    Thanks, I think your right, I'll just stick with DK during the 8 warm months and the Ford stuff in the 4 cold months. Hows that ZDDP working for you? I am think I'm going to change oil to T6 5w-40 after this summer. Don't know if I will try ZDDP or Rev-X this winter, I don't have any problems but I don't want any either. Thank again for all you do. Bill

    Ford states to use up to 5%. But even then to make sure the oil and fuel filters are changed at the "sever duty" intervals - 5k miles for oil and 10k for fuel. To get the maximum lubricity effect, you would add 2.5 gallons to every "empty tank" fill-up. That woul;d be a little less than 2 gallons to each fill-up that had 1/4 tank left. You can go about 3 times this amount and still be within what Ford recommends. That being said, I know people that are using ALL B20 (even some that say they are using 100%). I haven't decided if I would do that or not, there are no doubt issues created w/ using much Biodiesel. You ALWAYS get fuel dilution of the oil, so some small amount of your fuel will circulate with the oil. I am suspecting that this Biodiesel use is why I have slightly elevated iron numbers in my used oil analysis. Beachbumcook used a double dose of DieselKleen and his injectors lasted about 240k miles. That might be the easier path.

    I am sorry - I do not know. I have some suspension info somewhere, but can't find it now. I will look, but don't count on me finding it.

    I can push 450/770 out of my stock 6.0. I have yet to find a need for them. IMO its a waste.. unless you going to something like fass or ADII fuel system.
