    Yep........Stanadyne is the top of the heap as far as diesel additives go. In a pinch, however, it's better to use ANY conditioner than NO conditioner.........

    Here in Finland we don't need to use any additives in diesel,because diesel fuel is good enough when it comes to service stations.

    I'm too lazy to stick shift,that's why I prefer autotranny.

    That's,probably because your government hasn't taken steps to eliminate the sulphur from your diesel fuel. Sulphur is nasty stuff, so I would rather add a little bit of conditioner when I fill up then spew all that poison out of my tailpipes........
