Fuel Additives

Any thoughts on using ATF or 2-Stroke oil as an additive? We are using #1 ULSD here in Interior Alaska.........

Stay away from those types of additives with ULSD.
I use PS Diesel Kleen (gray bottle), but its warm here in the south.
I would use the Power Service (White bottle) that adds anti gel up in the cold

I buy the stuff that ford sells. That way I never have to worry about them complaining about something I added that they don't agree with.

I'll second the Powerservice in the white bottle for your climate. There are several good addatives out there for diesel fuel, so theres no reason to add something that's not been tested an approved. Folks were able to get away with running almost anything as an addative years ago in the good old 6.9's, and some of the 7.3's, but with our fancy injectors, it's better to stick with a proven source, in my opinion.
