Ok so I took your advice and got some Diesel Kleen and put some in at my last fillup. Have used about a 1/4 of a tank and can feel and hear the results already. The motor is running a lot smoother and quieter. Thanks boys. Do you guys add it every fillup?

Most guys add some sort of additive to their fuel at every fill-up. Diesel Kleen works good as well as Amsoil and two-stroke oil. Stick w/ what you're using, as you seem to like the results so far!

I add 10oz Diesel Kleen to every fill up. It will pay for its self with better fuel milage. If it cleans and protects as advertised I don't see how you can go wrong. I've heard that the Amsoil is great also but haven't used it yet.

I've been using Opti-Lube. It was rated one of the highest regarding lubrication properties. Been using 10 oz per tank.

I get about a 45-50 mile range increase. I've heard that switching to synthetic oil increases fuel milage even more. Staying off the skinny pedal is the best, but how much fun is that? Its almost time here in NY to switch to additives with anti gel. Its in the 40's already!

Does cetaine boost help out a whole lot? I ask because I am getting ready to make an Amsoil order and if it's worth it I will get some but If not I'll hold off.

Same here. I noticed my gas mileage going down.

But the truck did run quieter and smoother. Happy with the product, but did NOT see any fuel gains as it claims.

Can you switch to a diesel kleen that already contains the anti-gel additive or do you switch products all together?

Diesel Kleen has a winters blend in the white bottle, the summer blend is the grey bottle.

I believe it helps. I have been using it since I bought my truck. It starts better and combined with the AMSOIL fuel concentrate, my fuel economy has improved. Cetane booster is designed to help with fuel ignition quality and reliability.

If I can get you some more information on this or anything else AMSOIL offers and save you 25-35% off retail, just let me know. That is if you're not already working with someone.

Take care,
