Thumbs up Has anyone tried this Diesel Fuel Boost Additive?

I drive a 2009 Chevy 2500 Duramax diesel. My neighbor came to me one day asking if I wanted to try an additive for my truck. I used it and noticed a 15%increase in fuel milege. I went to the website on the bottle
http://www.dieselfuelboost.com/ and this stuff is cheap it treats 160 gallons for 17.95. Im surprised I have never seen this stuff, its like no other additive out there because it also has water disbursements so that the possible build up of rust and algae less likely occurs.

Did you do some exact measurements? When was this? It could have been when the stations were switching from winter to summer fuel blends too.

Yes I did exact measurements. This was very recent I just finished the testing last week. It took me 2 weeks to test it. Im getting another bottle and giving it to my mechanic to have him do some testing on it.

i believe that the water disbersement is a bad thing for diesel. it doesnt allow the filter to remove the water.

I agree this sounds like another in a long line of miricle cures. I have never seen an additive repair a problem. I have used ATF as a flush to clean up problems that an additive caused. Just a thought!
