Re: moth balls in the fuel tank
[ QUOTE ]
I heard about someone who recently got into a bussiness sellling a fuel additive that is currently trying to be shut down by the goverment because the product is said to be no more than moth balls.
I could'nt get many details and thought someone hear might know about it.
The bussiness sounds like a MLM so that alone makes it sound a little fishy.
But thought someone hear might have tried it in their 6.0 and I am curious as to the results.
One reason for my curiosity is that years ago I used to be a dozer operator and I remember the old timers saying that putting a handful of moth balls in the fuel tank of a dozer made it push better but I was never brave enought to try it.

There's a whole thread on this down in the biodiesel forum.
If you have a 6.0, NOT NOT PUT ANYTHING IN THE FUEL TANK OTHER THAN FUEL, A GOOD DIESEL SUPLEMENT, OR GOOD QUALITY BIODIESEL.
Use of anything other than the above, will cause problems in the injection system & WILL result in a denial of waranty claim. These engines are a whole 'nother animal than what the "old timers" used, and using "old timer's wisdom" will cause expensive problems in a new diesel engine.
