Yep, that's why I run AMSOIL 2 stroke oil in my '02.

Is 2-stroke really the way to go? I have been running Lucas and Cetane Boost, but really like the idea of 2-stroke from what everyone keeps saying on here. I can get plenty of this anywhere around here. The Lucas gets really expensive.

Does 2-stroke risk injector damage or increase the risk of any failures? Have any performance or improved MPG claims been proven? I would not want to see anything happen as it's finally running perfect. I would hate to fry a VP or any injectors.

2 stroke pervernts injector damage along with pump damage and everything eles 2 stroke luburicats the injectors and the injection pump. Me myself i run ATF in ever other tank of fuel. Its just what i perfer u get more. I have ran 2 stroke 2 and really cant tell the differnce between that and ATF but your truck will no there is something luburcating. I get better fuel miliage with it also

working on my first gallon-O 2 stroke... my engine is insanely loud (2nd gen whaddya expect) how long should it take till It quiets down? if ever... I've heard it takes several tanks for the full effect then you can run it every other or so...
Not sure if 2-stroke is the cause or if it helped, but. This weekend I added it to my tank, I'm down to a 1/4 tank now... put on new air filter, changed oil at 7k, and a new fuel filter, and wow... Whatever did it or the combo, it put the demon back in my truck!!! none of what I replaced was in bad shape... just general maintenance.

Truckless, Carless, Homeless, Jobless
so I'm having a rough decade...... oh well.

Just a warning on using ATF in your diesel fuel. The modern day ATF's have friction modifiers that are not made to burn. ATF can also lead to premature failure of the injection system. Useing ATF is from the old days with mechanical injection systems and ATF didn't have the additives and modifiers like todays ATF.

The vp44 truck should definetly run something for more lubricity in their diesel fuel. The cp3 injection system was designed to accomidate the lower lubricity in diesel, no need for more lub. I have not seen any proof that adding 2-stroke does or will increase fuel MPG. I've read guys claiming it does but never experienced it in any of the three diesels I've owned, 1 vp44 truck and 2 cp3 trucks.

I have also read where guys that have torn down engines or replaced injectors after using 2-stroke have commented on how the injector tips were covered in a tar like substance.

My recommendations is to use a product thats formulated for diesel fuel.

Nothing wrong with using a tcw3 rated 2 stroke oil at all. A friend that has a diesel shop has been using it in diesels for years and nevr a problem. He also said he has not seen the inside of a motor after using the 2 stroke oil as they have yet to get one back in from a failure. I run it in my truck and about ever 7 or 8 tanks i run some diesel clean through it.. Not a problem and my vp truck is allot quieter and feels like it has a few more ponies..

Listen to what pwr2tow said about the ATF..... it is a HUGE MISTAKE to run it in your fuel.....

Go here and check it all out for yourself... several days worth of reading here .......
First Time w/2stroke Oil

Pay particular attention to what Mopar1973Man, WorkHorseDiesel, & Dorkweed have to say... IMO, of course...... :thumbsup

I have been running 2 Cycle for over 20 K miles ... my old truck has never run better!
No question about. I quit using any other additives about 11 or 12 K ago.

Just Wal Mart Super Tech 2 cycle .....

Question! Why would 2-stroke oil leave a tar like substance on injector tips? I thought the stuff was designed to burn cleanly.

Cap-J, no offense, but your 93 CTD doesn't have a VP-44. I'm just wondering what are the benefits of using 2-stroke in your truck. Maybe prolonging the life of the injectors and/or LP? Just curious.
