Fuel additive, different question

I've started using Diesel Kleen (white bottle) since it's gotten cold. Really helps with cold starts. My thing is I top off ever night (or fill up every 2nd night). If I top off with say 11 gallons, how much do I need to add? Do I add The 8 oz. for 25 gallons or do I just put in 4 oz?

I've been trying to read up on it. Saw that diesel kleen doesn't do lubricity so I'm probably going to get some supertech also to throw in there. I've been driving back and forth work with the truck while my mustang is down and that's 200 miles a day in traffic so I figure a little lubricity wouldn't hurt.

As one guy equated it...sounds like a skeleton jerking off in a metal filing cabinet.

I run Diesel in my tank... have been for over 15 years... Weird, I pull up to the pump, put diesel in it and drive.

Never had an injector failure, the ones in my truck now have over 400k on the bodys... Been rebuilt twice to go bigger, but no wear was out of spec.

Diesel, oh and a good fuel filter...

I was mainly trying to get better cold weather performance (like easy starting) because I can't plug my truck in at this apartment. It helped.

Thats funny. I just tried the Supertech last week, my engine did quiet down quite a bit. I like it, I put 1 quart to 1 empty tank and filled it with 24 gallons.
