Random guys advice

So I was fillin up last night and a farmer in a Cummins can up to me and started bull****in a little about his truck and mine and long story short he told me that addin a quart of transmission fluid to a tank of diesel would help it run better by keepin the injectors oiled better. Does anyone know if there's any truth to this cuz I don't wanna eff my truck up but if it works it sounds like a good idea. He said the main reason it helps is cuz of diesel fuel bein such low sulfur now a days.

sent from my s3 while listenin to the sound of my turbo whistle

Ashless marine two-cycle oil is a better choice. Just as many threads on that topic.
