Ashless 2 stroke oil. No ATF. 1oz to gal of diesel. I run it every tank. But I'm not sure if you can run it in a 6.4.

I thought that it ws just for the high pressure oil pump just to help lubricate it and no HPOP in a 6.4

2 stroke oil is on the fuel side of the injector. It has nothing to do with oil. Basically 2 stroke oil lubricates the fuel pump and the fuel side of the injectors. I don't see how it would be benificial in a common rail motor..

im having alittle missfire or skipping on my 6.0 i just changed oil and fuel filters. i think i might of gotten some air in the system somewhere. hopefully not my injectors. i will drain the frame fuel filter again and let it refill itself again. and i will run some 2 cycle engine oil through the fuel system. how much should i use?? one small bottle or is it ounces per gallon of fuel???

fuel lubricity is VERY important for a high pressure common rail system!!!!!!!!!! for the pump and injectors. very high pressures and very tight tolerances

That's why I'd only use a fuel additive on a CR system. But i'm sure there's still ppl using ATF/2 stroke.

ATF is a detergent. I would never run it in any engine that I cared about. Might as well add gasoline IMO.

Ashless 2 stroke oil has better lubricity qualities than most fuel additives. Power Service is the only parts store available additive I would run. But ashless 2 cycle is a great additive for any diesel

Just because something burns doesn't mean you should pour it in your tank. This isn't a post apocalyptic world where you need to scavenge for every drop of fuel.

SCT, no studs...yet, Dual OEM intake air filter housings, Banks intercooler & intake elbow, Banks exhaust system, Windrunner ported intake manifold, Bullet Proof Diesel remote oil cooler & thermostat, AirDog2 (plus a couple spares), Power steering filter (Amsoil dual-bypass), MagTec deep ATF pan, Electric oil pre-lub pump, Dakota Digital gauges.
