STARTED USING STIHL 2 STROKE OIL IN THE DIESEL? ?

hi there i know the 2 stroke topic is pretty worn out , but i am wondering about the ashless thing? im putting "stihl hp" thru mine, the red stuff, you guys in all the powerstroke forums keep going on about the marine 2 stroke ashless but i really cant see what diffrence it would make because when these engines were developed in the late 80`s and produced in early 90`s the sulfer in the diesel was really high and dirty, now that the fuel is super clean putting a small bit of contaminate back in shouldnt harm the injectors, i can understand the 6.0 turbo getting sooted up with burnt ash just because of it`s design with the variable fins getting stuck, anybody want to enlighten me?...gaz...

i think the purpose is to keep the injectors lubricated. ultra low sulfer diesel has very little oil content where as the old stuf had high contents.

lubricates the injectors, the sulfer used to do that, but most of it has been removed to keep the emissions down, for what im led to believe the fuel refiners put an additive in as a replacement which is ok for the high pressure common fuel rail engines but psd is low pressure diesel needs more lubricancey.. this is my understanding for what i have red... gaz

well, i do know that it is the natural parrafins found in diesel that offers the lubricity, the process that they use to remove the sulphur from the fuel also strips these parrafins out. I would imagine that the ashless 2 stroke is to control soot, i would imagine you could coke things up in there pretty good running non ashless.

the 2 stroke does not harm the truck as diesel is a refined oil, i was just wondering what the big thing is about the ash in the 2 stroke? after all after it is burnt and turns to ash it is on it`s way out past the turbo, im pretty sure with the heat it cant build up in the turbo? im just a bit miffed? about what the prob is?

I'll avoid the discussion about what it does....is it good...etc.

What I will say is I don't want anything RED in my fuel tank. Can cost you thousands of dollars!
