I've heard as little as an ounce and as much as a quart per fill up. I wouldn't go as far as a quart but there's a range for you. sorry I can't be more help than that

Sold 2001 f250 ccsb 4x4 400/400, dual terminators, swamps 80mm bfh, headers, bts and all the usual supporting mods. 715hp fuel only.

1oz of two stroke to 1 gallon of diesel. I use it periodically and it sure bumps my mileage and quiets my injectors down.

While I was reading on this subject awhile back I remember someone saying that not all 2 stroke oil is created equal. There is one that will leave some sort of black residue. Is this BS or not? Just something to think about.

Get Red-line Oil RL-2. It's about $75 per gallon, but one ounce treats 20 gallons of fuel. Use it in every fill-up. It will make your truck very happy indeed.

Forgot to mention, you can also use Red-line Oil RL-3. Same oil, same benefits. Difference is the 3 has a cetane booster and you use one ounce per 10 gallons fuel. Same price per gallon but you use twice as much. I didn't see much notable difference between the two.

They both help to negate the effects of low and ultra-low sulfur.

Why not just use a good conditioner like Power Service Diesel Kleen? It has Cetane Boost and gives you a bump in mileage too. In the colder months it has anti-gelling properties too which I don't believe 2 cycle oil does.....
