If he wasn't banned I could ahve told him about one close to him.

ATF in diesel fuel is a big no no....old timers used to do it many years ago but ATF composition has changed dramatically over the years....all kinds of additives that are designed not to burn and act as friction modifiers.

That stuff is hard on the newer style high pressure fuel systems and injectors......in my opinion makes as much sense as tossing a handful of fine sand into your fuel tank every time you fill up.

Point taken it was an old farmer that told me. Thanks for the info will have to see if any of the top four are available here in Utah. Then work my way down the list.

That's what I run now. Kuboto recommends it and the local equipment rental uses it in their diesel powered stock.
