I would not use trans fluid, two stroke oil, mystery oil, chocolate, peanut butter or anything that is not made specfically for the fuel system by a reputable company. You start getting into viscosity problems and coking on the tips of the injectors. The older injectors that had huge holes in the tips and were mechanically operated could tolerate some of the oils and fluids that somebody heard that Billy Jo Bob used and it worked good, but todays injectors are a much different story. I would suggest you "just say no" to anything but a true diesel fuel additive, and read the label on those.

If a country does not remember and honor its fallen heroes of the past, in the future that country will not be honored or remembered.

G.R. Wemmer

A veteran is someone who, at one point in his/her life wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America' for an amount of 'up to and including their life.' That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.
