2 cycle oil

I got a 2005 6.0 and read running tc-3w 2 cycle would help increase MPG and clean/ lube injectors and piston heads. Right now I dump diesel kleen every fill up. Thoughts or experience?

The 2 cycle oil will help with lubrication. That is about it. According to the information I have found, it will do nothing to improve MPGs because it does not boost the cetatane number.

I've run it, but I didn't really notice a difference to be honest.

I run 2 cycle oil and the only thing I have noticed is the injectors are quieter

Well I know for me I can tell a difference. I run it in a 7.3 and I don't know if I have an injector that's starting to go out but it makes them run a little quieter.

Never could tell a difference in my injectors when I tried it. The best lubricity additive available is biodiesl. A B5 (5% biodiesl) makes a huge difference if you can get it. 2% blows away any off the shelf commercial additive for lubricity and cleaning the system. It doesn't add anything as far a cetane though.
