Detergents and enhanced lubrication....Is it necessary with modern oils? I guess that's up to you to decide.

I'm thinking if it helps HEUI injectors work more smoothly even when running synthetic oil, it has to be doing something.

6.7ferd You're correct there John Galt. Every vehicle is different.

Patriot Did someone say Archoil?

john galt i prefer archoil to most things if you have new injectors chances are they will work like ew injectors.
the advantage there with the archoil is they should continue to act like new injectors longer.
in my truck with 180k on the injectors i can feel a difference when i run archoil vs when i dont.
but the sea foam seemed to help above that as far as cleaning things up. my injectors wee suspect when i got the truck...i have 75k on them since then and they are smoother quieter and the truck runs better now than it did then
in summer i will run a gallon or two of veggie oil and that really helps clean things out too. but be damn sure after that tank you change the filter because it really does clean stuff out.
i have tried a number of additives and the best two i think are the archoil and sea foam
but every truck runs different gets different additives in the fuel and reacts to things differently so...

SixStringMadness I've used the REV-X in the past. It works. Blew me away what such a tiny bottle of liquid could do.

*EDIT* - have not used in my current truck with new injectors and such, but I am using archoil currently and T5

6.7ferd Lol. Funny badge there John. On the seafoam subject I've only used it in a few older gas trucks and tractors. Never on a diesel. May have to try it. I've read alot of good reviews on Rev-x additives.

hmmm...
i was getting kind of a very slight not sure i would call it a surge but a slight unevenness at idle and by chance i had some sea foam so i dumped in 3 bottles and drove to reno about miles or so and that stuff was like magin. idle is super smooth and the truck just feels better driving :rhumb: thought i typed out something of this nature but ...
good luck with it and i am a believer now. and at 7 bucks a bottle at walmart...i am real impressed and it acts as a staballizer if iam to believe all the crap i have read about it in recent weeks.
i was down around 1/4 tank dumped in three bottle drove a hundred miles filled up and the truck just runs amazing.
might be a thought for what its worth not many things you can do for 20 bucks with one of these trucks and it did make a difference for me
i will add the truck was running pretty good already so
