layback40, you basically call me a noobie with few posts yet you've been here less than a year and you're flooding the place with twice the post per day rate of myself. Now, did you have something to contribute to the thread?

Get J30R9 5/16" fuel injection hose. Not J30R7!!! It's expensive. It may run $5/foot but will take B100 no problem.
There is no point wasting money in such a manner. As the PDF you yorself linked to said "Most elastomers used after 1993 are compatible with B100 (Viton/Teflon)."

B100 compatible hose is good to use if you are willing to spend the money. The stock rubber works just fine. Rubber hose has a service life regardless of the fuel type you choose. The stuff needs to be replaced anyway. Just replace it and move on.

Does anyone use a special additive to avoid valve adjustment? No, its normal maintenance, you adjust the valves. Brakes, tires, filters, ....rubber hoses.... its all considered a wear item.

And you guys in the pissing contest, can you take it offline? Really, just get out the rulers, see whose is the biggest and lets move on.

I thought it was all about how you use it, not how big it is?

New injectors make a world of difference guys.

I am aware I sound like a broken record. I do not work for any Diesel shop nor do I endorse a place over another, I am just amazed at the difference they made on my SD for the money. I used Monark nozzles that replaced original Bosch that were around 235k. Far more linear delivery of power, better start up, better idle, more power, etc.

Previously I tried Diesel Purge and it may have made for a marginally smoother running motor, but it was nothing significant. Hell, I believe the adjustment of that rack damper bolt did more for me

I've had about 31 benzes now, mostly old diesels, I have not tried the diesel purge yet.

I might someday though.
