    There are a million of them out there.... Been using Diesel Kleen lately and was wondering what everyone else uses. I'd like to get anti-gelling and lubrication out of it.... better fuel mileage is just a bonus.

    And if you're using Diesel Kleen, which one are you using?

    We use diesel kleen white for treatment and the red if it gels up. We havent had any gelling problems since we started using the white on a regular basis. This is for our skid loaders. Our trucks are all gas.

    White helps prevent gelling. Grey i don't think does. White in winter grey in summer.

    Power Service Deisel Kleen for me. White right now and i use it every fill to make sure no gelling and cetane boost. I also have red 911 in the box in case.

    I use Kleen in my 7.3's with no problems and better fuel economy. Colvins is correct white for winter and grey for summer.

    Hands down K100 Fuel Treatment, Call ask for Eric and tell him Scott Leighton told you to call him. He will tell you everything you need to know with no BS. Best treatment on the market. BTW Eric is not the sales man he is the guy that had a hand in making this stuff and runs K100.

    The difference between the white and grey bottles is the white has anti-gelling additives and not as much cleaning agents as the grey bottle. The gray bottles also claims an 8% increase on mileage while the white bottle doesnt

    We use Howe's Lubricator in all our work trucks. No freeze ups in the 3 years we've used this product.

    None, i get my fuel from a small station that also does home fuel deliveries. The owner cuts the diesel 50/50 with kerosene. I have never had any gelling issues in the last 5yrs since i started using his fuel.
