adding oil when fueling???

I guy i work with told me that i need to add a quart of motor oil everytime i fuel up. It sounds like crazy talk to me but he was saying the reason you do that is to lube the injectors. How true is this or is he just talk out of his you know what????

truth and fiction.. most people dont use plain motor oil, many members(including myself) put a quart or so of 2stroke(ashless, walmart has it cheap) in, very lubricating stuff that is, plain motor oil in itself isnt quite as.. theres many choices for additives.. but ya. hope that helps you.

I use Amsoil Outboard 2-stroke, 1 oz per 3 gal of diesel, don't use it everytime, but it acts as a top cyl and inj lubricant.
