B20 diesel & adding diesel kleen and oil

I found a gas station right by my house that sells B20 diesel for $3.79. I have read the good things about it. Currently I Am adding 1oz of 2 stoke oil to 1 gallon of diesel and also using the grey diesel kleen.

Should I keep adding this while using B20 diesel? I plan on using the B20 most of the time. Thanks

No need to add anything for lubricity with B20. I wouldn't bother with the Diesel Kleen either. The B20 will keep things plenty clean on its own.

I dont know if i got a bad batch of it or if my truck hates it. But when I run B20 from the pump my mileage drops a lot. Anyone else run into this problem? (I have only run one tank due to me being mad, nearly the same price as regular diesel)

I would probably run more than one tank to see what the MPGs do. I haven't ran a full tank yet but most people seem to be happy from what I have read.

Well i got about 140 miles to that tank hints why ive only run the stuff once. Maybe i will give it another try. No signs of power loss or smoke while running it, just really bad MPG's. Went back to regular diesel and went back to 260 miles to the tank.
