It's trash. Only fuel additives that really have an effect are techron and seafoam.

How about the Lubro moly Diesel Hi-Test? There isnt anything wrong with my car, just a little sluggish...is that sufficient, or should I use both?

You purge with the purge and use the hi-test once in a while to keep the system clean. Do a search in the 126 forum for ‘IP purge.’ After cleaning the system replace the fuel filters – you’ll also find that procedure by searching the 126 forum.
