I use the motorcraft anti-gel and performance booster. not taking any chances with the warranty here. You can also add the the cetane booster since the anti-gel has no CB just performance enhancer.

Motorcraft has two product.
PM-22 has a cetane boost but no anti gel
PM-23 has a Anti-Gel but no Cetane boost

I want booth in the winter, so I use the Opti-Lube XPD, has both Cetane, Anti-gel and one of the better lubricity improvers. But you will rarely find it in a store. You need to go to their website to buy it.

Power Service is available at almost any walmart, truck stop, farm store. The white bottle does Cetane and anti-gel. I usually can find it for half the price that walmart sells it for at my local farm store,

I have only used the power service anti-gel(white bottle). I like to use something that is available almost anywhere. The Power Service products are available in my area (Wyoming) at most gas stations/truck stops, wal-mart, ect.

Can you pour both of these in the tank at the same time? Or do you like alternate?

Yes. Been doing it since temps dropped below 20. Also this is what I was told to do by the service guys at the stealership.

Why would you do that? Twice the cost of just using a product that has the right mix of ingredients for the season. Plus twice the hasle of mixing two additives.

I'm sure the stealership would recommend it. You are spending twice as much at their parts counter.

I use Opti-Lube most of the time and especially in the winter months. If I don't have any Opti-lube with me, I'll use the Power Service white bottle during the winter. The only Motorcraft I've used was the PM-22 during the summer months.
