2 cycle oil

Just for kicks, I threw a quart of 2 cycle oil in the fuel tank when I filled up the last time.

I was very sceptical.

Still not convinced.............

However; It seems like my injectors are quieter and happier. It seems like my motor is a little snappier. It seems like the tank is running out slower. It seems like my turbo is happier.

All of this may be placibo effect, but like I said before, I was sceptical.

I have about 500 miles on this tank now, just my initial feelings.

Re: 2 cycle oil

Yep, knew about the ashless stuff. Had to talk myself into it. But I figured with 238K on my injectors I could not hurt them. I will check out the other threads.

Thanks

Re: 2 cycle oil

Yep. I threw a quart in 32 oz in 38 gallon tank. Close enough for me. I usually fill up pretty close to 32 gallons, so a quart it is.

Talking Re: 2 cycle oil

I ran a quart last winter, and it did seem a litle quieter. Now with the Reg. return fuel system it might be interesting to see how much of a difference it makes. I got 18.4 MPG a couple weeks ago on a tank, so I don't know if I could Improove opone that.

Re: 2 cycle oil

This morning before filling up, I poured in 16oz of Amsoil HP Injector 2-Stroke oil that I had left over. And to be quite honest after driving across town and back. Pulling into the driveway and sitting listening to the 7.3 idle it did seem a bit smoother and quieter. I just might have to add 16oz every other tank along with Opti-Lube every tank. I just might be doing something right for once.

It has actually more than paid for itself for me so far in MPG gains.

Re: 2 cycle oil

It did'nt take a couple of tanks for me, I could hear the difference in like 15 seconds, it was almost like flipping a switch. I don't care about the MPG, that is a bonus, I already can hang with any 1/2 with a V8 unloaded MPG wise, and if you put a load on it I will kill any gasser. I am going to drive a full size pickup anyways, so why not drive a real one.
