Mainly used to add some lubricity back into ULSD.

If you go up to the "Google Custom Search" box under the ORG logo, type in "2 stroke oil"- You'll get a list of threads that discuss it. Usually one oz of oil / 1 gallon of diesel.

It's hit and miss for me. Good for the lubrication of the injectors. Seems now my 2006 doesn't like the 2 stroke MPGs drop off a tad.

I think the 2 stroke oil worked better in the 7.3 engine than the 6.0, i use diesel kleen.

Yea....my 2004 LOVED Power Service and 2-stroke though. I use it now but not nearly as often as before.

Best lubricity additive is a little biodiesel. 1oz to a gallon with 2 stroke oil is overkill. When I do use it (not often) I add 20 oz to a fill up of my long bed tank (38 gals). The ratio is 200:1 IIRC.
