Which should I use to clean up the fuel system? I feel that my mileage is a little low(avg. 23 mpg) and I am sure that the system has never been cleaned. I do not have too much smoke emissions, other than when I nail it to smoke out a tailgater, which I enjoy. I like the idea of lubricating the system for maintenance. Thanks for all replies.

Hey Zach,

I remember that you have a '85 300D cuz I have the same thing. It might be a good idea to tailor your profile in this tech forum so that whenever you post something, it automatically will show what kind of vehicle you have. It will allow other members to know what year and model you are asking technical questions about.

As for cleaning out the system, I use Redline Diesel Fuel Catalyst. Seems to make it run smoother, and burn cleaner.

There are other additives you can try as well. Diesel Purge from Lubro Moly. Haven't had any experience with that though. Maybe some member who has had experience will comment on it.

Just a thought.

See you in the fast lane (Turbos RULE!).
