opti lube xpd vs Super Tech 2 Cycle oil

I've been using Super Tech 2 cycle oil for about 6 months now as an additive and there is a big difference on how it runs over ulsd. But has any one been using the opti lube xpd or switched from super tech to opti lube and noticed any difference?

Trans fluid didnt lube anything in your fuel system what it did was act like a detergent and clean stuff up. Trans fluid actually takes away from the lubricity of the fuel these days

2 cycle here, do not run tranny fluid.

2 cycle 1 oz. per gal.

Will help with lubricity, and noise. Supposedly will help with fuel economy, I did not see a difference.

Make sure it is ashless.

I use one oz per gallon of the 2 cycle and have never had a problem. roughly 16 oz each tank every fill up.

OK, yesterday at work i looked at all the diesel fuel addatives we sell and heres a short list:

-Power service diesel kleen
-seafoam
-howes lubrication
-diesel power!
-lucas
-B-12
-marvel mystery oil
-red line diesel catalyst
-FPPF fuel power
-GUNK sulfur substitute

obviously a few ounces of 2cycle oil or some tranny fluid is cheaper than those listed above. So has anyone used any of the commercial ones and noticed a difference?

When I got the truck I got a gallon of lucas and filled the fuel filter housing up when i changed filter and poured the remaining 3/4 gallon in the tanks. didnt notice a difference in the was she ran or mileage.

I'll run 6 oz of lucas in each tank every few fill ups. Sometimes it seems like it does something othertimes it doesn't. I think its all in my head.
