Yep. Unfortunately, that was me. Still feeling the sting from that one.
At least in my case it wasn't totally unexpected. The 03-04 Common rail Dodges are kinda known to have injector issues. No one really really knows why. Some say it's the fact the injectors weren't engineered with ULSD in mind, while others say it's a lack of filtration.
Some people get lucky and don't have any trouble. Though my type of failure is documented by the Cummins Engineering team, mine failed in a different way than most go out. At least I got 102,000 miles out of 'em. Heard of some guys having to replace them at 60,000!

It's an old truck driver's trick. Supposedly it lubes the pump and injectors and changes the burn rate of the fuel for an increase in fuel mileage. There's a few threads on here about the use of 2-cycle oil and such as additives.
