Using Techron Plus Fuel Additive In A Powerstroke?

I was wondering if anyone knows if this fuel additive is okay to use in our diesel powerstrokes. The bottle says absolutely nothing about use one way or the other in diesel fuel, and I bought a bottle to try to see if it fixes my sticking fuel gauge issue. It was recommended to give this a try for a sticking gauge because it may loosen up any deposits stuck on the fuel sending unit. It looks like it has some other good advantages as well. I just want to make sure it won't mess anything up engine wise mixed with diesel fuel. Thanks

Thanks, if thats the case, then I guess I'll switch it out at Autozone and try something different. What's the best thing to use they sell as a fuel additive?

Is it better to go with the white bottle w/ antigel or the gray bottle?. Don't know if it makes a difference, but I'm in MD and it's starting to get cold out
