im not sure with the brand new diesels, but i have a 03 duramax (LB7), which is known to have injector issues, so im hoping to not have to replace those, and i figure a 3 dollar additive every couple of weeks (say 3) is approximatly 55 bucks a year.thats cheap insurance. not saying it works miracles, but its worth the gamble to me. i figure more lubrication and cleaning the fuel system is always a good thing.

Someone is making or should I say stealing a lot of money on those injectors. A TON OF MONEY.
