You're better off adding it to an empty tank, so it will mix better when adding the diesel.

Nope, off the shelf food grade (non hydrogenated) oil is plenty clean and filtered. I don't think it's going to break much lose either.

Never ran less than 50% so I'm not sure if you'll hear a difference. But the addition of 1% VO will add enough extra lubrisity.
