Hi,my name is mike and I will assist you with your question.
The issue that you are describing is there is a restriction in the fuel system and this likely came from the additive that you added to the tank. I don't believe that you need to replace the throttle body,however you do need a fuel induction service. The fuel induction service is the fuel system is connected to a machine and the entire fuel system is cleaned which will solve your problem.
