Two cycle oil is all the rage now.

yup. or just keep puttin in diesel. Or Bio-Diesel. THe bio will lube just like the 2 cycle. Google gas stations in your area that sell b1-b100. But i heard it smells like fries. And if your pockets are DEEP run some klotz. It smells awesome!!!

anyone ever run the sulfur additive that gunk makes? i just picked up a couple bottles to test it out. the funny thing is that it says its not emmisions compliant and not legal in some states on the back so that can only mean its good for the truck!:

yup. Trucks love sulfur. If you live in a treehugger state ie California there could possibly be fines if caught.

Yeah, I forgot to mention that I run B5 sometimes. I've got one station that sells it close to me. My truck loves it and then I don't use any additives, in the warm weather. With B5 in the cold, I run some additive to boost the cetane rating for easier cold starting.

2% Bio added is all that is needed for lube and cleaning.

i dont have any access to the bio diesel. was told that lucas fuel additive works as better than 2 cycle oil. just want some more opionions on this before i start putting anything in the tank.. i have not even put any oil in the tank yet. if i go to the 2 cycle oil which is best, put it in before or after refueling?? or does it matter???:shrug:

dump in 1oz. per gallon before fill up so it will mix properly. I bought some 16oz. bottles and will just dump that in. I usually fill up 18-20 gallons at a time so I am a bit under the 1 per 1 ratio.
