So does the type of 2 cycle oil make a difference? We us Amsoils Dominator in our race bikes would that be ok to use in the truck?

I've been using it since your recommendations,...never had a problem, quiets the motor down,...and gives me some peace of mind, that maybe my injectors will last longer.


This thread reminds me of a thread I need to restart

I've been using 1oz/gal over the past year and it really seems to keep the injectors quiet. My brother started using it in his after having 6 injectors replaced and called me with a https://www.thedieselgarage.com/forum...es/biggrin.gif on his face. He could not believe how quiet his truck had suddenly gotten. https://www.thedieselgarage.com/forum...ilies/beer.gif

Yeah it will work fine... But I do think the petroluem products tend to do better on anti-gel ability over the synthetic types...

Here is my theory of the anti-gel abilities of 2 cycle oil...

Let me show a example here first. Let use water and saltwater as a example. So we all know that fresh water freezes at 32*F correct. Then salt water has a much lower freezing point. (Depending on how much salt is in the water) So now if you add 1 oz of saltwater to the fresh water you going to change the freezing point of the fresh water correct??? Of course....

But now if we switch water with diesel fuel and salt water with snowmobile 2 cycle oil. Diesel fuel has a pour point of around -20*F here in Idaho typically. (From the specs I'm finding on the suppling sites). Then 2 cycle oil has a pour point of about -40*F typically. So if you adding 1 oz of 2 cycle oil to 1 gallon of diesel fuel you should have the same reaction right???

Now as for synthetics most have got a really low pour point temp but... Most synthetic oils don't have pour point depressants because of the fact they don't contain parafin waxes... So in this light petroluem oils tend to do better for winter weather...
