New to the 6.7, looking for pointers.

I am not new to the org but I am new to the 6.7 section. I totaled my 6.0 and stepped up to a 2012 F250 Lariat CCSB FX4, purchased it yesterday afternoon. I was wondering if y'all had any pointers to keep her purring like a little kitten. I am adding a fuel treatment to the fuel and I plan on draining water separator every week or so. Is there anything else that I need to do to keep her going like she is now? Besides regular maintenance that is.

By the way I love this truck. It has so much more power than the 6.0 in stock form, it also has a lot better creature comforts.

2012 F250 Lariat CCSB FX4, Gooseneck and 5th wheel prep package, H&S Minimaxx, 5" AFE SS straight pipe, EGR delete with factory EGT sensor, 35" Toyo MT's on stock rims, and Bilstein 5160 shocks.

No reason to add additives every tank, every other tank should be good. I have drained my water separator 3 times in 3 months and never found a drop of water, every week may be a little overkill. Good luck with your purchase, I love my truck.

Congrats. I drained my filter at 6000 miles - no water. I do add Diesel Kleen to it....but that's a personal preference.

Keep it well maintained and she'll purr....oh...and every once in a while....let her run

THIS THING ROCKS!
