Same thing here, we ran it through the 83, and it ran super smooth on the purge, then it was back to its normal idle/operation once it was back on regular diesel, the biggest improvement came with a valve adjustment, idle was much more even/smooth. Mine runs ultra-super smooth as it is, so I don't intend to do any purging, I will do a valve adjustment before winter however....

Redline isn't intended to be run full strength. Just add the requisite amount to the fuel tank when you fill up.

Can you add this Redline product to your tank if you're burning biodiesel?

Transmission fluid????

A friend of mine had been trying to get me to put a 1/2 qt of transmission fluid in with a tank of fuel, but wasnt too sure about it. He said that he did it in all of his MB diesels. On my way back from visiting him in AR I let him go ahead and put some in when I filled up before I hit the road back to Dallas. Well, I am not sure what it did, but after about 50-60 miles down the road once on I-30 cruising at about 75-80, I looked up in the rear-view, and she farted out a big cloud of black smoke never missing a beat or misfiring or hesitating and then she ran smooth as silk the rest of the trip back to Dallas. And On that tank of fuel I got nearly 35mpg (best I had gotten). I do the redline every couple months but do the tranny fluid about every 3 tanks or so.

That reminds me of an old girlfriend I convinced to let me, how shall I say, hit her ol dirt road. Took alot of coaxin' and the initial reaction wasn't pleasant, but it was smooooooth sailin' after that.
Seriously though, tranny fluid in the fuel tank!?!?!
