Yes, its becoming a popular thing to do for a lubricant supplement to ULSD and BIO's. I think the theory behind it is that the 2-cycle oil is designed to lubricate and to be burned in combustion chambers without ill effects.

My motto: Be nice, be polite, but have have a plan to kill everyone that you meet.

I take it ULSD doesnt have what the older diesels need.

It has to be TCW3 oil.....the Wal-Mart outboard engine oil seems to the popular choice.

Go to this site. I think he is kind of the father of adding two stroke oil to diesels.

Yes, this is correct. ULSD only has 15ppm, LSD had 550ppm. Sulfur is a natural lubricant (good for the motor..not so good for the epa). So obviously taking away lubricating particles isn't good, which is where putting 2-cycle oil in your fuel tank comes in. It keeps the cylinder walls lubricated (injectors as well on a powerstroke) then burns clean. My roomate has been putting 2-cycle oil in his '01 powerstroke for nine years and he swears by it. I try to put a bottle of it in every tank (esp since my motor gets beat like it owes me money every day).

You stay classy Diesel Garage

my 6L loves it. runs quieter and added right around .5 mpg. i especially make sure i run it with the winter fuel because it puts my mileage back to regular No.2 mileage numbers.

i'm kinda pissed, though - Wal-Marts [in my area, at least] quit selling the quart-sized 2-cycle and only sell the 16 oz'ers.

but i think o'reilly's still sells quarts.

Sweet. So next question, I see alot of people are posting that they use a marine grade 2stroke oil. Does it really matter whether its marine grade or not?

i believe that the marine grade is the cleanest to burn. it's also some of the easiest to find in larger quantities.

whatevery you use, it needs to be 'ashless'.
