4 hours is probably too long. The average activity curve on Humalog burns 
60 - 70% in the first two hours and most of the rest in the next hour and 
a half. Extending delivery to 4 hours means you have a 5- 5.5 hour 
activity. I would bet your meal is long gone by 4 hours. You might want 
to shoot for an activity period that ends when you think the food is 
entirely digested, bearing in mind the activity of the insulin.
