Best Additive?

Whats the consensus on the best cetane booster for the 6.7? My Ford dealer is adamant that I need to run a booster and sold me some Motorcraft stuff. Is there a better option?

Diesel Kleen® +Cetane Boost® in the summer and Diesel Fuel Supplement® +Cetane Boost® in the winter?

I use the Ford product but at higher concentrations so if there is ever a fuel system issue the additive can't be "blamed". I haven't tried Opti-lube but may soon.

The genius within the EPA decided it was in everyone's best interest to reduce the sulpher content in diesel fuel to a maximum of 5 ppm. Sulpher acts as a lubricant in your injection pump and lubricates your injectors. A diesel fuel additive restores some of that lost lubricity and also acts to reduce the cloud point of diesel fuel in cold climates. Other benefits include absorbing water and inhibiting algae growth in warmer climates and increasing the cetane level of the fuel (similiar to the effects of tetraethyl lead in gasoline.) Personally I use Schaeffer's Diesel Fuel Additive. Schaeffer Oil Videos.com :: St. Louis, Missouri - Videos

You'll find that alot of people here use different brands, the main thing is to start using one with every tank fill up.

Hope this helps.

I have 14 diesel engines from 1953-2011 and I run B-11 in all of them. The only time I use an additive if its going to be below 10 degrees.

EPA motto, "We're not happy untill your not happy"
There are several other goverment agencies that use this motto
