Lubricity Additive Study Results

I thought this was the best place to put this.

Very interesting read from the Dmax guys.

I would liked to have seen them test 2 stroke in a higher concentration, such as the 1oz/gallon that I use, but very good info nonetheless.

Re: Lubricity Additive Study Results

I read that at TDG. Too bad they did not use the ratio we use for the 2 stroke oil. They went to 200:1 and we use about double that amount. Just shows that the oil works but might even work better with more oil used.

Talking Re: Lubricity Additive Study Results

I agree on the used oil idea, I know a few guys driving big trucks and they put used oil in everty time they fill up. Just don't ever use trans fluid, I heard a story the other day. guy put it in his and got stoped for something, dot guy diped his tank and said he was running off road diesel because the stuff was red. I don't know if he got fined, butthat would be fun to explain. Just think of it as oil recycling and preventive maintence all in one package.

I will never add anything to my fuel that was not meant to combust. Also I would never run used oil with any truck that is HEUI or common rail. I dont want metal shavings getting by the filter and into my injectors.

Re: Lubricity Additive Study Results

Used lube oil combusts just fine in diesels. I've seen it used in up to 15% lube oil concentrations.

I would recommend filtering it some, though.

Yes it will combust just fine but even if you filter it you will still have the trapped soot and other stuff just waiting to be released.

Re: Lubricity Additive Study Results

Soot is not the problem. Soot is graphite and has lubricating properties even as a solid.

I would recommend at least 5 micron filtration to keep metallic particles from damaging injectors. 3 micron or 1 micron would be better.

Re: Lubricity Additive Study Results

If soot was not a problem then why does the oil we use keep it from becoming a solid chunk I just wouldn't put anything in my fuel system and most of all the injectors that didn't need to be there .
