nothing will get hurt running additive, I dont have any kind of emission equipment what so ever on my LBZ and I run 2 cycle oil in the fuel, 1qt per tank, I also run opti-lube, with every tank, but my injectors and fuel system are not stock

One trick I used to do with my old diesels is to put about a pint of ATF in the tank every third fill up just to keep all the injectors and fuel system lubed. Worked like a dream so ATF and additive might be good is it wouldn't mess with the dpf systems now

I read a report on lubricity that determined that 2% biodiesel works the best. Some additives did next to nothing. If I can find it again I'll post the link.

I don't do nuting to mine. Spent 10 years as a automotive engineer and most of the additives are just hype. If it makes you feel better, do it, but mostly unnecessary.

Remember Andy Granatelli and STP in the 70's. What a crock.
