This might be a dumb question...2 stroke oil

So i've read on more than one thread of people putting two stroke oil in there tank. I'm not trying to start an arguement thread but I'd really like to know the reasoning behind this. Can someone fill me in?

The argument is that it's supposed to help replace some of the qualities (like extra lube) that is no longer in the ULSD. (And it's cheap)

Most (from what I have read) prefer to just use a specific diesel fuel suppliment, like Power Service. (My preference is Power Service)

It works fine mix it 1 ounce/gal. and use a ashless type. The Walmart brand Super Tech is popular for this use and is cheap.

Read this .pdf, it explains what happened to diesel and why you should have something in USLD because your engine was designed to use the "old" stuff.. (btw.. there's a LOT better stuff to use besides 2-stroke oil )

I put 2 quarts in every fill up . you figure in 38 Gal of diesel there are 152 quarts . So I am mixing mine 75 to 1 . Every 5th fill up I don't add the 2 stroke and instead add the p.s. diesel additive to kinda flush the tank so to speak . I have done this with my last 3 7.3 diesels with well over 400k miles combined with no issues .

07 F-250 Outlaw , Rough Country 6 inch lift , 37-13.5 R20 Nitto Mud Grapplers , MBRP 5" Exhaust , 08 Mirrors , S&B intake , 5% Tint sides and back , 35% windshield .

Yes I seen it and under stand this is the ratio used in their test but that does not mean 200/1 is the only mix ratio you can use. I would expect better results in the test using my 1 ounce/gal. or about 100/1 ratio. Might try the 200/1 though did pretty well on their test and on cost/ tank.
