Some random ovbservations adding 2 stoke oil

First time using Supertech. Ive heard good things about this, so I tried it. First, I didn't notice anything until I got on the hwy a few miles...the engine is more quiet, I def noticed that. Seems smoother at idle, and while rolling into the throttle. Something that surprised me though, I make this same 75 mile trip about 3 times a week, and the ambient temp have been the same, but on this one loop I take after 50 miles of freeway, I have to slow down enough for the TC to unlock, and then get back up to speed. But this time the fan clutch disengaged ALOT sooner than normal....which tells me its running cooler. A nice plus. This will be a part of my normal fill up from now on, its cheap, and effective, and can't hurt anything at 128:1 ratio. Also, there was no difference in MPG...no big deal though.

So you just added a quart of Supertech 2 stroke right into the tank after the fillup?

To ensure a good mix, I am going to add 16oz after about 16 gallons and then the other 16oz at full, and maybe a splash of diesel to wash it down the filler neck. I bought a handfull of the 16oz bottles for convienence, but they sell it in the gallon jug also.

I am a fan of this as well in my 7.3. I started with a quart and noticed a differance. Then I added almost half gallon and some diesel clean. Major postive differance.

It is not nessisary to run that much. I was just dealing with a motor that hasnt had anything but diesel ran through it since 1999.

Going foward I will put about a qt in!

$12.99 a gallon and yes it is fine. You can run a quart in your tank, you can run a gallon (might be a waste). If you have a 38 gallon tank, I would put 2 qts in. All good!


Remember, all this is doing is lubing your injectors (why they shut up on this). It doesn’t boost cetane, has no detergents, and will not help with anti gel. Just lube (which is the most important unless it is cold)

This is an affordable lube. I still think Opti Lube XPD is the best all round add.....I know everyone has their favorites, I just like the facts.
