Does any one use any kind of additives on a regular basis, and if so do they do what they are supposed to do. I have 33K on my 06 3500 and i was thinkin about using some at regular intervals. I ahve heard of some pretty good benefits of using fuel additives on a regular basis. Maybe something like a fuel system cleaner of something like that.

With today's inconcistency of ulsd and bio additives provide some extra insurance. There is a whole thread on 2-stroke oil for a lubricity additive. Look for one that adds lubricity, a moisture dispersant, and has a detergency package if you want some mpg improvement.

Stanadyne Performance Formula.

I use it every fill up, the cost of the additive vs the fuel savings makes the additive nearly free with the added benefits of increased lubricity.

I'm going to stick by my guns and say...

2 Cycle Oil

I'm currently getting 21.7 to 23.3 MPG with 2 cycle oil and it will out perform must of the common fuel additives at a 128:1 ratio mixture.​

Here is my last tank of fuel...​

123,907 - 123,558 = 349 Miles travelled / 14.893 Gallons of Fuel = 23.43 MPG (Catch me if you can...:thud:)

Here is the low down on 2 cycle oil...:w:
2 Cycle Oil

I don't use any injection cleaners, cetane boosters, anti-gel etc... Its all cover by 2 cycle oil! For the price of 2 cycle oil at $8 bucks a gallon. I buy 4 gallons and it covers me for a half a year! ($32 bucks)...:thumbsup:w:​
