In the context of the usage of those terms on this site, Marvel Mystery Oil and 2 stroke oil are two different things.

First the obvious, 2 stroke oil specifically refers to the oil products used to mix in gasoline for 2 stroke engines. Many owners on the site, myself included, mix 2 stroke oil in our diesel fuel specifically to increase the lubricity of the fuel.

For the less than obvious, Marvel Mystery Oil is kind of like the old tonics the traveling salesmen used to sell, didn't matter what was wrong with you, a few belts of their magic tonic would cure you. Marvel Mystery Oil suggests it is good for virtually everything automotive, including for mixing in diesel fuel. Use as a cab deodorizer is about the only thing the manufacturer doesn't recommend it for. Google it up is the best advice I can offer. Many use on this forum use it as diesel fuel additive.

Here is a material safety data sheet on Marvel. In short, it is paint thinner.

hmmm, reading that ingredients part makes me a little leary of wanting to try it. I use the stuff as lubricant for drilling metal, but thats about all. Just curious though, under the ingredients in the percent row it lists 0 for all three of those, whats up with that?

It keeps people from knowing the quantities of chemical so they can't make there own...

As for MMO... It not a oil at all... Try 2 cycle oil it works much better... Look at my signature I did 381/826 on 105:1 ratio of 2 cycle oil...:Thumbup:

Use two-cycle oil. It will most likely be cheaper, better for your engine,and who by god wants to dump paint thinner into their fuel? Not me.
REMEMBER do not use syn two cycle oil.
