FUEL ADDITIVE THOUGHTS

Hey guys and gals, I would like to get some thoughts on what ya'll are using for your additive, I have been running Diesel Kleen forever, Pretty happy with it, But I had a custmer the other day and we got to talking about fuel ecomony and EGR replacement anyway LONG STORY SHORT he said SEA FOAM works wonders. What do ya'll use and do you think it improves your MPG's or is it just a cleaner in your eye's
Thanks for looking at this, By the way I live in San Antonio,TX so is usually warm here.

Bryan

I have been using diesel kleen because its easy to find and Im happy with it. I use sea foam in all my gas toys and am extremely happy with it. I have used the sea foam treatment on my last fuel filter change and filled the fuel bowl up with sea foam and it helped with my starting times. I guess they have a diesel treatment now and I wouldn't hesitate to use it

Ive used Howes, Stanadyne Performance, Opti Lube XPD, and now 2 stroke. Out of all of these I feel the 2 stroke has been the best by far, as far as a quieter, smoother running engine goes. As far as MPG's go none of them have done anything for me. I now have some Schaeffer Soy sheild and some Schaeffer diesel treat that im gonna try next. Im always wasting money on these darn additives, Im hoping they are doing something internally that is beneficial.
