Kleen Diesel Additive

I just picked some of this up and am wondering....should I pour it in on an empty tank then fill the tank with fuel or fill tank then dump in the additive?

Thanks, i just knew you were gonna say that. Here's the thing...i have a replacement transfer flow 57Gal tank in the truck (Installed a couple years ago and love it) A tank of fuel lasts me about 45 days with everyday driving. I am leaving for an across the US trip in 39 days. I stupidly filled up and then remembered i wanted to try some kleen diesel but wanted to run a batch BEFORE i leave. Will it not be as effective if i pour in on a full tank and let it fix around while driving? or dare chance pouring in on empty and fill before i leave for a 6,000 mile road trip? Thanks for your help

Just curious why you should put in first then fuel up? I never really thought about it before and always poured it in after I got home from filling up.

There should be no difference whether you pour it in before/after you fill your tank...

actually pretty big difference......you put it in first it mixes as your tank fills,put it in after fill and it will slowly mix in as you drive around and you wont get an even mix.believe it or not but when you are flowing fuel you are creating a current that flows all the way around your tank causing a stirring action.

Add it anytime you want, the fuel moves around whenever the truck is moving. It will mix itself..................
