No need for additives in a modern engine with current fuel. If you travel from warm to extreme cold, you may need to treat with anti-gel or if you let your fuel sit in the tank a long time, you may need something that prevents growth in the bio blends.

Yeah, that's why I use Howes with anti gel half the year, and the regular Howes the other half.[/QUOTE]

I second howes. Using it in both of my trucks and never had a single issue. This coming from harsh Alaskan winters.

Newer engines are made to run on todays fuel. Your just wasting money unless your worried about gelling. Def, buy it in the box. They don't use that much to begin with and at our shop we see big rigs with contamination problems from getting it at the pump.

My 98 needs no DEF. But I'm curious. What is the purpose of Diesel Exhaust Fluid?
