Fueling up the tanks and airing up the tires for a road trip. Years ago they removed most of the sulfur from our diesel, giving us Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel. Well, that sulfur was one of the primary lubricating factors which kept the insides of your injection pump from wearing. Diesel fuel itself is the actual lubricant for almost every internal part in almost every kind of diesel injection pump. So when they removed the sulfur, they increased the potential for premature wear in all pumps, especially the older ones.
Now while I am still researching the very best additive to use to get the lubricity (lubricating factor) back into my fuel .. I am currently using Diesel Kleen with Cetane Boost, mostly because it's available in almost every auto parts store and I have not discovered any reason not to use that particular brand. Folks say that the Stanadyne product may be superior, but you almost always have to special order the Stanadyne additive.
So I may switch to another additive and it might be Stanadyne, but for now I have no issues with the Diesel Kleen by Power Service.
I have measured a 10 to 15 percent increase in fuel efficiency when using the additive, which easily pays for the additive itself. It's the Cetane-Boosting aspect which increases your fuel mileage. Similar to an octane Boost, in a diesel engine, a higher Cetane value means your fuel vapor can start compression-igniting a little bit earlier which results in more fuel being burnt more efficiently, hence more power and better mileage.
I believe there are also detergents in this and other additives which helps to keep the fuel system and injectors clean.
Lucas Oil (upper cylinder lubricant) vs. Diesel Kleen (gray bottle)
My results front using Lucas Oil Fuel additive:
AVG: Normal daily driving - 16.8 55 Mph freeway w/cruise
control - 24
ADD: 6oz per fill up (23.8 - 27.7gallons)
1/10 Mile test: 10.3 seconds @ 67 MPH
EGT: 1,500 Outside temp: 85
Results from Diesel Kleen (gray bottle):
AVG: Normal daily driveing - 18.0 55 Mph freeway w/cruise
control - 23.3
ADD: 8oz per fill up (23.8 - 27.7gallons)
1/10 Mile test: 9.7 seconds @ 72 MPH
EGT: 1,400 Outside temp: 83
The biggest difference I saw was with MPG and more responsive throttle. Im
thinking of doing testing with more cetane increasing formulas to see what
I can get going.

How to: Advance timing 1/8" on your 89-93 Dodge cummins VE pump!! more power and +2mpg! best mod
Video showing how to advance timing "1/8" on yiur 89-93 Dodge cummins VE
Also works on 4bt cummins engines with VE pump! one of the best mods out
there. Increases mid-top end power on your cummins.. in some cases your
spool up time will suffer but that depends on pump tuning. do all 3 mods in
my videos and your truck will get up way faster and you'll have a smile from ear to
IDI Ford F250 4x4 Diesel Mileage, Fuel Additives, Radiator
I fuel up, talk about Diesel Kleen and Stanadyne additives. I calculate my
mileage in this truck for the first time and it turns out to be about 13.6
MPG with a lot of heavy city driving in there, about 80% city driving. I
paid $3000 for the truck. I show some issues I have with the radiator and
I'm getting into more detailed research on diesel additives for lubricity,
cetane Boost (mileage Boost) and all critical factors and
considerations. I'll continue to add links to this description as I find
