Fuel Additives?

I tried doing a search before posting this, but only found one covering it, maybe I am searching wrong. I just bought a new 2012 F350 Dually Diesel and my friend who has a diesel as well says he puts a fuel injector cleaner in with EVERY fill up to keep the gunk from building up with what diesel can do to injectors. First of all do you all put injector cleaner additives in your tanks on fill up, and if so what brands do you recommend, and lastly where is the cheapest to buy it in bulk. Also will using additives mess with the warranty on the engine in anyway?

If you knew you should search for your answer before posting, why didn't you search? Or just search a little better?

A simple link to one of them would suffice, rather then being a tool about it. Thanks for the help, it took you more time to type out how rude you are then a simple link to help. There are bigger tragedies in life to lose sleep over then me posting this, damn. I have searched, I found one. Perhaps I am using the wrong key words but I am not finding a "ridiculous amount" of threads, so for that I am guilty and I apologize your highness. I wish we could all be as smart and as cool as you, maybe I need to go get a Hyundai as well to achieve that status....have a good day!!!

Here's what I use. The biggest reason to use this is to lubricate your fuel system the new fuels do not have enough lubrication. The second reason is to increase your cetane number. This will give you more power and better fuel mileage.




Diesel Kleen +Cetane Boost is a technologically advanced diesel engine performance improver that cleans injectors, boosts cetane and lubricates fuel injection components. This Max HP Formula restores lost power, smooths rough-running engines and improves fuel economy up to 8%. Diesel Kleen can be used year-around, but it is not a diesel fuel winterizer or antigel. When winter temperatures drop below + 30°F. use Diesel Fuel Supplement +Cetane Boost (in the white bottle) to provide maximum winter protection for your diesel engine.

DIESEL KLEEN® +Cetane Boost®: Max HP Formula ? use during non-winter months for the ultimate in performance.
