2stroke oil???

What do you guys think of adding 2 stroke oil to our fuel I read something like 1oz per gallon and it's supposed to quiet the clack from the injectors and help with mpg's,,,honestly I'm happy with diesel kleen but I hear guys even mixing the 2. Any Input?

I doubt it would hurt it. After all, it's made to be mixed. Some of that stuff is expensive as hell. The Maxima 927 I used to run in my Banshee was like $11 a liter. I guess if you got it already.

some 2 cyl oils contain ingrediants that are not good for the fuel system. . lucas makes a 2 cyl oil thats safe to use, but honestly, save the money, d/k used on a reg. basis is all you need.

I have been running transmmission fluid for about 2 months now seemend to help out in millage some. I wanted to run soy as an additive, but I cant find it. Yesturday I bought something different b/c of an article in diesel power. It's called Power Service and suposed to be all around better by boosting cetane, lub injectors, proper detergents ect...

I would say you guys are better off running an additive designed for it. The 2 stroke is great for the older cummins guys and the 6.9 and 7.3 IDI engines.

But the tolerances on the newer engines are too tight to run something that is not meant to be run in it.

I run either Stanadyne or Diesel Kleen in the grey bottle. IMO the stanadyne is the better of the two.

One of my dad's friends sells oil to a International dealer, and the service guys told him to use 2 cycle oil as an additive. It doesn't matter what I use, I've never noticed a difference. I've used 2 cycle oil, lucas, power service, trans fluid, and other brands I've picked up at autozone. Nothing made a change in power or mpg's. I put something in there every few tanks anyway. I figure it can't hurt
