Honda Pressure washer detergent

I have a Honda GCV 190 (which I love btw) .
When I bough it a year ago, I bought the ZEP detergent to clean things with. I actually used it for vehicles and it's done fine.
But they don't make it anymore.
Today I bought some 'Krud Kutter' from Lowes.
It says to dilute it.
Can I just pour it directly into the pressure washer dispenser? Is it 'diluted' when I turn the nozzle to soap and it's dispensed?
If not, what kind do I need to get? For general cleaning and to spray the vehicles off every now and then.
Thanks.

It gets diluted when it goes through the wand, but I don't know the ratio.

Personally I never use the siphon feature on my pressure washer. I prefer not to run the chemicals thru the pump plus I have better control of the cleaning agent by applying it with a pump up garden sprayer. I can see where using the siphon feature might be nicer when cleaning vehicles but for everything else I don't think it does as good of a job as applying the cleaner separately.

I sent them a message in their Facebook page. Below is the answer I received.
Great question, Mark. The pressure washer will dilute the product for you. Simply pour Krud Kutter Vehicle and Boat Pressure Washer Concentrate directly into the reservoir!
