I use Diesel Kleen in my 300 about every third tank. A bottle lasts quite some time and it makes a great degreaser in a pinch. As my 300 is relatively new and runs pretty clean I can't really tell what the long term benefits are. I've never seen the stanadyne stuff here in FL and as the Diesel Kleen seems to rate about the same everywhere I look it isn't worth the additional cost associated with shipping it.

Man I figured the max revs on the 300 was closer to 3500 as it is absolutely screaming around 3200 for me. That may have something to do with the noise of the zeus gears in mine.

I like to use Marvel Mystery Oil. Its old school; but, so far my 200 tdi seems to run like a top. I add about 3 ounces about every 2nd to 3rd tank of diesel.

Powerservice is normally the easiest to find, lowest priced, high quality DFC around. White bottle for winter, silver bottle for summer.

Zeus gears, what a racket they make. Heard a truck with a set fitted once thought it was about to bolw up and that was at tick-over

Ill typically run Powerservice every other tank, the one that displaces water (one of them does not) if the truck may be sitting for some time.

Oh and Lubro Moly Diesel Purge is supposed to be really good stuff, especially if you fill a new filter with it.

Marvel Mystery oil is correct, not Murphy's- my bad, sorry.

You're thinking of Murphy's Oil Soap!

fuel additives

Always fun to here what different people are running. I've been running the 300tdi for almost 7 years. I use about a bottle of Stanadyne a month. I also use fuel treatment when I'm in the cold. Diesel Kleen or what ever I'm not really brand loyal. Cheap stuff seams to work just as good. About every 6 months when I replace the fuel filter I fill the new one with ATF and Lucas upper engine treatment. Seems to really clean the injectors out and runs like a top. I drain the fuel sedimentor at least twice a month. If you have an issue with a tdi 9 times out of 10 it seems to be fuel related.

Cheers
