Lubricity Additive Study Question

In Arlen Spicer report "DIESEL FUEL LUBRICITY ADDITIVES STUDY RESULTS"

Arlen found that bio-diesel was best In the order of performance.
1) 2% REG SoyPower bio-diesel
HFRR 221, 415 micron improvement.
50:1 ratio of baseline fuel to 100% biodiesel
66.56 oz. of 100% biodiesel per 26 gallons of diesel fuel

Here is my question....... B99 bio-diesel is available here in Santa Cruz. B99 is 99% bio-diesel and I wonder if Iíve done my math correctly if I compute the amount I need to add per gallon of petro-diesel. Using online conversion caculators, I come up with adding 2.54 oz of B99 to the fuel tank for each gallon of petro-diesel added to the fuel tank. Does that sound correct?

Math looks good! Keep in mind that the experts say that you will get similar results in lubricity benefit with as little as 0.5% bio. This would be about 0.6 oz per gallon, much easier to carry around. SPICER
