Mixing my own fuel additive

Ok guys i am thinking about mixing power service with two stroke oil to make a additive that has great diesel fuel lubrication plus the added cetane boost which my truck likes to be able to start like new so what do you think? i am mixing the two stroke oil to what dieselpowermag did for there 1997 powerstroke and the power service at its recomened dose will this hurt or help anything or am i wasting my time/money?

See that was what i was going to do but use my old 32 oz Pservice (power service) bottle fill it up with 11 oz of pservice and then 22 oz of two stroke oil and mixe so it is all in one bottle so at my gas station i can dump it in real quick and feul the tanks up and get out of the way the gas station is crazy hahaha but that is all the recommend amounts of pservice and 2-oil for 34 gallons

That's exactly what I do. I pre-mix at home, 3 parts 2-cycle oil and 1 part PS White. Then I add about 4 oz of that mix for each 3 gallons in the fillup; fillup is usu. about 24-25 gallons, so that's just about a quart of the elixir.

Note: make _sure_ it's Marine grade oil, and it says "ashless" on the bottle. I've read on several places that even the 'low ash" can leave stuff in the injectors.

Power Service does the SAME exact thing as 2stroke oil, but it also boosts cetane. Dont waste money on combining both.
