Still trying to make a decision as to which brand to go with. I know both brands have summer/fall/spring formulas and winter formulas. Let me know what you guys use and your experiences?

Lots of stuff online for and against additives, shocking right? This study has shown up in several diesel forums. Opti-lube consistently scores high...seems to be the preferred choice for a lot of peeps, including me. Don't ask about any noticeable differences with/without additive as I cannot tell any. It more about peace of mind and longevity of the fuel injection system for me.

dumb question, but how do you pour in additives? The fuel port is designed for a fuel nozzle and doesn't seem to like anything else?

You can buy funnel with 'extended outlet' at any auto parts store. I store and transport mine in a 'screw cap' bottle such as this:

If you have kids- make sure you label- 'Mr Yuk' it so its not used for anything else.

Also- its handy to carry hand wipes with you since odds are good you will get 'some on them' from the nozzle or handling!
