2 cycle oil w/ #2 lsd?

Anyone do this? Any reason to do this? I have a supply of #2 lsd, for a little while anyway...Couldn't find anything about mixing 2 stroke oil and off-road lsd.

it wont hurt. but honestly ALL diesel being made now is ULSD even though they may say its LSD its because there is residue in the tanks still possibly so a tad more sulfur..

I put in 1/2oz to 1 oz of 2 stroke outboard oil found at walmart. Im in calif and they really over refine the diesel here so its very astringent with little lubercation properties.
It really makes my 7.3 run smoother and quiter..

is the tranny fluid ashless? The walmart tc-w32 cycle oil is ashless, very good stuff.
I could be wrong but dont think the trans fluid will lubricate the same way.

I've been running the 2 cycle stuff from Walmart, truck runs smoother and maybe just a hair quieter, I'll keep doing it now that I've seen and felt the difference. Still seeing if the mileage is improved, I usually get about 15.6mpg but the last fill up was 16.3mpg and that is not change in my driving routine

I just ran out, this tank I am running without 2 smoke oil.. LOTS more injector noise.. maybe other stuff.. I dont know, havent gotten a milage reading, BUT, IMO, I ran half a quart for a full tank, truck seemed to like the stuff, quited up nicely, and I beleive may have upped my milage ~1mpg... but its hard to say, I drive way inconsistant.

I was told tranny fluid is supposedly to clean out the injectors, not for lubrication.

I used 2-cycle oil from Walmart and have not tried out the tranny fluid route yet to know first handedly.

I have heard of guys running 2 stroke oil with their fuel. Some like it, some can't tell a difference. I think the only real benefit to it would be a little more lubrication. With a good additive like AMSOIL Diesel Concentrate Performance Fuel Additive (ADF) you are going to get the best bang for your buck. Not only will ADF lubricate it cleans injectors and restores lost horsepower because of deposits. It improves fuel economy up to 5 percent. It acts as a fuel stabilizer. ADF is alcohol free and helps protect against water. With ADF water can be removed easier and fuel filters are at less of a risk of being plugged.

Im not big on putting tranny fluid in with fuel. I have heard guys do it but using it can be dangerous because the exhaust gases can be even more harmful to breathe.

If I can get you more information about ADF or another AMSOIL product please PM, Email, or give me a call.

Thanks

trans fluid was also not designed to be burned. I ran kerosene with 2 cycle oil to clean my injectors.
