bad MPG's after useing Diesel Kleen, anyone else?

The last few tanks I have run have had crappy mileage, the only reason I can come up with is because I recently used the Power service Diesel Kleen. Any other things you might guess would cause this?

Ouch! When is the last time you changed your fuel filter? Any fuel leaks or extended idle times?

I use this product but the white bottle and I have not seen any change. Use it in both my trucks.

I just used the white bottle of Deisel Kleen, and didn't not see that. I did however recently read that the biggest robber of mileage is under inflated tires! Just food for thought?!

I just got the truck a few months ago, Have not changed the fuel filter, and its does idle for around 10-15 min in the morning sometimes. I guess the idle might do it. Do you think the fuel filter might do it? thanks!

diesel kleen is the best, I use a fuel bottle in every tank, its supposed to treat 100 so 35 just makes it better, runs smooth, good milliage, easy starts.
