I use the summer+ Opti-Lube blend in my old 7.3l. All I can tell is that it makes the engine substantially quieter. No difference in mpg or performance. The summer+ formula is pretty inexpensive as well and I only drive it in warmer months so I don't worry about fuel gelling in the cold.

I burn 100,000 worth of fuel a year in my KENWORTH and never add anything to its tanks, so same for my powerstroke

Well whatever kind of oil they are squeezing out of those snakes sure makes my truck run quieter. And with an old diesel that sure makes a difference in comfort.

I can see adding lubricant for the older pre ULSD but wouldn't they design the newer diesels that require ULSD to run on it without lubricants? Just a thought. I have never added any to mine.

The big problem is the HPFP is not a quality piece, they can't take any type of contamination, water, gas. It is not that they aren't designed for pressure, they can't take any contaminants run through them, the U.S. has low quality diesel.

Quart of two stroke oil and a bottle of Amsoil Cetane booster per 60gal fill up for my 2007 5.9 Cummins. Slight mpg improvement, <1 mpg, but huge difference in quieting the engine noise, smoothness and felt power/response.

I use both Amsoil Cetane Boost and Amsoil Injector Clean+Cold Flow Improver in the cold months/Injector Clean in the warm months. I have noticed a little increase in mileage. Biggest thing I have noticed is that it runs much more quite. It is a 2015 MBS.

You guys are nicer to your truck then me. I change oil with the DIC says to and put what ever blend diesel is at the station I stop at. The only special thing I do try go high traffic stations. Just before the warranty expires I trade for another one start over and let someone else worry about it. I'm spending my kids inheritance and enjoying life....
