B1 and B2 is biodiesel.....it will say ULSD if it is ultra low.....that is when you need the 2 stroke oil.

ULSD is 15ppm or less sulfur. Here in the states it is law (i belive) to have it listed on the pump. Cuz in 1994 it was dropped to 50ppm LSD to meet emisson standard and trucks were built to run em. So now the lower diesel provides less lubing to injector, vavles cuz slightly more noise. By adding 2 cycle oil (ash-less) it lubercates more. Some see MPG improvments i think its the fact that after puttin some in the tank you really watch how you drive giving yourself better MPG. Just my .02

2-stroke is great. Yesterday I had my truck parked and running, a friend of mine pulled up with his same rig and it was considerably louder, I could not believe it. The truck seems like it runs smoother, and def. quieter. It's only my first tank too.

Are there any benefits using 2 stroke over a fuel additive? I use power service and I think it works great. For what I pay for it it's actually cheaper than using oil.
