Question 2 cycle oil?

Is it ok to add like 2 oz. of 2 cycle oil to a tank of fuel to increase the lubricity of the ULSD. I think I read about this somewhere but I am not sure. Thanks Everyone you are always a gret help.

I would say just do without for awhile rather then risk any problems with the 2 cycle oil. I really don't know if the oil is a good or bad thing, so hopefully someone else will chime in and give you a definitive answer

There's a lot of guys drop in a quart of 2 cycle with every fill up... I've never used it so I can't advise you of the pro's and con's, but I know a lot of guys swear by it.

A friend of mine has an 04 Duramax LB7 and he adds 1/2oz per gallon of fuel. His tank is 30gal. so he adds 16oz of 2-stroke oil for a fill up. I on the other hand have used Power Service for years and has had good luck with it. But I'm always open for new ideas and suggestions, I'll let the other guys try it first tho....

There are alot of guys that swear by it helping with the lubricity. But i read a study somewhere that an engine that burns 2 stroke oil puts out worse emissions in one hour than the average vehicle does in a year.

If you do decide to do it make sure it is ashless from what i have been reading for your fuel systems sake

I have also read a bunch on this 2-stroke oil stuff, and A TON of guys swear on a 2MPG increase as well as a quieter motor. 1oz/ gal seems to be the most popular on the other forums I have read, I think I might give it a chance after all. I guess after you run a tank or 2 thats when the best results are noticed. And yes, Ashless is the key.
