ATF? Automatic Transmission Fluid? I think most people will warn you off adding ATF with the VP44 due to the friction modifiers in ATF which in effect result in less lubricity.

Most are adding 2-cycle oil at 128:1 ratio to increase lubricity of the fuel.

I'm not sure about adding ATF either. The fact that its red...and would most likely add a red tint to your fuel...would make it very difficult to explain to Mr. DOT that you aren't running untaxed fuel...but added ATF.

128:1 ratio is that to a full tank of fuel? I am curious about this is there more reading on this somewhere?

ATF stands for automatic transmission fluid.. Could you please be a little more descriptive?

Are you asking if you can put ATF fluid in your fuel tank?

He is right, treating your fuel with ATF will kill a VP44 in about 20-30k miles. Use Marvel, it's the best, I've tried everything with Marvel being the holy grail of fuel additives.
