How to run tcw-3 as additive?

Alright so i have been reading through forum after forum on all additives an i have tried my fair share and have been using additive religiously. I have read and seen that some are using gray bottle diesel kleen with super tech tcw-3 ashless. My question is how best to do this and what for quantity. I want all that lubricity back in the fuel (that should be there! damn ULSD). So how do i use tcw-3 and/or with diesel kleen?

What I've done is add one ounce per gallon for TCW-3 and follow the DK instructions.

That is about what i do for tw-3 also.
I just kinda ballpark a quart per fill up.
Not rocket science on my part! Lol

i have read a few post about users doing gatorade or other 32 oz bottles making a mix of the diesel kleen with the tcw-3. sounds like a best of both worlds mix. any thoughts or direction on with that concept?

I think 1oz per gallon is too much. I do about 15-10 oz per 38g tank. Especialy since there is residual gallons in the tank, depending on when you fill up.

Interesting - I hadn't heard of that, but I'm sure you could do a mix of the two for a total of 32 oz.

I'm running 1oz (Amsoil HP injector) per gallon of new diesel I pump in. So if I know I'm only needing 10 gal, then I dump 10 oz in before I pump.. I also run Amsoil concentrate as well, per directions on bottle.

I have the small fuel tank on my SWB, and I add 12oz twc-3 per fillup. (Roughly 1/2oz per gallon average)
