How could they tell you didn't get it in your fuel purchase. If I remember correctly, Primrose is really a distributer style additive. Stuff one would add to a tank before retail sale...


George will correct me if wrong, but I believe that's what Primrose is for.


So, back on topic, I don't think that GM could really do much as the Primrose could have come from the fuel station that you bought your fuel from.


PS I run Stanadyne also. I would like to have both on hand and alternate just to see if there is any difference in overall performance.

I drove to Yellowstone and back and ONLY stopped at Truck stops when fueling if possible. I did have to buy diesel in a couple small towns and worried for a while that it would stop my engine. But after cutting open my cat filter all looked well.

I've used three tankfuls of fuel treated with Stanadyne...seems to work very well for me. The engine sounds more like a diesel and is much more responsive. I've tried Lucas and I thought the Stanadyne Performance additive was superior....I'm buying more of the Stanadyne stuff...just my $.02.

Don't say Grand Rapids, I filled up at the BP by Eric's house a couple of weeks ago.

Then I hit an Amoco BP that Eric pointed me to...

i use howes in my baby...that's what i was told to use by the shop foreman, a mech and a parts guy at the shop that does the servicing...all told me independently when i asked them...they advised that stanadyne shud be used in '03-'04 models...


this shop is a gmc truck only dealership and has a BIG service dept that services LOTS of diff diesel engines, including the big rigs...they sell several diff additives, so it's nothing to them which i use...</TD></TR>

Wayne,


It's just my opinion, but the thing that our truck needs most is extra lubricity in the diesel fuel. According to tests shown over on Stanadyne's site - the howe's actually does little to add lubricity to diesel fuel. There is no great difference between your '01 and the '02 and '03 - I would use stanadyne in all of them...

Last filter I saw cut open after using Howes was JeBar's rust laden 12k unit that I changed out when I put on his Mega filter...
