Been for a brouse through the archives and noticed a few postings on diesel fuel additives but not too much detail.

Any suggestions on preferred brands and frequency of use would be greatly appreciated.Rosco

I have used Pro-Ma pruducts for a number of years and have found them to be good economical and really work. I use this product about every 4 tankfills Ie about 4 to 5 thousand K,s. However they are not available over the counter you must get the additives from a dealer. Try a search on the web for your nearest dealer.

I would dearly love to meet you one day.

Mate you are so correct about about the additives. ( and some other things)

When I had the turbo fitted, my pump was done at the same time plus injectors.

The 'Pump guy' in Bayswater Victoria, informed me when asked, that the additives pretty well do dick all.

He is adamant that it's the filters that are the key to it all.

Chuck new filters at it every 5000 and you will not have too many problems from a fuel point of view.

I recently used a Chem tech product on a trip to NSW. Performance and economy were greatly improved. It only costs $8 per bottle and you use 20mls per tank. It was highly recommended by a truckie mate.

Mine is called diesel power and sounds the same as that.
They reckon it helps keep the injectors clean but I wanted it for the biocide in it to keep the algae out of the tanks. Pretty cheap so why not considering it'll take nearly 25 to 50 000 k's to use an 8 dollar bottle
