2 Stroke Oil as a Fuel Additive

First of all, I must give credit where credit is due: Mopar1973Man. He's the one who gave us the idea of using it. Second, I must also state that this is my attempt to get a sticky posted on the idea for people to read and understand the benefits and usage.

When I tried the idea in my truck, I, like many others, was skeptical of the idea. IT WORKS GREAT. Heres why:

The EPA all but removed the sulfur from diesel fuel a couple years back. The fuel that these trucks were designed to run on was low sulfur diesel (LSD), and contained 500 parts per million (PPM) of sulfur or a little less. Sulfur acts as a lubricant in diesel injection systems. Without it or some type of lubricant, premature wear and failure can occur. The current fuel we now have to run is ultra low sulfur diesel (ULSD), and contains 15 PPM of sulfur (a very high reduction. There are other additives on the market that are readily available, but with these, there can be a MPG loss. When I started using 2 stroke oil, not only did I notice a quieter, smoother running diesel, but I also picked up an honest .75 to 1 MPG, so its pretty much paying for itself.

The amount that I use, as well as many others, is a 1oz per gallon mix. The oil I use is Super Tech Outboard 2 Stroke Oil (TC-W3) The TC-W3 rating denotes an ash-less oil. Be sure to use ash-less.

The first time you use it, fill your tank with fuel, and add enough oil for the entire capacity of the tank. For example: you have a 38 gallon tank. Add 38 oz of fuel. After that, just add enough oil to cover the amount of fuel you add to the tank. Example: You add 20 gallons of fuel, then pour in 20 oz of oil, and you're set. Hope this helps people who have questions, and again, thanks to Mopar1973man for his efforts. :Thumbup:

I just use Power Service in the White bottle . It's like 1 dollar per Tank. The Two Stroke oil is three times that , at least here in Canada.
