Motorcraft Fuel Additive, Use or not?

What does everyone think about adding this stuff with every tank of fuel? Is it really worth it, or not? I know that on the 6.0 if you did not use it, you would be replacing the "High Pressure Oil Pump" at around 80K. Is this the same thing for the 6.4?

If you can find the stuff yah run it. Most people run Diesel Kleen though. Not cause it's better but because it's sold EVERYWHERE.

What does fuel conditioner/fuel quality have to do with the longevity of the HPOP?

From what I understand, when they began removing the "Sulphr" from Diesel, the fuel lost "Lubricity". The HPOP in the 6.0 was designed to use the "Sulphr" as a lubricant, therefore the HPOP was starving for lubtricant, thereby early failure. The Motorcraft conditioner restores the lubricant that is missing from today's fuels. I was wondering if the 6.4 had accounted for this, in it's design, and eliminating the need for the conditioner.

I use the Motocraft Cetane booster and performance enhancer. I buy it online at [PM-22-A] Motorcraft Diesel Cetane Booster and Performance Improver(PM22A). You can buy it at the dealer as well. Each 20 oz. bottle treats 125 gallons. Pretty cheap insurance.

i think you mean fuel pump. the hpop (high pressure oil pump) is oil only and never touches fuel. if it sees fuel, you got a serious issue somewhere.

the lower sulpher dried up seals that werent made for the lower lube. injectors too.


but ive been running diesel kleen for a year and a half and the whole life of me owning my sd since last aug, i dont see any gains.

I believe you mean the Horizontal Fuel Conditioning Module (HFCM), not the hpop......

i generally dont buy from companies that start out in one area ie rims exterior mods and then start making everything else.its just one of those things.i feel companies like rbp make things really cheap and then use their name to sell it.but thats just my .02.give it a shot.
