Nice.
You do as the books say and add additive to lubricate your diesels.
I do as I like and on 9 diesel vehicles I have none has any "emissions control components".
Yes, a diesel engine will stop right away if gasoline comes at the injectors.
But, gasoline is the best to thin down Black Diesel.
And after you add some diesel fuel too it runs better then ever.
Better mileage.

What book?!. The factory manuals state:

GM
* Aftermarket diesel fuel additives are not tested by General Motors. Some additives, particularly those which contain alcohol or water emulsifiers, may damage your fuel system. If you believe that unique circumstances call for a fuel additive to be used, consult your dealer for advice.

* Diesel fuel that has been mixed with engine oil or automatic transmission fluid could damage your engine and emission controls and potentially void your warranty.

Ford

* ULSD can be used in all Power Stroke Diesel engines without need for any additives.

* Motorcraft brand fuel additives can be used in all Power Stroke Diesel engines if desired.

Dodge

* Dodge Cummins diesel engines do not need any additive for lubricity with ULSD diesel.

You see, I tend to go by what the engineers who designed, built and have to stand behind problems say when it comes to additives to my diesel engines. I completely and totally ignore the book of here-say that you seem to rely upon. As in ALL of your posts; those terrible little things called FACTS clearly elude you.

And that is why the diesel engines are failing faster then before.
So you are accepting what they preach and follow like a sheep.

Not sure about additives, but I know that both my tractor (Bobcat) and my car (VW) limit the amount of Bio-Diesel to only 5%. They both suggest Dino-Diesel. My former New Holland allowed 10% Bio-Diesel blend.

Uh, Dargo has been affiliated with the automotive industry for the last couple of decades.

I think you are very misguided in your statement.

Actually, I believe the only "follow like a sheep" part would be for those who spend their money on Motorcraft brand additives when the line just before their sales pitch clearly states that such additives are not needed.

Otherwise, I am unaware of any advice, even referenced in court, that supersedes the directives provided for owners by the vehicle manufacturer in the booklet legally called "Owner's Manual". As a blanket statement, I would say that one would be best served by following the instructions provided all new vehicle purchasers in their respective manufacturers Owner's Manual.

If, by chance, something in the engine, for example, fails and you can prove that you followed the instructions given you in said Owner's Manual, I doubt any manufacturer would be able to escape paying for all repairs required that were from the result of following their advice. Many of my best friends and immediate family members are attorneys. Over the decades I have seen them prevail every time I can think of when directives in said Owner's Manual were followed by the owner; or as you call them, sheep.

I know two engineers currently employed at Boeing. Should I ask them if this is a fact known, and approved, by Boeing? I'm sure I could have an answer by tomorrow.
