Stanadyne is great

I run stanadyne right now and it works awesome. And judging by the stuff put into stanadyne and mmo I would take stanadyne any day. To be honest I think mmo would wear down your fuel pumps faster. I just order stanadyne from geno's garage online. I am pretty sure if you are using mmo you might as well put paint thinner in your fuel. So ya not to be an ***** but i would be afraid to use mmo. I dont know a whole lot though so maybe if some other tdg guys chime in they might be more informative. But I have learned a little (2 lift pumps and a couple hundred dollars later that is)

I know I am a Ford but if I may... Stanadyn is awesome stuff. I have been running it in my PSD's for years. Just make sure you stay away from anything that lists itself as anti-gel. You MPG will crash big time. If you want the best in lubrication, use 2 stroke oil. Match it 1oz/gallon or a tick more.

I use Marvel every tank because that's what keeeps my injection pump running. Now will it wear down a fuel pump? I don't know my fuel doesn't work, but I don't know what wears down a fuel pump. So you might be on to something. Is it like running paint thinner, unlikely. As for Stanadyne, diffently good stuff. But too expesive to run I think. Stanadyne does the same for me that Marvel does, for me at least.

I use MMO every tank with a little PS grey for cetane.

Woodyjustin42, Please offer some back up to your claim of of MMO being similar to paint thinner as well some sort of documentation supporting the concept that using MMO " will wear down the fuel pump".
I mean if all this is possible I wil cease using MMO immediately and switch to the almighty stanadynes, which I don't doubt is good stuff just nearly impossible to find where I live.

Courtesy of TDG's Mopar1973Man, here is a link to extensive info on various fuel additives. There is a material safety data sheet for MMO, it is essentially paint thinner.

Well MOpar 1973 man took care of the documentation.

Sorry if I came off as cutting mmo down, didnt mean to. If it works for you use it. Just in my experience with diesel's the things in mmo would scare me to use it. You can look at the msds sheet and make your own educated decision. As for any documented proof of it wearing stuff down I dont have that. So not to bash mmo or anything, I am just saying after seeing what is in it I would not use it. As for stanadyne you can order it off any number of online shops. I usually order about 10 bottles at A time.

one more thing

As far as 2 stroke oil goes for lubrication, I dont think you can beat it. Plus you definitely cant beat the price. Just make sure you dont use synthetic 2 stroke.

You beat me to it ....

I've been running 2 stroke for about the last 8 or so tanks and it DEFINATELY sounds a lot better !! Just having the piece of mind of knowing that my engine is well lubricated is priceless.
