Fuel additives.

Howdy folks. I'm asking a question that's been addressed on a couple other boards, but I want to hear some more opinions.
I have a home in the city, as well as on my farm. During the winter months, I keep one tractor at the city place, to plow snow. I have a few "regular customers" that pay me well enough to make that worthwhile. Plus, it gives me an excuse to go play on the tractor!
I have a bulk tank at the farm, for deisel fuel. At the house in town, it's much easier to just run over to the nearest gas station, and fill up with deisel, even though it cost's more.
OK, where's this going? I have heard (all my life) that "taxed fuel", being a different formula, is not a good "lubricant" for injector pumps. Some people add Automatic transmission fluid, or used motor oil, or any number of other "home remedies". What's your thoughts on this? I have my opinion. I'm not going to give it yet. I don't want to influence anyones reply. I just want a few thoughts from other people.
What "over-the-counter" additives do you use? I'm not talking about fuel stabilizer, although I'd like to know what kind of stabilizer you use, if you do.
I'm just comparing idea's. Thanks for your input. John
