Additives

Do any of you guys use any additives on the daily, I live in cleveland ohio so it gets a little chilly up here in the winter i heard the diesel fuel can almost gel up in cold temperatures any truth to that? Ive heard of rev x, and another product called diesel kleen? Any comments or help pros or cons are greatly appreciated thanks guys!

Rev x is more so for the 6L it dies wonders in those engines. Chances are in Cleveland area you won't have gelling issues. Where I live it dips down to -40f and I've never had issues. I can't remember the last time I filled up without additives. I use to use diesel Kleen but this summer switched to the ford stuff which is stanadyne in a ford bottle. It will be full blown winter here real soon and I'll switch back to diesel kleen white bottle

I run the diesel kleen (grey bottle). But a lot of guys up north I see run the diesel kleen white bottle. I do believe I get better fuel mileage with the ford additives but I haven't bought any in a while.

Thinking about getting rid of the stock 6.7 turbo?
Check this out... and research before buying

I used ford cetane for three years or since I bought my 2010 f350 but just switched to opti-lude.

Main reason I switched is I can buy it in 5 gallon buckets instead of having all these little bottles every where and plus the buckets come with a pump so I can fill up little 24oz bottles for trips.

Also I think the opti-lude is better and cheaper with volume purchasing.

There's some research that was done about different additive and you will be surprised how some work well and some work bad...

Power Service {White Bottle} when the temp falls below 20F. Have used Howes as well.

Howes Lubricator

It never has dropped in the negatives here but in the teens and 0F many times last winter. I am not taking any chance. I fill up at Loves 1 block away with B19.
