I read the overview. Seems like the lawsuit is based on incompatibility with American diesel. In my diesel supplement to the owners manual it says you need to run an additive in these trucks. Seems like Ford's way out to me.

I thought it said supplements are not necessary.

My 15 supplement says to add the Ford diesel treatment.

My 2019 manual basically says not to. Page 187 states:

Diesel Fuel Additives
It should not be necessary to add any aftermarket additives to your fuel if you use a high quality diesel fuel that conforms to ASTM industry specifications. Aftermarket additives can damage the fuel injector system or engine.
Use Motorcraft® cetane booster or an equivalent cetane booster additive if you suspect fuel has low cetane.
Use Motorcraft® anti-gel & performance improver or an equivalent additive if there is fuel gelling.

Well it sure would be nice if they get forced to replace them at the very least. I mean I had to replace mine not that long ago and it was a little over $6,000 kind of some BS considering they knew it would happen and chose not to fix the issue. At least offer up a different pump that will hold up or something.

BS since you can't comprehend basic English:


Pg 17:
Diesel Fuel Additives

It should not be necessary to add any
aftermarket additives to your fuel if you
use a high quality diesel fuel that conforms
to ASTM industry specifications.

Aftermarket additives can damage the fuel
injector system or engine.
Use Motorcraft® cetane booster or an
equivalent cetane booster additive if you
suspect fuel has low cetane
. Use
Motorcraft® anti-gel & performance
improver or an equivalent additive if there
is fuel gelling.
Do not use alcohol-based additives to
improve cetane quality, to prevent fuel
gelling or any other use. The use of alcohol
additives may result in damage to the fuel
injectors and system. See Technical
Specifications (page 57).
Your warranty may not cover repairs
needed to correct the effects of using an
aftermarket product that does not meet
Ford specifications in your fuel.
Note: Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel fuel is
designed to meet the emissions standards
for the 6.7L engine and is backward
compatible as well (for example, it can be
used in the 7.3L, 6.9L, 6.4L and 6.0L diesel
engines in Ford vehicles.

Something about that little word "if" makes a WORLD of difference. Working in the real world researching/developing all kinds of training programs/literature there's a reason for the selection of certain specific words you may find in directions/instructions/literature.



Will, Must, and Shall define a required action. They drive a specific outcome of the action.

Should, Could, May and Might define actions that allow a greater choice in the final selected action. There's several acceptable actions that will achieve an outcome that is acceptable.

If, And, Or type wording generally require certain conditions to be met before a specific required action can be chosen. Choices have been already determined based upon know outcomes when several variables apply.
