Wanted to check and see how many guys are using this for the new 6.7 I called my dealer yesterday and they told me its not really needed for the new truck. They put me thru to the parts counter and the guy there said they have not sold any but could get it in. But after doing some reading on the net a lot of people are saying that it's a good ideal to use it.
If your using it what is a good brand to use or it all the same
One good way to save your Bosch fuel pump is to use cetane boost in the fuel, in the long run it could save you $10k down the road because warranty will not cover it if it goes out because Ford has this thing about saying you had water in the fuel. http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/10...an-update.html
I've been using the Ford PM 22-A addative. Is there a noticable difference to the Optilube or other brands over Ford or just a matter of preference and/or price?
I have used both. I switched after reading the Spicer test which compared the additives. Other than using bio-diesel Opti-lube was at the top for lubrication. Ford's was not in the study but considering that most of the other most frequently used additives were about 8th or lower on the list I am doubting that it would be much better. But that's just my opinion.
I have been using it for over a year now and have had no problems. My oil is dark when I change it, but I would rather have dark oil than a blown HPFP. (Not sure how much you can really tell by just looking at the oil. I have not had an oil test done.)
