I wouldn't run anything below Diesel Kleen (#10) on the above list. I would only run diesel kleen if I was desperate and not because it is a bad product but, because there are so many additives superior to it. JMO

Red is the best IMHO untill you get caught :D

I only use 2 stroke oil every now and then, but mainly diesel Kleen and over treat the crap out of it.
Yep, I usually put the 40 gallon bottle in a new tank of gas. Not quite 2:1 the regular dosage, but it's overkill. Runs like a top when I do this.

I have used #5, #7, #10, #13

I can say that #5 was the best, things were smooth and quiet with OptiLube. DieselKleen is just so easy to get though.

I do run a mixture of 14oz lucas with 18oz diesel kleen (silver bottle) mixed in a 32oz bottle.
I`ll put in 12oz-16oz pretty much every tank full.
I will have a increase of at least .5 - 1 mpg, compaired to when I don`t add my mix.
I do top off and hand calculate everytime I fuel up.
I have used this mixture since 2003 on 2 of my personal diesels, and never any issues, only good results. :rockin

Lucas also works great in carbureted and older fuel injected gassers.
Lucas also acts as a fuel stabilizer it works great for the vehicles that set alot.
My class A gasser motorhome only gets out twice a year and I have never had a fuel issue since I started using Lucas fuel treatment 5 years ago, including the gen set no issues.
Mileage is up 1 mpg 5 1/2 to 6 1/2 average and I have owned my gasser motorhome since 1995
