Have you ever heard of this?
A friend (Derek) at work walked in my office the other day and tells me that a close friend and great diesel mechanic was talking after a BB game the other day. The mechanic asked him if he has noticed a loss in power and fuel mileage since the ULSD hit the market. Derek told him he has lost power and upwards of 3-4 mpg. The mechanic told him that he needs to change his fuel filter, run 1 tank through the filter, change the filter and do it again. He said to do it 3 times then he wouldn't have to change the filter out for 10k.
The mechanic told Derek that this procedure will "Pull all the sulpher out of the engine" and that he would get better fuel mileage and his power back.
He said he has done this to his truck and got his missing power back and his mileage has gone back up.
Anyone heard of this?:shrug:
The mechanic drives one of the fastest Dodge trucks in the state, and Derek drives an 03 Dmax.
