I would use a BioDiesel product like B20 before SeaFoam. I think HotShot is great for 6.0 stiction but I would run a diesel specific treatment by Power Service that removes water and also be prepared to add one that is a biocide.

If a truck sat for 2 years I would be concerned about condensation having gotten into fuel and possibly microbial growth.

Ofcourse, if you live in cold climates it might be hard to find B20 this time of year.

If you’re only experiencing this issue at higher RPMs, have you considered a dirty fuel filter? What does it look like? If you haven’t drained the fuel bowl on a truck that sat 2 years then I would drain it into a clear glass jar.

I would do this after driving it long enough to transfer fuel from the tank into the fuel bowl.

And post the picture if you get a chance.
