I didn't notice much running it so I switched to powerservice white and silver bottles. I don't notice a whole lot of difference but they say it helps so I do.

Many of the additives have stuff in them to keep the injectors clean so they can spray correctly.

Normal Cetane levels should be around 45, but can vary. I think minimum (standard) is 40, max is around 55. The higher the better.

It's a bit pricey, but using Opti-Lube I picked up .5 mpg and from I've read on lubricity tests it was one of the best. I'm using their winter formula now, will be switching to the summer one soon.

What about Diesel Kleen. Just picked up a bottle and am planning on adding it with my fill up tomorrow.

I use Diesel Kleen... Does it work? Maybe. I only use Chevron diesel because I heard it was among the best in terms of cetane, so I would imagine that if you are already dealing with a decent cetane fuel, an additive might not show a significant improvement. Driving is so variable to begin with, its hard to tell. My impression is that its better to fill your truck with decent diesel and no cetane boost, than to fill with El Cheapo and then add some stuff to it.

Agreed. Spend the extra cents and get quality fuel. I was just wondering if diesel Kleen was better, worse, same as motorcraft, stp.... Etc. I reckon I will add it and find out.
