Walmart outboard 2 cycle oil still considered safe for diesel fuel

I am considering adding some to the tank. I was thinking of adding one of the little bottles per tank full and just want to make sure it is still considered safe. I have not revisited this topic since about 2 years ago. I had a idle knock, coincidentally, start shortly after trying some of the 2 cycle oil. I realize it was just a coincidence, but I want to make sure that this stuff is still in favor for lubricity in a 7.3. Thanks.

I buy the walmart brand by the gallon and keep 2 8oz containers in the truck for fill ups, and never had a problem yet

One word of caution, most small engine 2 cycle is not tc-3w and therefore not ashless. 2 cycle that is not ashless can leave deposits.

Re: Walmart outboard 2 cycle oil still considered safe for diesel fuel

My experience after 100k miles......1oz to every gallon works great and quiets the injectors. Recently pulled the heads and the injectors. Both very impressively clean.

This thread isn't about 2 cycle engine oil for 2 cycle engines (i.e. chainsaws etc.). It's about adding 2 cycle engine oil to our diesel engines to aid in fuel lubricity.

For that purpose, both the type of oil and ratio you recommend are totally unnecessary.

The Walmart TC-W3 stuff is great. Google "Diesel Fuel Lubricity Study", 2 cycle oil came in second *or so* only to biodiesel.
