I am all for spending a few bucks to save me a few thousand, and I understand not seeing any results from a lubricant, just trying to make sure I am spending my few bucks wisely. The AP is easily available locally, while I have to order in OXPD.
you'll find 10 different ways from sunday of all the detailed things people do to try to extend the life of their pickup. At the end of the day, there are so many variables that affect the life of your rig that besides keeping good fluids in it at all times... i seriously doubt one can do much more to extend the life. And even if claimed something helped... you couldnt prove it. Literally just too daggum many variables to try to hold constant to scientifically make that claim.
Very true, I think at this point I am going to try to go based off what the truck tells me and call it a day. This is my first diesel and looking at the price to repair some of these parts makes my stomach turn. However I work with a guy who doesn't run additives at all. I appreciate everyone's input, really love my truck so far.
