diesel fuel additives

I'm useing motorcraft cetane booster & lubricant, I'm looking for input on, howes meaner power cleaner, lucas, standyne, etc. Anyone heard of storeys fuel in cle elumn wa, they add additives from a on site tank. Popular place with truckers, spoke with a trucker filling up there, hes adding howes meaner cleaner. Great cash only prices they move a lot of fuel. They have conoco diesel fuel.

This PDF is the sexy version of what Term3 provided; this study is phenomenal and extremely comprehensive:

Was using Ford Diesel Fuel Treatment, ordered the Opti-Lube XPD after reading that...

Bottom line is you need to do something, ULSD fuel's lubricity is horrible!

Do you put the seafoam in the tank or in the fuel filter housing?

Seafoam directly into tank. 90% of the time i mix 80% seafoam and 20% lucas fuel additive.

Seafoam has been around forever. I hate when people say it's not good for our trucks. It's what every major marine or CAT uses when filters or injectors get clogged. My diesel mechanic has over 600,000 on his 7.3 and has run seafoam every fillup. Mark my word--he has NEVER replaced an injector.
