1.)  Do you buy15W-40 Diesel Oil from Fleet Farm or Farm & Fleet in the
Madison, WI area? or other retailer?
2.)  And where do you buy the Lucas additive?  Weaver?  Auto Zone?  What
quantity of additive is added to each 5.3 (?) quarts of the diesel oil

Amsoil sells a case of 12 quarts for over $125.00.  It has what seems to
have a substantial additive of Zinc.  But that's a high price to pay for 3
gallons of oil, even though many of us only do one oil change per year.

Did I do this "trimming" of your previous message correctly?

I'm getting very weary (as you seem to be) of wading through volumes of
copies of copies of copies of verbiage to get to a posted answer or comment.
