Centane Booster or not?

Ok so this is my first diesel (6.7) and it has 1600 miles on it now, should I be using this Cetane Booster or not. Are any of you using it and how much?

YES! I used the Ford Centane Booster and Performance Improver. Engine runs smoother and I notice more power. I use about 4-6 oz per tank. '

Give it a try!

I used it in my 6.4L and now in my 6.7L. Seem to get 1-2 additional mpg.

I use the Diesel Power Service Cetane Booster.

So I did a little research on this Cetane issue and here in California I guess it’s a good idea. Ford recommends about 45 Cetane for the diesel you use in the 6.7, however the diesel we get out of the pump here is around 40 (Chevron), if I understand it correctly 6 oz. of the Booster in a full tank of fuel should bring you up 4-5 points in your Cetane level? Does this sound right?
