its difficult for me to say or work out, since I started using it pretty much from day one, so have nothing to compare against as far as improved milage.
Also, my thoughts about this is not to try and worry about any cost offset. Not using an additive I believe is detrimental for the injectors and general well being of the engine over a period of time, cost of any repairs, early injector replacement because of non use of additive would be far higher than the cost of a few ounces of additive per tank fill.

What he said.

When I run it I can definitely tell a difference in the smoothness in the way it runs.

I like it so far. I noticed a small difference in the smoothness of the motor.

I have been using it for a couple months in my LML. I concur with the others in that there is a noticeable improvement in smoothness and quiet. I have also noticed, however, a small reduction in performance. My quarter mile time slowed just a touch while using the 250:1 ratio.

DPF/SCR technology summarized in three words: It doesn't work.

I've been getting it from optilube and using it since I got the truck in April. I think it likes it and this ulsd needs more lubrication.
