Fuel additives

Hello I just bought a 2000 cc lwb and wanted to know if I should run fuel additives or not? I have read some people run 2 stroke oil but wanted to know if I need to use any and if so what type.

Re: Fuel additives

I run 2 stroke, about 1 oz per gallon. I just dump a quart is when I fill up. 38 gallon tank, I usually fill up around a 1/4 tank. Close enough for me.

Re: Fuel additives

Run it with a biodiesel blend of at least 5%. It will do better and cheaper than 2-stroke.

Re: Fuel additives

Here is a chart comparing the lubricity levels/effects of some diesel fuel additives. Although this is only comparing lubricity, it is a very important factor in ULSD fuels. Pick an additive that has good lubricity results, a water dispersant, cetane boost and a detergent. If in cold climates an anti-gelling agent.



The full report can be found at the pdf attachment at the bottom of this post.


Here is a link to some additional good info on diesel fuel additives.
