Diesel Kleen - Can you add too much?

At times I may run a little more than 1 16oz bottle per fill up (38gal tank )..because when I fill up at 1/2 a tank, I add more when I top off. Is this a problem?? can you add oo much?

Also since I always keep my tank full and use the silver bottle...what if I know I'm goin to the mountains where the temps can be 10-20 degrees at night...could I add a 16oz white botle of DK to prevent fuel jelling or is that too much??

Thank you in advance,
Mike

Good question. I am curious also. I know every once in a while I will fill a half tank with no additive in order to dilute the excess additive I have out in the tank.

I believe on the bottle it tells you to double the recommended amount for best results so I'm sure you can add more but I'd imagine eventually you would be adding too much?

You would have to add gallons per tank before you got close to adding too much. A 7.3 would probably run on the stuff - it runs on just about anything. The damage you are doing by adding more than the recommended amount is to your wallet.

Second the wallet comment.
I know that they'll run on nearly 100% Seafoam. That's from the "fill the filter with Seafoam treatment."

Living in Colorado, I have never used the white anti-gel formula and I've never had a single gelling issue. Having said that, I am pretty sure the winter diesel blend supplied here effectively prevents fuel gelling in cold temps.
