any side effects? white smoke, clogged injectors? Why not? If its easier on the motor sounds good to me. I use Power Service in mine, maybe a little 2 cycle also would be good?

I run it is mine and the sound diff. is very noticeable. Make sure you run the tc-w3 mix one oz. per gallon of fuel.

It helps lube the top end of moter. ULSD is not as lubricating as old Diesel. If you use 2cyl I think the most important thing to look for is that it is an ashless formula?

Cheap ashless 2 stroke is the best bang for the buck. Getting fancy expensive oils isnt going to make a drastic difference for the price.

Powerservice is good for several things but not very good as a lubricity additive. I stopped using powerservice and began using 2-stroke oil from walmart about 250 gallons ago and it was immediately better in terms of engine noise with the 2-stroke.

Do it. You'll notice within the first tank. 1 oz per gallon.
