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

This topic has been covered many many times on here. Just search transmission fluid and see what pops up.

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