Its alright to use if you don't have any other additive to use. You ll end up losing mpgs. You should try using Stanadyne power performance and fppf total power or redline products.

Meh, neither me or my dad have ever run additives in our trucks and there fine. It depends who you talk to. Some say the diesel alone is enough lubrication and what not and the dealers say not to run any additives. But yet you get a few people who swear by additives and run tons in every tank. I think it's a waste in these newer diesels tbh

DieselKleen is a good product for the fuel system! But as mentioned Standyne is better. I run DK because it's so readily available anywhere.
