New fuels?

Been hearing a lot about the new fuel having no lubricants and that this is causing issues with injectors? Also been hearing that you need to add additives to your fuel to compensate for this issue? Heard that the new fuel also has gelling problems below 15degrees Fahrenheit? I know that a few of you live in colder climates than I do, I live in central PA and see cold temps every once in a while and haven't had any issues yet.!!!

In the winter all the stations run a "winter blend" of diesel....diesel mixed with keorosene is what is boils down too. (did i spell keorosene right???) anyway, you shouldn't see issues with gelling unless temps are below -20 F. As far as lubrication, that remains to really be seen. But protect yourself (protect your injectors) by getting an additive that has a lubricating ingrediant in it.

Never had a problem before (being a diesel guy for 8 years now) and never used any additive. I just recently started using Diesel Kleen (Silver) about every 3rd or 4th tank full. I live in a normally hot climate the great state of South Cack-a-lacky (Carolina). Should I use a attitive more often or am I okay. Once again the last to trucks never saw any attitve and I never had the first problem with either of them.

for those of us that are running an older engine (probably 7.3/6.9) this new Diesel doesn't provide enough lubrication our engines. you need to find something that will put that back. the easiest is to run Biodiesel, at least 5% blend. i have a 96 PSD 7.3, i put 20% Biodiesel on every fill up.

i say that bio is the easiest additive for this new diesel fuel bcuz the gas station does the blending for you. you don't have to do any thinking on it, just pump and go.
