using diesel kleen

I recently purchased my first diesel 03 7.3L. A guy on my dept suggested i use diesel kleen and gave me what was left in his bottle. My question is how much should i be using and how often? Im sure the bottle might say it but the label on the back is wore out from being in a milk crate moving around in the bed of his truck. thanks for any info

If my tool box didn't have 2 foot of snow on it, I'd go grab my bottle and find out.

I use half a bottle per tank, it can last you up to 4 but for the price I just use it for 2 tanks, cant overdo it.

1 ounce treats 3 gallons of diesel fuel. I use the big bottle so I keep a 12 oz. Gatorade bottle that I use to measure. I put half in each tank at fillup.

wow two stroke oil?? How much of that do you use??? I have been using the silver bottle but checking it out at tractor supply online and see the white bottle of diesel kleen also not sure if the silver bottle is worth the extra cash.

I use the Silver Bottle during the warm months and the white bottle during the colder months. The white bottle is for winter use and has an antigel additive package.
You can pick it up at Walmart... its fairly cheep there.
Oh and a 16oz bottle will treat up to 40gallons of fuel.
