up.... 15. and it was less traffic and better weather. I was ticked I didn't have a bottle of that stuff handy. I would like to try the Standadine. supposed to the "best".


what does PM-xx mean???

Fuel additive onlline.com is the name of the website where I found the 55.00 a case quote. I have not bought anything from them so I cannot vouch for what they sell. I am just looking to replace what I cannot get or don't want to spend the extra money on just for the Motorcraft name.
The PM-17A and PM-22A is the Ford part number for the Motorcraft cetane boost.
So, you guys like Stanadyne? Performance and fuel economy OK? Just wondering.
Thanks,

I'm all about convenience. I use Power Service Diesel Kleen (32oz silver bottle). I get all the lubricity and cetane I need (3 points for every 16oz). I use 8oz every fill-up. It may be $7 a bottle but I can get it at any Kragen's (Schuck's or Checker's too depending where you live). For less than $2 a tank I will pay the extra few cents for convenience (plus I get about 1-2 mpg's better).

What is a Kragen's, Schuck's or Checker's? Checker's around here sells burgers not additives... although I'm sure they have been known to clean some peoples pipes...lol

I hear ya there Bush_Master! Checkers can sure clean some "pipes" if you're not careful.

On a side note about Standadyne, wouldn't that get into some fuzzy territory with the 6.4? My truck is still waiting to go into production, so I have not seen any of the actual paperwork I have to sign and if anything non Motorcraft is going to give me problems with Ford and warranty claims. I know it has been discussed in the past, but don't know if people are now starting to have any warranty experiences.
