Texas Refinery DZL PEP Artic. It's what most of the farmers around me use for their equipment and I figure if it's good enough for 1/2 millon dollar tractors and combines etc it's good enough for my stuff.

Diesel Kleen at Wal-Mart. Never had any issues running it and it's readily available.

X2

I also believe the grey bottle helps with MPG and less regen's.

No pick for "none."

Road Diesel has anti-gel included in the "winter blend" that starts showing up at gas stations in northern states in November.

Anti-gel is NORMALLY only needed when temps drop below 10 degrees AND you have "summer blend" in the tank (or your spare cans).

Over the counter anti-gel additives will drop the gel point 25 degrees, so you may need additional protection if the temps get lower than -15 degrees in your area.

Other virtues of their additives verge on "Snake Oil" sales tactics and may, or may not, have any positive impact on your injectors etc.

Diesel additives DO have a place in the egg crate in the bed of your truck.
This is the time of year that I start recycling my spare can diesel into the truck and replace it with fresh winter blend.

I hope this post does not steel the thread, but it's interesting and along the same lines as the current subject matter. Hope it's interesting and provides some insight into additives.

Disregard. I tried the link again and the bottom link actually took me to the article.\

This link works well.
http://www.scribd.com/doc/57719847/D...-Additive-Test

OK, read the article and I think the following should be taken into consideration when evaluating the results. "Skipping to the end" would actually result in a correct selection of the "best" additive for improving lubricity but not determine WHETHER IT WAS REQUIRED.

"-The independent research firm obtained a quantity of “untreated” ULSD fuel from a supplier. This fuel was basic ULSD fuel intended for use in diesel engines. However, this sample was acquired PRIOR to any attempt to additize the fuel for the purpose of replacing lost lubricity. In other words, it was a “worst case scenario, very dry diesel fuel” that would likely cause damage to any fuel delivery system. The fuel was tested using the HFRR testing facility at the Laboratory.
This fuel was determined to have a very high HFRR score of 636 microns, typical of an untreated ULSD fuel.
It was determined that this batch of fuel would be utilized as the baseline fuel for testing all of the additives. The baseline fuel HFRR score of 636 would be used as the control sample. All additives tested would be evaluated on their ability to replace lost lubricity to the fuel by comparing their scores to the control sample. Any score under 636 shows improvement to the fuels ability to lubricate the fuel delivery system of a diesel engine."

So this study says additives improve MPG's.

This study says it improves HFFR's, but does not do MPG tests.
