I think the only problems you'd run into would be with the lmm's equipped with particulate filters... I would imagine 2 stroke oil would cause more soot, causing more regens...other than that, you could probably burn 50% 2 stroke oil 50% diesel and you wouldn't hurt anything...they don't call them oil burners for nothin...

Soon as I get my DPF delete done I'm gonna start mixing it in with every tank.

How much do y'all use?

Lube you take the sulfer out of diesel it will not lube as well my truck came out when it was low sulfer diesel 500ppm now it is ultra low sulfer diesel 15 ppm. I use 2 stroke and diesel kleen to help prolong my injectors.

Cheap added lubricant for the fuel system, injectors, and upper valve train. I run the power service for the cetane booster.

You can usually hear the difference when you begin running it too..

I run supertech oil in mine for 60K+ and have had no issues whatsoever. I usually run about 8 ounces per tank full. Seems to run smoother and quieter. Notice no significant change in mpg.

Usually run 5-10oz per tank, Some guys are running up to 1-2% 2 stroke oil. In my area all the diesel has some biodiesel in it anyway so we already get the benefit of some added lube but a little extra wont hurt.

As for which one to run? just get the cheapest stuff from wal-mart.

I run 2-stroke oil, and every once in a while i will put a quart of ATF in the tank. I also like stanadyne additive.

I put 1/2 to 1 qt of ashless 2 stroke oil in every time I fill up. It runs smoother, quieter and lubes the CP3 and injectors.
