I use this too. Seems to space out regens a bit and helps with mileage.

I use this stuff, have used it in my 6.0, now my 6.4, and soon my 6.7; it is definitely worth it. I can say it does seem to net you a bit better mileage, and both my trucks did seem to drive a bit better on the stuff.

I'v been looking into this as well since I'm new to diesel and the 6.7. I've been looking at the Power Service brand and thinking about running the Diesel Klean and Cetane Boost (silver bottle) during the summer months, and the Diesel Fuel Supplement and Cetane Boost (white bottle) during the cold Alaska winter months (especially since my trucks sits in the cold for a couple weeks when I travel for work).

Thoughts?

That's exactly what I would do.

I'm kinda up in the air about the use of fuel additives in these 6.7's, are they really needed? If you say yes, please tell us why?

I think Ford recommends the use of the Motorcraft cetane booster especially during the winter months. I use the Diesel Kleen in the silver bottle to help lube the pumps and injectors. ULSD is hard on those components.

I read the same thing in the manual to use motorcraft cetane booster and the use of motorcraft antigel additive in the winter months.

From what I've read in other threads, the additive and cetane booster like motorcraft, diesel kleen (power service), etc, help keep your injectors & fuel system clean and what not, and the cetane boost can supposedly increase MPG (nothing drastic)

The antigel additive in the cooler months help your injectors, and filters from geling and freezing.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but this is what I'm understanding from the things that I've read. Like I've said before, I'm new to diesel truck and the 6.7. I'm all about taking care of my expensive investment.
