Low Sulfur Fuel? ??

So what is the best additive to be running in these older trucks for this low sulfur fuel??? I have heard of a lot of different options, but which is the best? And why did they have to switch fuels anyway? Was it to help with emissions? And has anyone heard of or had any problems with running there trucks without any additive? That stuff can get expensive.....but so can repairs.

Yes they changed to meet smog standards or something like that. I run ULSD with no additives when im not running off-road around town, trucks always worked fine.

the easiest way (not having to do any math) is to use Biodiesel. just find a station that has it, pump and go.

yea, i have heard bad things about that stuff tho. I was told you either have to run straight bio or straight reg. diesel. Other wise it screws something up. And there is only one station around here that has it. and its 20 miles away. thats too far for me to go just to fill up.
