Favorite Fuel additive tail?

Have a buddy who mixes Diesel Kleen with Marvel Mystery oil. Another who mixes 2-stroke oil with Lucus. How many out there have a favorite fuel additive tail?

Another vote for Walmart 2 stroke oil. Really quieted my engine down. Not saying the others aren't better but I've tried this and Conklin Diesel Plus and the 2 stroke just sounds better, cheaper, and easier to get a hold of.

Biodiesel always gets priority in my truck. If it's good ol #2 going in, then Alterra Dieselmaxx is the additive I use.

I only use and additive in the winter to prevent gelling, and the truth is I think thats a waste of money except when it starts getting down near 0.
