Latest in 2 stroke oil in fuel

Just tried this for the first time. I have been using the ford stuff and have always felt my injectors to be a bit noisy. Truck has always run well though.

I tried 2 stroke on my fill-up tonight and will see how it does with injector noise. Has anyone used it together with the ford cetene booster?

Anyone else using it in their 6.0?

Re: Latest in 2 stroke oil in fuel

This is somewhat relevant, somewhat useless info but I swear by Yamalube 2 stroke oil. I've torn down dozens of 2 stroke motors over the years and used PJ1, BelRay, on and on down the list in those motors and Yamalube is by *far* the cleanest burning.

Yamalube in diesel ?? This is the first I have heard of this. What all does it help do?

Re: Latest in 2 stroke oil in fuel

The use of 2 cycle oil is supposed to help make up for the lack of lubricity of ULSD.

Re: Latest in 2 stroke oil in fuel

I was just adding two cents as to the cleanliness of Yamalube in comparison to all the other 2 stroke makes out there. Carbon build-up was nearly nonexistent with Yamalube.

It's arguable whether or not you notice a difference when adding a quart per tankful, but hey.... Why not!

Re: Latest in 2 stroke oil in fuel

I'm interested in trying this out never have before. I know that when you winterize an inboard motor on a boat to get it ready for storage you can run some oil thru the carbs while the engine is running its smokes like all hell but protects the engine for months. Now does the 2 stroke oil in the tank for a 7.3 cause it to smoke more and how often should it be done?

Re: Latest in 2 stroke oil in fuel

The 7.3 is the biggest beneficiary of doing this. The issue was the sulfur, which in fuel oil served in a similar capacity as lead used to in gasoline, a lubricant. An unwanted side effect was that the lead caused retarded kids and the sulfur in diesel fuel combines with CO2 in the air and forms sulfur dioxide, which in turn becomes acid rain. So the tree huggers won as the years ticked by and sulfur content was dramatically reduced. But what about all the old diesels out there that were made during the good old days when this lubricant was automatically in every gallon of fuel purchased? Well, just like with the lead reductions, the government lied to us as they always do and claimed there won't be any noticeable effects and power or performance won't be reduced and blah blah blah. Is there a difference? Ask around

As far as how much 2-stroke to add, you'll find a hundred different opinions. People are also using transmission fluid, though I feel that since 2-stroke is produced with the intention of being combusted and transmission fluid is not I stay away from the tranny fluid idea. I'll dump up to a quart in a 35+ gallon filling, and never noticed any smoke in any of the motors up to and including my 6.4... Frequency of how often I do it ends up being a matter of opportunity - how often am I standing there pumping fuel and happen to see a container of 2-stroke rolling around in the bed of the truck or how often do I see a container of 2-stroke when I reach for the Power Service (I use religiously).

Don't worry about hurting anything. I've seen people dump 5 gallons worth of waste oil in a full tank of fuel and the thing ran it and as far as I know is still running

No extra smoke. I used to run a quart of atf with every tank in a 7.3l. Never had any smoke!

Re: Latest in 2 stroke oil in fuel

Actually, I like the 'fragrance' from adding 2-stroke to my fuel.... Makes me think I'm on one of the open class big bores
