Not trying to sound mean or anything, but lots of people have asked. Just use the search tool and there will be plenty of information on this topic. Someone might have to correct me on this but I think the man you want to read about is Mopar Man - he is the man you want to talk about about this. I am on my first tank of doing this, and I can already tell it has quitted down my engine noise (not exhaust noise I wouldn't want that), and yes it is supposed to help on your fuel economy.

On the hunt for a 7.3 preferably CC or Ext. Cab SB...Let me know of any deals.

it helps replace the lubricant that is lost due to the ultra low sulfur diesel that the epa makes the u.s. use. it quiets the injectors and helps with wear on the fuel internals...

^^^I was thinking the same thing.

the Marines can. They are the same
kind of men; why can't they be like
Marines."
