    Just my experience.
    I bought a 3.2 pajero with 200k on the clock and drove it for 10000 km. It was very noisy but I thought that is just the way they are.
    A week ago I decided to put 2so in when I filled up. A couple of blocks down the road it suddenly turned a lot quieter. This is certainly no scientific evidence or something but I was just amazed at the difference in sound

    I too have tried this now at a ratio of 200:1. Definitely quieter (not sure if that is actually a good thing), however fuel economy has gone way up. About 1l/100 more than usual. Same trip to work everyday, same fuel station :-/
    I'll try it out for another tank and see how it goes.

    That study is moot. Discussed at length already.

    Here is an R5 in my care . 222'000km. Stock standard with egr.

    Better than mine posted earlier?

    So Marius - you are comparing the intake of a egr block car vs the intake of a non egr blocked car and attributing the differnce in cleanliness to something you put in th tank and that never gets into the intake at all?
    Please explain the mechanism of this ?
    if you say the exhuast side is cleaner - great, i could understand this as the stuff burns there , but the intake how?

    Sorry. I must explain

    At some stage i was in two minds over egr use or not so my car had the egr active for a while.

    But yes, this is more to show that egr blanking is beneficial more than punting the controversial muti

    I added 2 stroke oil to fuel for years but it was for the RD350, RZ350, RZ500, PE250 and IT250. Even at the correct mixing ratio for the type of fuel and application, the exhausts on all of them had oily deposits. I'd rather follow the manufacturers instructions with regard to adding things to fuel, but then again this is Africa and the Witch Doctors often have the final say.

    Any engine using fuel with 2SO added to the required ratio for 2-stroke engines (typically 1:16 - 1:50) will have oily residue in the exhaust.
    2SO as an additive in 4-stroke engines is typically dosed at 1:200, which is quite a difference?

    Use it or don't.

    Hi all.

    Some info to share. I spoke to a oil fundi. He has been in the industry for about 30 years.
    He claims that if you really want to add more lubrication to your diesel to lube injectors or pump, while running espesially older engines on 50ppm, you should use transformer oil. It is pure oil and has no additives at all.
    He claims it is the safest option.

    Anybody else out there that can back this up?

    Regards
    Fazda

    2so is designed to lubricate and burn clean and remove carbon deposits.

    Transformer oil is not designed with any of these parameters in mind.

    Diesel fuel is designed to meet criteria set out by tree huggers, not engine lovers.

    Food for thought.

    For every 1 liter of diesel, how much 2SO do I use?

    This must be the biggest heap of crap I've read on this Forum is days...
    But I will defend your post by pointing out that one must make outlandish statements to convince feeble-minded people that adding oil designed to lubricate a two stroke petrol engine (with carburetor) will help if added to diesel (which is an oil) in 4 stroke Diesel engines (particularly the injectors).
    I'm sure some schmuck will swallow it hook, line & sinker.

    Why, at this stage, unless otherwise proven, should we question the oil expert?

    If you feel you need to:

    it is a 200:1 ratio

    for 1L of diesel that means 5ml of 2SO

    for 200L of diesel that means 1L or in other words 1000ml of 2SO

    Because his only an expert on oil.

    Not on 2sO
    Always think: Could this be sarcasm?
