16oz DK to 40 gallons of fuel on the bottle. I guesstimate I'm adding about 12oz per tank.

8oz to 32 Gallons is 512oz to 1oz ,or 1oz per 4 Gallons, its mathematically impossible for that ratio to aid (Stop) in matting surface wear?

Biodiesel at 5% is 6.4oz PG.

Yeah. I went and brushed up on the study again the other day. I was amazed that motor oil does nothing. You'd think a good dose of oil would add at least SOME lubricity. So much for common sense.

Fist time quoting my own post....
After 1/2 a tank with the additive, the black smoke is basically gone.
Especially after city driving, it seamed to load up. When I got on it on the highway it would smoke a bit. Personally hate the smoke. Only other thing I did was change the fuel filter 1/4 tank into the fuel add.
My turkey baster was too big to fit into the can to pull out 4 oz. Have to work on the measuring trick. Maybe just use a plastic graduated cylinder...?
