There's always someone out there trying to get your money.
After the switch to ultra low sulfur diesel the snake oil salesmen came out in force trying to get the gullible folk's money by saying the new fuel doesn't have the lubricity of the old.
Not true at all.
Same thing happened when lead was removed from gasoline.
By law all diesel fuel must have the same lubricity as the old high sulfur fuel.

My uncle is a woodcutter and has his own diesel truck, skidder and more equipment. He said he uses marvel mystery oil (and has for several years) adding it about the same as several have recommended using 2 stroke twc-3 oil to the diesel at about 1 ounce to one gallon of diesel fuel. He said it helped in several ways including keeping his fuel filters cleaner. Just a thought to pass on.

I use 2 stroke oil in mine, but the ONLY reason is it quiets down the injection pump a bit. The P7100 can be pretty noisy. The difference is noticeable.

That is the last reason I run 2 stroke in mine. Rev-X is a big deal on the 6.0's. Since there injectors are ran by an oil rail the rev x actually works for them.

That's the problem with fords. They change to much. You need to build one engine then fix the flaws to make it perfect.

Lol it does seems that way. Isn't that bad but sure doesn't beat working on the a 12v. But as far as rev-x goes it did fix my dad 03 ford (6L) sticking injectors. The truck would start a little rough around 30 degrees and under but now it can be 0 and its starts up perfect. I wouldnt use it on my 12v but i do use 2 cycle oil.

I cant stand when people say .. chip. BAAAAALLS. Its a programmer or some other smart word. One of the only trucks that accepts a CHIP is the 7.3L. It actually is a CHIP and is implemented behind the Ebrake.

A smarty is not a chip, EFI not a chip, Edge not a chip. TS Chip for a 7.3L ... That, that is a chip.
Pringles ... chips. Cheetos ... chips. Lays... chips.
