Question low sulfur = add oil to fuel??!!??

My friend was telling me how he compensates for the low sulfur in the diesel nowadays. He said he adds a little two-stroke oil (mix for w/ gas) and it makes up for lubrication which the lack of sulfer creates. has anyone on here tried it in there PSD? It makes sense to me but I could see the oil (even a little ammount) clogging stuff like injectors.

What about adding power service to your fuel. That stuff is supposed to help lube and boost your cetane numbers. Also I know a guy who puts a litre of new motor oil for every tank of fuel in his cummins to help deal with the ulsd.

I have used Howe's diesel additive straight at the 4 oz. per tank (15 gal.) in summer and mix either Howe's or Power Service with two stroke injector oil at 50/50 for use during our cold (-40) winters in Alaska at a rate of 8 oz. per 15 gallons. This is with No. 1 diesel which has very little lubrication just like ulsd does. I have 178350 miles and the engines is running strong.

I have been using 2 stroke oil as was stated above 1 once per gallon, and I noticed a quieter engine. 2 stroke is designed to be burned in combustion so it has been working for me. I don't notice any power gain, but I do notice about 1/2 mpg gain. plus the quieter engine tells me this is working well. no more noticeable smoke either during regular running. I have been doing this for about 25k with no issues, but then I also have a 7.3
