Was looking to buy Red Line 85+ and came across this deal , bought me a case , thought would share savings :thumbsup::cool:
Red Line Oils 70802 85+ Diesel Fuel Additive 12 OZ. (12 Pack) at OutdoorPros.com
Red Line Diesel Fuel Additives promote better fuel combustion and fuel system lubrication. They provide faster ignition, reduce detonation, reduce smoke, and improve engine efficiency. Extremely powerful high-temperature detergents clean fuel injectors. Lubricants significantly lengthen injector and pump life and reduce ring friction which is very important for today's low-sulfur fuel. Both Red Line Diesel Fuel Catalyst and 85 Plus are available as a winterized version which will reduce the pour point of a typical fuel by 25°F.




Designed for use in all diesel engines. Contains extremely powerful lubricants, detergents, seal conditioners, fuel stabilizers and rust preventatives, but without smoke suppressant. Red Line 85 Plus contains additional cetane improvers which boost the fuel 5-9 cetane numbers and additional lubricants which reduce wear in low sulfur fuel by 75%.




This improvement in lubricity and cetane will reduce detonation, assist starting, help reduce smoking, help prevent fuel system wear and leakage and can provide 5% additional power and efficiency.




This diesel fuel additive complies with the federal low sulfur content requirements for use in diesel motor vehicles and nonroad engines.


Cheers,
-M.

Just ordered a case from NewEgg, mostly for use in my '87 TD, but I'm wondering if there's any reason to not use it in my '06 E320 CDI as well. Don't find any proscriptions in the Owners' Manual.

When RedLine is reputable company, most of diesel additives are snake oil.
The 5+ % biodiesel that is sold in US should be provide all the cleaning you need.
I never add any of that stuff, while having diesels with 300k miles.
It is even more questionable with new DPF systems.
