Just wondering what the majority of you guys use for diesel fuel additive. This ulsd is BS and having spent big money on injectors, pump and FASS I like to use the proper lubricant. Thanks for any info.

I usually run some power service and haven't noticed any issues with anything. I run half the recommended mix but I run it every tank instead of occasionally.

I just got some Opti-lube today. I am getting ready to pull the 5th wheel 1500 miles for a camping trip so I figured it would be a good time to try it. I am going to play with it and my 2 stroke oil, combo etc. I will let you know what I get when I get back. :thumbsup

Optilube Summer Blend from johnfjensen.com for $60 delivered

Just started using Opti-Lube Summer Blend with this tank of fuel. I have over 400 miles on this tank and the overhead seems to be indicating about .5-1 mpg gain even with some idling and a 2 short tows (20 miles) with 3000 lbs

I have been obtaining 21.1 to 21.2 hand calculated for the last couple 400-500 mile tanks. Will fill up in a few days and advise if the Opti-Lube is all it is cracked up to be. It does seem a bit quieter...

where is the best place to get it (opti-lube) from? can you run the xpd in the winter? i've noticed that they have 3 different types.

what where you running in your tank before to get that mileage?

thanks

I run 2 cycle oil every tank. 32oz per tank. Or about 1oz per gallon. It has really helped my injectors.
