Has anyone used chevron techron, and have had any benefits from it? My fuel gauge is all over the place and ford says it is sulfur on the sender. Ford says to add this to clean the sender. Any info would be great.

Re: Techron

I think Techron is a GASOLINE additive. I wouldn't add it to a tank of diesel. Check the label, but I know that Cheveron doesn't offer any diesel with techron at their pumps.

Re: Techron

Techron can be used in diesel engines. I believe it says so on the product bottle.

I have used it in my diesel tractor for years and in my 7.3L Powerstroke for 115,000 miles with good success. No injector problems or clogging

Techron is such a good detergent that you don't want to add it until the tank before you change your oil change. At least in a gasoline engine. This is because some of it will blow by the rings on the compression and power strokes. In the crankcase, it removes more crap that quickly will pollute your oil. This may not be a concern in diesels due to the nature of a diesel's fuel injection and immediate combustion.

Techron is an excellent product. It hurts to say that because I work for a competing oil company!

Re: Techron

Techron is a gasoline additive - I wouldn't add that a tank of diesel fuel. I diesel-up at a Chevron nearly once a week; Techron is NOT part of their diesel fuel.

Re: Techron

I think your both kinda right:

Can I use TECHRONŽ Concentrate or PRO-GARDŽ in a diesel engine?
Chevron fuel additives are designed for all carbureted or fuel injected, spark ignition engines. Techron Concentrate can be used with diesel fuel in light duty indirect injected diesel engines, such as Mercedes Benz and Peugeot. We do offer Chevron Dieselmotive for direct injected diesel engines typically found in light and heavy duty trucks.
