opti lube xpd

Was thinking of running opti lube xpd in the fuel for my 6.2L diesel. Was wondering if anyone else was using it in a 6.2L. Typically run power service diesel kleen, but due to the results fo the study that came out in the newsletter a few months back I have been thinking of switching. Just wanted to poll the members and see what the general opinion was and if there was a specific product that is better for a 6.2L and it fuel system.

I want to know more about this.

I don't run any additive myself.

I used to run diesel kleen, i use optilube xpd too now. make it quieter and for peace of mind about lubrication.
I think with newer ip diesel additive are not needed? i can be totally wrong there.

Waste motor oil has so many metallic contaminants that I cannot imagine it would be good for injectors! To run it in motors designed for WMO you need to centrifuge it.....
