Post How many Guys use it and how much?

How many guys use 2-cycle oil mixed in your diesel fuel? What do you use? How much do you mix in? Have you noticed any difference?
I have been thinking of trying this but wanted to get others opinion. Thanks

I know some fuels may be lacking in top end lubricity properties. Ive been using a little bottle of stanadyne in every tank for the past 6 months. I got a case of it in the garage. I consider it more insurance.

Man these fuel additive threads lately Seems like theirs a new one every week.

Anyway I run 2-stroke in my truck. Don't notice to much of a differance but I know its doing its job.

Anyway here is a link to a PFD that had the best fuel additives all tested. http://www.johnfjensen.com/Diesel_fu...itive_test.pdf
