Well next UOA will have Enerburn also as I have 550 gallon bulk tank on site and fuel is already mixed.

According to the info if you have high Fe, you should reduce the dosage a bit (see the bottom of the moving out link).


The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money

I used enerburn in my 6.7 for almost 20k miles. I found that its impact on regens was minimal and for me it was a waste of money. I have been enerburn free now for over 10k miles so if it was impacting the fe in my reports we should see that soon. I have a report coming in about 2 weeks. My regens without enerburn are in the 300-350 mile range around town and I usually make it to 500 auto regen when I do mostly highway diving. For me it was worth the try but in the end I found it was not helping as much as they claimed.

BTW I want to add that I think the fuel I use has more impact on regens than anything else. Sometimes the diesel I get is clear like water and sometimes it is yellowish. i have not put 2 and 2 together yet but my gut tells me it has an impact.

Beercan, almost every stock 6.7 I have seen ends up with about 3 - 5% fuel dilution in a typical oci. Yours doesn't. Any ideas? Are you doing anything different, or do you think it's just because GC has not been performed?

Polaris uses GC so I am not sure. Even the computer on the truck predicts 2% dilution when I get about 7k miles in, so either I am lucky or Polaris is getting it wrong.

As I had stated there was a warranty repair done involving the crankcase vent system.

I am going to assume the Deere lube isn't on the Ford list since it isn't officially API certified, no worries from my camp.


I would use an oil on the Ford approved list. There are plenty of quality oils on the list. I am running Delo 5W50 in my PSD. Basically CK-4 oils that were also SN rated did not have enough phosphorus. Oils that were CK-4 only are allowed a higher phosphorus level.

Then Ford needs to drop out of the API regime altogether, since any CK-4 oil would pass CJ-4 as well. wink

I really have no problem with a company using a proprietary spec, but Ford should pull the trigger one way or the other on this.
