Default Howes Lubricator Diesel Treat: Good/Bad/Indifferent?

I can get this stuff relatively cheaply at the local Menards- about $15 for 1/2 gallon (treats 160 gallons at 2x dose).

Anyone used it before?

The container kinda sucks, but the price is appealing- especially if I have to add it at 2x or 3x to keep driving.

Claims to be ULSD and DPF safe, no harm in overuse, no alcohol and more on the label.

I have used it in my one 2011 Sprinter which has over 500,000. It seemed as though it began to idle ruff due to dirty injectors. I used a bottle of Howes over a couple tanks and cleared up. But what are you expecting it to do for you?

If my no-start problems are fuel related, I just want the product to work. Any other benefits would be a plus.

It claims to be pourable down to -20F, which is better than the Amsoil additive and Power Service if memory serves me right. Amsoil says not to store it below 0*F.

No label claims for what the gel temperature drop is supposed to be- Amsoil says 20 degree change in gel temp.
