Some people like a few ounces of 2 stroke. If you search you'll find many threads on the subject.

Any heavy truck parts dealer/repair shop should carry it.

I use Howes every now and again. The truck runs a bit better with it.

i use 2 stroke, ive been thinking of trying some Howes. The local chief school bus mechanic said they really will pay for the tow if the fuel gels when using howes. even for the big busses.

i use straight non detergent 30w. 1 quart per fill up. much cheaper and the engine compartment is noticably quieter.

If I am down south and fill up I will buy some Howe's, as an antigell. Other than that I have never seen any additive fix anything, Buy clean fuel and change your fuel filter. 99% of class eight's never use an additive unless they are coming north in the winter. 99% of th additives out there are mineral oil, and dye 100% crap. Use ACdelco, Fleetguard, or Baldwin filters. Just a thought!
