2 cycle oil

I just read a post that mentioned 2 cycle oil being added to the tank.

I normally put in half a bottle of diesel klean on evey fill up. Can anyone tell me the benifits of running 2 cycle oil?

2 stroke oil

All the benefits are listed elsewhere in this forum. I have a 1997 F350 with 780,000 certified miles on it . Last year I noticed a power loss and an annoying increase in engine noise. Saw an article about the use of 2 cycle oil and have been using it ever since. My engine is much quieter and my power is back. The truck is completely stock. Just my experience.

2 stoke oil has a few benefits due to one reason. Lubrication. The ULSD fuel that we are running now doesn't have anywhere near the lubricity of the LSD. This causes increased injector noise, lower mileage, and added wear on your fuel system. The 2 stroke adds some lubricity, and since 2 stroke is designed to be burned, its harmless. It mixes very well with diesel fuel, and helps counteract these problems. If you decide to try it, make sure its ashless 2 stroke oil (TCW-3(I use super-tech brand outboard 2 stroke oil from walmart)) and mix in 1 oz per gallon of fuel.
