Yah do a search & you will find lots of info on ATF.

How is this guy running it? Is he blending it with anything or running 100% ATF? If he is blending with what & what %? How many miles has he logged?

Be very careful what you beleive.

The government wants you to believe diesels must run on ULS D2 because you will destroy the world if you do anything else.

Just like that crap ethanol Missouri requires on all unleaded fuel except 91 octane or higher. Causing failed carburetors on small engines and motorcycles.

I only rarely run it as an additive. Very diluted too.
