John, I think he just developed the "misconception" about it through reading & not knowing.
I agree, his being new to the subject, I can understand his confusion. It took me awhile when I first became a diesel owner, and I made some wrong assumptions and statements as well. Hopefully we are helping him, I hope he doesn't view our responses as demeaning.

I agree, I hope I didn't sound condescending because it certainly wasn't intended that way!

I didn't think you were. You were very complete, plus added your personal uses.
However, he hasn't been back. Hope we didn't offend him, seems like a desirable member

No problem. I thought DEF meant, Diesel Enhancement Fluid. It should say Diesel exhaust enhancement, according.to your explanation. It says if I run out of the DEF, the Engine will shut down. Thats why I thought it mixed with the diesel. Thanks for your response.

Eco diesel has a system that adds uretha and water (DEF) to the fuel to make it burn the fuel more efficiently. It increases the mpg and performance of the engine.
The DEF is added to the exhaust to cut down on NOx emissions. The ecodiesel is just a smaller engine, less weight in a half ton chassis, and that is why mileage is better.

Thanks again. I really appreciate you taking time to respond. This is my first diesel and the Ecodiesel was new to me. I knew if you put the DEF in with the diesel by mistake that you couldn't run the truck without doing major damage to the engine. I buy the Lucas by the gallon and still had some left. I will get what you told me to get and keep you posted on how it works flo me.
I’ve used the additive many times without issue, Lucas makes a diesel specific additive called diesel deep clean. If your heart is set on Lucas then I would recommend that
