I use about half the bottle for storage over the winter and the whole thing for a good cleaning of the fuel system.
I think you only really need to use a couple oz. though.

Thanks T-man, I don't want to say I am going to store it for the winter but it will probably sit more than it is rode. I will ride on days I can but nasty weather isnt for me when I have a nice Silverado in the driveway with a great heater and seat warmers ..

I use a 1/3rd of the bottle in the tank and add a couple of ounces in the crankcase.

Yes. Says so on the bottle. Don't add too much. Treats 8 gallons, so the crankcase only holds slightly less than 4qts. I add it the day or so before I change oil and filter.

I do the same.

In my truck I use a full can in the oil about 2000 kms before it comes due for a change. The instructions don't say anywhere to use for 5 minutes then drain, like most products designed for flushing out the system.
