Use opti-lube XPD. Google it and order it on-line, Good stuff.

Lucas does nothing for your diesel. I use it in my 5.4L gasser F250 and gain 2 MPG. I use diesel kleen or stanadyne in my 6.0 and it makes my injectors noticably happier. I've heard and read nothing but good things about the opti-lube as well though never tried it.

Anyone else have experience with Redline 85 Plus Diesel additive? Just curious it seems to help with my truck, less knocking and smoother acceleration.

Stanadyne, or the Ford cetane booster. They're the same product

I use Diesel Kleen because it really made a difference with my 7.3. I have a 6.4 now but I don't really see any mileage difference with it. It's mostly just for peace of mind.

I also use Diesel Kleen and mine seems to run a little quieter and smoother.

I too use Diesel Kleen and can't say I have noticed any performance, sound or fuel mileage difference.

Beginning to wider if I should even keep using it.
