OK guys, what are you accomplishing by putting 2-stroke oil in your fuel. I have heard of lots of additives but this one is new to me

Lubrication, that is all:drink

1oz per gallon of fuel, some use less though.

Half a quart per 26 gallon tank. Any more and its pretty much a waste and will smoke more.

Dont buy expensive crap, buy the junk at wal mart. Its good as any for what you are using it for....

I run it and motor is noticeably quieter, and runs smoother. Most likely is helping cp3 and injectors more than anything.

I'm gonna try the 2-stroke thing. You've all convinced me. Question.... I normally use Power Service additives, right now the silver bottle for the summer season. Do I / can I use the additive with the 2-stroke oil? Should I not? Should I use each on every other fill up, or does the 2-cycle oil cancel out the need for any additives? Thanks!

I'm also running the Power Service with 2 stroke. No problems what so ever. I don't run them at the same time, however. I usually alternate, and I'll also rotate in a tank without additives. This process gained me 1.5mpg last fall.

Personally I would not do it with the DPF intact.:drink

I read on another forum why, just do not remember. Someone will chime in with the answer.
