Adding 2 stroke oil to my fuel

I thought I would let you guys know I have been adding Super Tech 2 stroke oil to my fuel at 1oz per gallon of fuel in my last few tanks. I have noticed the injectors are quieter and I have gained over 1 mpg.

Before I started using 2 stroke oil I was using the Motorcraft Centane Boost. I did not notice much of a difference with the centane boost. I think the 2 stroke oil is better.

2T oil

This is an interesting idea - what made you think to try it?

I add one oz per gallon of fuel that I fill up... so if I run the tank way down, then yes.

The cost trade off doesn't compute for me.

They tested this in the big long fuel additives read up on Tank's Library on here. It showed something like.... 136 microns less wear adding this to your fuel.... I dunno. I used to run it. And it didn't rattle as loud when I did so, I figured it was helping enough. Just me though.

Well, considering the mileage I have.. and the beating I put on my truck, plain diesel is fine. I'll add Diesel kleen if the weather gets real cold, but that's about it.

I'm not bashing the idea of oil, I know it will work to a degree.. but the cost trade off doesn't add up. And to the people who run "used motor oil" or "used ATF".....

That's just stupid.
