I've been using Power Service in mine since new. I alternate between the white and gray bottles depending on the season. A lot of people on here use the factory Ford additives. I've also had good luck with Stanadyne products over the years as well.

I've been using Diesel Kleen in mine for a while, and no problems. Only been using it for about 10,000 miles (probably less), so don't have any long term results, but I'm not really expecting anything out of this world.

Decide why you want to use an additive and then research each of the available products and choose one that solves problems you face.

If you just want to spend money, you can buy any of the products and solve that need.

If the fuel in your area lacks Cetane, then buy an additive that adds Cetane.
If you need additional lubrication, Then buy an additive that adds Lubrication
( you can read a report on Lubrication here Lubricity Additive Study Results - Diesel Place : Chevrolet and GMC Diesel Truck Forums

If you need to add Anti Gel for cold weather, Then pick a product that does that.

Most manufactures bundle their products, so they accomplish several of the above in one bottle.

Ford offers two products, PM-22 and PM-23 One adds Cetane but no Anti-Gel the other adds Anti Gel for cold weather but no Cetane improvement,

Amsoil and Power Service have worked the best for me so far. The truck seems to run better (more power) on the Power Service.

Used these products on our other diesel pickups and we seemed to circumvent fuel system issues on our trucks.

Definitely use a diesel fuel conditioner as the quality of diesel varies from supplier to supplier. I believe Ford recommends a minimum of 47 octane in this 6.7 motor.

Good fuel will keep your truck running a long time without issues. Keep up on your fuel filter changes also. Dont skimp on certain key items.

The XDP product works great. Cetane booster, engine lubricator, soot reducer, and anti-gelling all in one bottle. Only takes about an ounce so the bottle lasts longer.

I use Power Service as well. I had Furnace issues with my newer High Tech furnace and used a good dose of Power Service and it cleared up and has been perfect for a year now. I continue to add it to my Oil Tank.

A trusted diesel guy at my dealership told me that any diesel with EGR, which is every diesel now, need some kind of additional fuel additive to make sure the EGR valve and cooler doesn't plug up and cause problems.

I use Power Service year round. It can usually be found on sale at Tractor Supply.

I am not being a wise a$$ just wondering why I should have to add anything to my fuel to keep the truck running right. I read the diesel engine book that came with the owners manual and don't recall seeing and requirement or recommendation to add anything to the fuel. I read the book back in April when I bought the truck. New F250.

There is a note in the diesel supplement about running the PM22 additive.
You don't have to run it, Im sure there are plenty of people out there that don't.

I think, in part it's because the very important cetane levels throughout the USA are mostly unpredictable/unposted and frequently below the FORD recommended levels. Also, ULSD is almost a brand-new approach to diesel formulation, designed to reduce immissions, but it's possible that it just really doesn't have enough proper combustion-side lubrication for our engines after all the sulfer is removed.

IMO, "What is" can frequently be quite different from "What should be", especially when interstate commerce is involved.

Personally, I do it to add to the myth and mystique of diesel trucks - really confuses the heck out of all those rice racers to see me at fuel stations climb in and out of the bed of my truck, mumbling to myself, and measuring out strange liquid potions into my tank before fueling up. Arrrggghh! (grin)

I got out the manual and read some of it again. You are right lincster, the PM22 was mentioned a couple of times. I stopped at the Ford dealer yesterday and bought a bottle of PM22. I just have to figure out how much to add to a full tank (26 gal). Thanx for all the replies.

I just read the instructions on the bottle. It states to add before filling to aid in mixing. Anyone add the PM22 after filling up? Actually I don't know how many gallons the truck is going to take until I am done. Normally I watch the $$$ . Right now the tank is full. I try to keep at least a half of tank or more due to condensation.

I always add mine before adding diesel. 4 oz for 24 gallons is what I put in. There is a ratio calculation that you can do based on the mixing directions on the bottle.
