A 32oz bottle of the Diesel Kleen treats 100 gallons BUT can you use too much???

I put an entire 32oz bottle in at every fill up. It's seems the more the merrier.

Thoughts???

Depends on how many gallons per fill up, if no aux tanks then IMO that's too much. I use aprox 8 oz per fill up 25+- gallons.

It seems to me that every diesel motor needs an additive based on the low levels of Cetane that are currently added to diesel fuel?????

I use diesel Kleen in my '99 ford. I replaced all the injectors at about 175,000 and still am uncertain if they just gave out or it was the programmer I was running. Took the program out just to be safe.

According to my diesel mechanic, the only thing needed is a very, very cheap quart of automatic transmission fluid at least once per month. It is mostly detergents and will clean the injectors and keep them lubed.

I put 2-cycle in mine every fill-up and 1 quart of transmission fluid 1/month. In addition to the benefits of added lubricity, the 2-cycle makes for better black smoke when the dumbarse bicyclist are on our county rd with 55 mph speed limit and NO shoulder!

Wont hurt anything, but thats overkill and you're spending more $ per tank than you need to. 1 oz per every 3 gallons is reccomended.

BTW, DK is good stuff.

Diesel Kleen for me too. It's made here in Weatherford, and the owners are friends and hunters. That's enough reason for me.

Default Diesel owners....What fuel additive??

Weird I was gonna start a thread on this the other day, but I forgot! I also run diesel kleen, I won't run Lucas again after if crystallized in my dads fuel rain line valve and cause high return pressure. I feel like diesel kleen does me some good and it's cheap. I have heard seafoam is some bad a stuff, but it's pricy!

Are you guys putting this stuff in the new diesels with the super high pressure injectors? Say a new 6.7 ford? Just curious if I should start using this stuff......

I run PM22 in my Ford 6.7 it is both a Cetane booster and a lube. Depending on the quality of the fuel I can really see in fuel mileage and hear in the sound of the motor the difference it makes. I run 8 oz to a fill up which is usually 27-28 gallons in my 37.5 gal tank.
