My situation almost to a tee.  I was running 400 miles on the weekends back and forth to work but then got a local placement and engine doesn't get up to temp by the time I pulled into the office parking lot.  I just removed it all as I was buying my WVO and didn't need it anymore.

My son had a Dodge Ram with an 80 gallon tank on it and ran it all the time as most of his distances were long between places.  He purchased a new Ram with the newer Cummins diesel in it and decided to brew BioDiesel rather than filter it.  That way he can still make use of the equipment he has invested in and just will dump the product into the stock tank.  Maybe that is an option for you as well?

I bought 2 more 16oz boxes of the Gulf Wax - just  returned them back to walmart. 
Got the PowerService Gray (does 100gal) for about the same price as the 2 boxes of wax.

There are Chunks of wax still sitting at the bottom of my 2 gallon jug of diesel.    Gives me the creeps thinking about how my aftermarket fuel tank has no screen going into the fuel line.      I may add a little bit of wax during the summer, because I still have some,  but I don't think I'm gonna start adding it on every fill up to try to improve performance.     That wax, when solid,  sinks in diesel fuel and it might  build up in the bottom of the tank.

I think my 30-year-old 1.6TD likes the added viscosity the wax gives me. The cetane boost seems to be welcomed, too.

Has anyone tempted a 10% blend of filtered WVO to boost viscosity? Would that boost viscosity AND lubricity? I pretty sure it won't help cetane.

I think you got it correct.  WVO will make diesel thicker and add some lube but not add Cetane.  Cetane is what helps give diesel power.  It is the equal to octane in normal gasers.  More of that you have the more it will retard knock.
