    I have always used Power Service religiously for about 20 years in my diesels. Good stuff. My 91 has 280k and still running fine on original pump and injectors.

    I only use Stanadyne Diesel Fuel Additives "PERFORMANCE FORMULA" ,used to use it on my old 84 chevy 6.2(was still running strong when I sold it 5 yrs ago with 280,000 miles with never having the valve covers off and but 1 pump at 60K(factory replaced) and no injectors) and made it run a hole lot better never ran without it in the tank, gets better mileage and more power also, and makes it a lot quieter and smoother, I now use it in my 04 Chevy Duramax and all the same still holds true http://www.blueridgediesel.com/New Additives.pdf http://www.blueridgediesel.com/specials1.htm the guys on www.dieselplace.com 's forum all rave about it also, so guess im not the only on that like's it:wink:
