I got tired of leaky bottles so I use 32oz gatorade bottles. Convient because that is how much I use per tank and they rattle around the tool box leak free unlike the diesel keen bottle I did use.

Bulldog84, the next time you're worried about running oil in your fuel just remember a common nickname for diesel engines, "Oil burners." Not only is it fine to run a certain amount of oil in your fuel, it's highly recommended. I'd love to run off-road fuel in my truck to get the sulfur content back. The oil, in the right dosage, is better for the injectors than straight ULSD. This emissions stuff is getting so strict that it's going to be hard to make an engine with any longevity to it anymore. If you're concerned about your injectors just keep your fuel filters changed and run Supertech TCW3 oil in your tank along with a cleaner of your choice everyone once in a while.

No it wouldn't hurt, get the super tech 2 stroke.ASHLESS blue jug stuff @ walmarts. run it 1oz. per gallon. i've been doing it for a couple of years, i've got nothing but good things to say about it. I measure mine in a old lucas fuel additive bottle, it has oz. marks on the side.

I just made my first purchase of 2 stroke super tech oil at wal-mart. I'm going to wait to refuel then add it. What about if the truck sits for a while will the oil settle to the bottom and hurt the engine? I have a company vehicle that I drive alot more than my truck.

The truck can and will run on straight 2 stroke oil and nothing will happen negatively. Remember some brave souls run waste vegitable oil, veggie oil, tranny fluid (new and used) and waste motor oil straight. Not that I'd do that stuff. A diesel will run on a lot of different fuels one of the bennies of diesel ownership.
