Cool 2 cycle oil

Has anyone mixed 2 cycle oil with their fuel in a LB 7? If so have you noticed any difference?...

Once. I prefer ATF, it up's my MPG's by about 2. Both help lubricate.

ATF is that Automatic Transmission Fluid? If so how much @ each fill up?

I ran the supertech 2cyl (wallymart) oil as it is ashless. I did this a few times and ran it at 1oz per gallon of fillup. It may have just been me but it seemed to make it run a bit smoother and the noise seemed to go down.

Sounds like it's workin out for you Malf.:Thumbup:

I use the Wally World stuff too. It made my HEUI engine run a little bit quieter, start up easier, and so far, seemed to have gained 1/2 mpg (haven't quite seen the gains that most people claim).

BTW, you shouldn't use ATF in the fuel. It is not meant to combust, 2-cycle oil is. I've read this in many places. Just thought I'd share.

My friend {a menchanic for 30yrs} told me to run ATF and avoid the 2stroke oil. Another friend runs strain hydrolic oil part of the time. No diesel :Thumbup: . Just what a couple of very experienced guys have done and told me.

Back in the day of the early diesels...ATF probably did work ok. I don't think the injectors then have the tight tolerances the injectors of today have. Plus...I wouldn't want to explain to Mr. DOT why my fuel looks red and that yes...its only tranny fluid and not un-taxed red fuel.

Any kind of RED DYE fuel is ILLEGAL...

It doesn't matter if its ATF, RED 2 cycle oil, etc.

As for performance... I gain HP/TQ and MPG numbers with the proper use of 2 cycle oil. The ratio you want to keep is 128:1 ratio or 1 oz of oil for every 1 gallon of fuel.

As for ATF its got several chemicals in it that will not burn and also it contains ash. So it will leave a deposit on the inectors and pistons. It will cause problems later on...

2 cycle oil is ashless and will not leave depositis like WEO, New engine oil, ATF, Hydralic fluid... Etc...

I'm also a mechanic, and that is the old school way when it was just dyed mineral oil which is fine, the new stuff is not, therefore not the same.
