I would stick to fuel conditioner. The fuel systems are WAY to delicate to be risking putting in anything else.

I agree a 7.3 will eat anything you put in it but newer trucks are allot more delicate when it comes to fuel systems

Don't do it...30,000 psi can screw up an injector pretty quick. Especially when your trying to push anything but fuel or things made for high pressure fuel systems through the pump or injectors...the holes in the nozzle tips on these injectors are way less than a human hair, makes for awesome fuel combustion through good/fine spray, but they are delicate...aaaaannnnnd, expensive, just found that out replacing my #1 injector.

This is not the fuel system of the old diesels. It is not as tolerant of random additives as the old ones.

This bonus of dedicated fuel system additives is that they normally boost cetane as well as adding the lubricity you're trying to add.

For an idea of what you're up against, go to Ford and ask them to price out a new high pressure pump and injectors and then decide if you still want to dump two-stroke or trans fluid into your fuel.

Yeah with the delicacy of the fuel system in these trucks, I wouldn't put anything in that isn't specifically meant to be put in.

#2 Diesel and DieselKleen are the only things that go in my tank. Beating a dead horse now, but I wouldn't chance it.
