Research Labaratories

Just finished reading a study by RL on fuel additives on the TDR web site. Very informative and compares 13 popular additives in 6 different cat ie cloud pt, cetane ,etc. If you are a TDR you can read it on web site, if not you may be able to google RS and get the info.
It will give you the unvarnished scientific data, not a whole bunch of opinions that are based on not much.

Per my owners manual:

FUEL REQUIREMENTS (DIESEL ENGINES)
Use good quality diesel fuel from a reputable supplier.
For most year-round service, No. 2 diesel fuel meeting ASTM specification D-975 will provide good performance.
If the vehicle is exposed to
extreme cold (below 20F or -7C), or is required to operate at colder-than-normal conditions for prolonged periods, use climatized No. 2 diesel fuel or dilute the No.2 diesel fuel with 50% No. 1 diesel fuel.
This will provide better protection from fuel gelling or wax-plugging of the

fuel filters.

NOTE:
A maximum blend of 5% biodiesel may be used

NOTE:
In addition, commercially available fuel additives are not necessary for proper operation .

NOTE:
No. 1 diesel fuel should only be used where extended arctic conditions (-10F or -23C) exist.

So .......................
No additives for me as they are NOT needed

Regarding Research Labs.....NOTE: I am speaking to a class of businesses, not (Necessarly) a business by that name.

Many work for money, You tell them you want research proving Sugar is bad they give you a lab report proving Sugar is bad.. You pay them to find that Sugar is good and artificial sweetners are bad (Which by the way is true in some cases) they give you a research paper showing just that.

You pay them and they give you what you want..

I have read many research papers.. Heck, do a lot of my own research.. The difference being I'm not paid so I try to find facts.

Some of those research papers have holes in the logic so big you could pass a flight of 747 Wide Bodies IN FORMATION and not nick a wing tip.

It just shows all the listings broke down it doesn't say one is better then the other. It just shows the values plus or minus of each one.It doesn't advocate any brand Doesn't say to use or not to use. Is that so difficult for some of you to understand ? You haven't even read it and blah, blah ,blah.
I am glad there are so many scientests out there.
