Default Fuel additive

I’ve started using the fuel additive made by this company AR6200 https://www.archoil.com/

and I have had great success with it. Very concentrated 1ml per gallon on stored fuel and old fuel.
They also make a friction reducer oil additive. Which uses nano technologies
(WS-2) https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tungsten_disulfide but I’ve been purchasing WS-2 from another manufacture in Canada and adding to Gear oils for some time.But not in differentials with steering, about 1gram per quart. I have used the WS-2 in engines that had poor performance and have seen improvements

Interesting...and thanks for the suggestion. I'm going to try it. There's a fairly popular youtube personality (Billy Hewitt) who specializes in Ford PowerStoke engines, and he highly recommends the stuff:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uE812Iw354o

What hits home to me is last December snowcat buddy Scott and I were driving my older Ford 7.3 PowerStroke when the turbo bearings failed. Fortunately we stopped before running the truck out of oil. It was a dark and moonless night so I couldn't see exactly the volume of smoke we were putting out, however it was Huge! (If you think back to the smoke screens put out by US Navy ships in WWII movies you'll get an idea.)

I use diesel power service in all my motors---gas and diesel------this past spring my big digger had a stuck injector ---I used sea foam in the fuel and it worked ----I mix cooking oil in with my diesel and use the power service all the time---another thing I have been doing on my gas engines when they r going to sit for a long time is drain the fuel and add a lot of 2 stroke oil in the tank and run the motor till it runs out of gas it seams to give the inside of the carb an oil coating ----in the fall I add gas and everything has been starting up with no trouble

why don't you use it in diffs with steering? is it recommended not to? and what is the name of the product that is made in Canada?

Because it is a friction reducer, it would take away from The steerable friction produced by the steering band.

We buy the raw powder product WS-2 Tungsten Disulfide and add it to our Gear
Lubes and oil. 1gram per quart, you can by it by the pound (453 grams ) if you buy make sure it’s the fine grind.(.6 micron )www.lowerfriction.com
