$79.95 for 16 ounces. I'm not a fan of any additives, I'd rather take my chances with regular fuel. That stuff is $639.60 a gallon.

I follow another blog.. and its the consensus on that blog.. is that there are a lot of engines out there running around on fuel labeled ultra low sulfur fuel... that we're never really designed to run on that fuel... I'm one of those guys... I add a fuel additive to do nothing more than add to the lubricity of the fuel and add lubricant that has been removed from the fuel when sulfur was removed...

Some guys I know... use nothing more than a qt of full synthetic 2 cycle oil for every 200 gal of fuel... I use something different... a product that will add a few points to the cetane rating of the fuel and of course a chemical to lubricate the system...

In an early fuels class too many years ago.. I learned that injectors and pumps needed lubrication to keep those very tight tolerance working... and knowing that today.. the tolerances are tighter...

but honestly there is nothing in a bottle or can... that's worth a huge amount of money... the product I use.. adds a few cent's per gallon based on the amount of fuel I add... a few more cent's per gallon is an inexpensive price over the cost of an injector or pump..

There are a number of studies that say you should not put synthetic oil in diesel fuel. Here are the results of a study that Castrol did:

In conclusion, we would definitely suggest using a properly developed diesel additive over 2 stroke oil as proven by this particular test.

With many stations now putting a Bio blend up to 20% in the fuel.
You can't get a better lubricity of the fuel then Bio.

Why put in any additive other then a once in while Biocide ?
Save your $$ as you are already paying for the Bio lube via less MPG :(
And needing to change the fuel filters more often.

I had cause to be around several tests on engine oil and fuel additives in 2001. (not this particular one) The development engineers involved did not approve any of them for different reasons. Some showed early evidence of corrosion and some clogged oil passage ways. None of them had a positive effect on engine performance. (hard to believe that 1 ounce of anything in diesel fuel would affect the outcome of performance)

This may be on the list of things that are too good to be true. Give it a try and let us know.
