    My truck is in getting the egr un plugged and im thinking about running an additive. Dealer has the ac delco brand they suggested.
    Any advice?

    I live in southwest ontario, so it does get pretty cold Jan-Feb.

    sounds like you idle the truck to much, if you keep having to get your erg cleaned out soon you will need to have it replaced.

    The fuel injector cleaner that GM use to sell branded as their own was Chevron Techron. I don't know if that is the case these days. This is what I mostly use.

    Additives won't help. I have mine "unplugged" ;)

    Never heard good or bad--but probably WAY overpriced.I've used Howe's Lubricator,Schaeffers,and Power Service in my truck diesels[including 3 Dmaxs] and excavating iron forever.You want a de emulsifier treat for whatever additive you choose so that the water will fall out of suspension and then get drained out of your ''water in fuel'' bowl on the bottom of your filter.Use the combo fuel lubricity and anti-gel EVERY fill.
