Re: Fuel additive Amounts Stanadyne Performance Formula

When I was using Stanadyne, I put half a bottle (16 oz) in with each fill up. My fill ups are between 25 and 28 gallons, usually.

*(I say "was" because I'm now using Diesel Kleen Cetane Boost.)

Re: Fuel additive Amounts Stanadyne Performance Formula

Why did you switch to diesel kleen cetane boost?

Re: Fuel additive Amounts Stanadyne Performance Formula

Yeah - I'd be interested in your performance comparison of the two.

Re: Fuel additive Amounts Stanadyne Performance Formula

I've used 4 different types of cetane boosting forumlas. On my VW TDI you notice differences in everything. Truck-stop fuel makes it run like crap. Hard starts, smoke, rough idle, etc. With BP Premier fuel, the engine's happy as could be. I've tried AMSOIL cetane booster, Stanadyne, and both types of PowerService (The Grey and the White bottle). I've tried it on truck stop fuel and the Premier. I've never seen a noticable difference between the additives on any type of fuel. Believe me, you would definately notice the difference with a 1.9L VW motor. It's pretty picky.

As for the 6.0L, I can't even tell a difference (on a stock truck) between the different grades of fuel, much less different types of fuel additives. Perhaps it's different if you modded. I don't know. But my statement about not noticing a difference between additives in the TDI is probably just the same as for the truck motors.

Re: Fuel additive Amounts Stanadyne Performance Formula

I agree with you in that I can't tell ANY difference in different brands of fuel. I use Stanadyne Performance Formula in each fill up, though.
To answer the original question, it says on the bottle that 64 ounces treats 240 gallons of fuel. That figures out very close to 4 ounces for 20 gallons. I have some 8 ounce lab bottles that I fill to 4 ounces and 6 ounces, so when I travel I can add approximately the recommended amount, whether I buy 29 gallons or 18-22. By the way, I just travelled across Montana a couple of days ago, and added 31 gallons of Exxon LSD at Missoula. HMMMM? 29 gallon tank? Yep.

Re: Fuel additive Amounts Stanadyne Performance Formula

I have used as much as twice the recommended amount and have not noticed anything different. I use it for the Cetane number improvement, the extra added lubricity, and the lowered gel point.

Interesting that you don't notice a difference..... I have an 05 TDI and my 03 6.0.... I can tell you immediately whether there is stanadyne in my TDI or not. Same with the 6.0. Both engines are quieter and smoother with it in. I currently use the Amsoil additive and cetane boost in my 6.0 and notice improvements with it as well. I did not see a difference with the Power Service products.....

Re: Fuel additive Amounts Stanadyne Performance Formula

I decided to try the new Ford Cetane Boost stuff, I am on my fourth dose of +/- 4 ounces per fill-up and see no performance difference. As for mileage increase, I wish! I have seen anywhere from 1 to 3/10's of a gallon less, per mile in semi highway driving, still not much to complain about at 15 - 16.5 MPG calculated average. Guess I'll try the Stanadyne soon as it becomes available again at ShopDiesel.

Re: Fuel additive Amounts Stanadyne Performance Formula

The only way you would notice a Cetane number increase would be if you were using fuel that was too low.
I have never noticed any difference in mileage, noise, performance or anything else. It still makes me feel good to know that the Stanadyne is in there.

Are you saying that when you use Power Service Products, your vehicles perform as if you were using diesel with no additive?

I can absolutley tell a difference on Power Service products - quieter and smoother. I'm currently testing a product by Well-Worth called Summit diesel treatment, and I can't tell it is even in the tank.

That's exactly what I am saying. I couldn't tell any difference between using it and using nothing.... I won't waste anymore money on it again....

Re: Fuel additive Amounts Stanadyne Performance Formula

Do the math.

Gallons of diesel / 3.75 = oz. of Stanadyne.

Same for me. I bought a case of Stanadyne and I do not notice much of anything. The summer to winter blend I notice. But using Stanadyne for 20k miles and my EGR was still gummed up.

Not sure I would buy it again. I stopped using it in the summer. Saving the rest for winter here in MN.

Peace and Blessings
