No Kerosene or Jet fuel, unless its JP8. JP8 is very similar to Diesel, and the military uses it in all its Diesel vehicles. The other fuels lack the lubrication your High pressure injection system needs. Good idea to buy fuel from a station that sells a lot of fuel. You don't want to buy at the station that has diesel in an area predominantly loaded with luxury and sports cars. Most areas here in California are ok to buy at, because there are so many diesel trucks around that the tanks get filled often.This additive subject is real interesting and I find it confusing. Been searching the net for the last year since I decided to get a diesel. Heard of folks using kerosene, looking for jet fuel etc. etc. Even went to couple of truckstops and had coffee with big rig drivers.
The most sane advice got so far is to buy my fuel where the big rigs fuel up. Fuel is up to snuff with additives, fresh and less chance of water contamination.
Because of the stop and go urban driving, use best 100% synthetic oil, change filters often with good brands.
If you're going to spend $$ on aftermaket products, get extra coolers for engine and tranny, more filtration for both, cooler intakes and better exhausts. Any personal advice out there???
Ill throw another vote in for Stanadyne. All there additives are up to date and it seems like they do alot of testing to make sure there additives work well and wont harm any components http://www.stanadyne.com/new/index.aspNot that I am claiming that Stanadyne is the best fuel additive brand around but I found this information interesting. Since I haven't found any other additive site out there that have posted comparisons with other leading conventional oil brands like this. If there are I would like to see them.

I live in NW North Dakota in farm and oil country. The easiest diesel additives to find here are the Power Service products carried by Cenex, Love's, Pilot and Flying J. I use the Diesel Kleen Cetane Boost in the dyed diesel for the tractors. In the cold weather I use the Power Service Winterizer/Antigel and burn #2 diesel without trouble in both the 2020 Duramax and the loader tractors. I have used the dyed diesel in -25F with the Winterizer/Antigel and have never froze up; it has not dropped below -12F this winter so I haven't experienced extreme cold with the Duramax. Power Service also has a Diesel 911 in the event you do freeze up. I stick with #2 year round; I don't like the mileage and power drop in #1 or the P40 crap our Farmer's Union carries.I Thought We Werent Supposed To Use Additives At All?
I Live In Eastern Nc And We Have Low Sulfer Diesel
Is It Ok To Use An Additive And What Kind Should I Use?
