Re: Cheepest Place to Find Stynadyne Addatives?

Is there a reason you want that specific additive?

I just use PS because they have it at walmart/truck stops.

I dont think its worth paying for shippimg on something like that unless you could find it for dirt cheap....but maybe Im wrong..?

Re: Cheepest Place to Find Stynadyne Addatives?

not sure if they are the cheapest, but i order my stanadyne performance and winter formula from www.thedieselstore.com

have heard some negative things about PS products lately

1. i don't think PS is alcohol free
2. something about how it dissolves instead of separating the moisture in the fuel so the water/fuel seperator is less effective with PS.

Alot of people swear by stynadne addative, and they make a wider selection of addative that are specific. I haven't hear of anything special about PS products but I do keep a bottle of 911 in the truck just in case.

Re: Cheepest Place to Find Stynadyne Addatives?

Look at this link. If you are looking for lubrication, go with something else. I use 2 stroke premix at 100:1. At that ratio the oil would move it to the #2 spot on that list. if you are looking for a cleaner you can use it a few times a year. But for an every tank additive, go with the 2 stroke oil.

I guess the results don't lie in that report. It's interesting that the wear number of just plan old ULSD does not met the recommended spec for lubrication requirments of engine manufactures. And Power Services still doesn't meet the requirement.

It's obvious that 2 stroke oil and Stynadne are right in the same ball park as far as adding more lubricity to the oil and it's obvious which one will be cheaper. It does how ever state in the PDF file that 2-Stroke oil is not compliant for ULSD required vehicles 2007 and newer and may damage the vehicle... not too impressed with that.

It also states that all the additive blend ratios came right off the bottle of the manufacture, but with 2-stroke they chose a ratio of 200:1 So obviously if you increase that ratio you are going to get better lubrication, kind of cheating don't you think? Although it should work.

Overall, I would think that based on this study 2-stroke oil with a combination of something like Stynadne Perfomance formula for all the other beneifits of an addative would be the best combo.

Anyone agree?

Re: Cheepest Place to Find Stynadyne Addatives?

With the DPF and commonrail injection you dont need to help out in the lubricity as they are designed to run with the lack of lubricant in the fuel. I dont know why the ratio in that test shows 200:1 as all who have ran it in their trucks run it at 100:1 because that gives the best results. As for mixing both? I would not. You are just thinning out the 2 stroke oil.

I can't see how mixing an additive on top of two stroke would thin out the two stroke

The amounts are so small that I wouldn't think they wouldn not affect each other, plus people run a lubricity additive and a "performance" addative frequently. I would imagine they are formulate to run together and not affect one another and the same concept should apply to the two stroke.

Of course I can't prove this one way or the other.

By running the 100:1 Two stroke what do you mean by better results, specifically with how the engine runs?

Re: Cheepest Place to Find Stynadyne Addatives?

Michael Nelson has done a lot of testing on this and has a site devoted to 2 stroke oil. He is a Cummins guy but his site has owners of all makes. Check it out and investigate. There is a ton of info on his site.
