    This is my first diesel, cat 3116's. Other than oil and filter changes, what is needed to be done, assuming all maintenance is up to date? ? Store it full of fuel or empty? Additives? thx

    Additive such as Diesel Kleen or Sea Foam. The more fuel that is stored takes space away from moisture. I usually add some Marvel Mystery Oil to all my oils.

    Hmm. Here is where it is located to find it manually.

    Home page or forums.
    Club level
