Re: Fuel additive Amounts Stanadyne Performance Formula
[ QUOTE ]
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.

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.
