Pressurized CO2 and Excel,do I need both?

Do I still need to dose Excel if I am injecting pressurized CO2?

You don't "need" it, but IMHO it's really meant to be used with CO2 injection. It definitely won't hurt.

As long as you don't keep the few plant species that are sensitive to Excel, you'll be fine.
Excel does work as an algicide, but Seachem isn't allowed to market it as such.
