    Question Two Stroke Oil Added to diesel

    Hi all , I heard that it helps to add 2 stroke oil to your diesel when filling up to help lubricate the diesel injector pump and injectors ect ,

    Any comments ? Would greatly be appreciated ,

    Thanks

    Yes you have heard correct. Been doing it for a long time in various diesel cars and bakkies. The injectors run noticeably quieter as well

    I use it in my TD5, since the beginning of the year. Don't know if its my imagination, but the injectors are noticeably quieter.

    We add it to our petrol engines now and then as well, I chuck a 500ml into a 75l tank. Lubes petrol pump and injectors valve seals etc. Give's me mechanic a headache, he always thinks my rings are shot ;-)

    I use it on my Tdi Defender and TD5 Discovery. I am convinced that it is very beneficial.

    I use a 250 ml bottle of 2 stroke every time i fill up (both cars have a 130 l capacity - and i prefer to fill up at half tank level)
    I dont think it is a problem if far more is used - but 2 stroke is more pricey than diesel - ie dont fret about exact amounts.

    I'm in for the injector noise test.
    Will use two stroke oil on the next fill and see.
    Too late for the lube test as kilo's are already high.

    I use Reddex, does the two stroke oil do a different job.

    What is Reddex?
    Everything is a hammer.
    Unless it is a screw driver.

    Then it it a chisel.

    Hi Ian
    The 2 stroke adds lubricity and possibly some cleaning action. Particularly good with low sulfur diesel.
    Reddex i think is also a valve/ upper cylinder lubricant ?
    Could possibly also simply be 2 stroke with fancy packaging ?

    I only have 1 question...

    I drive a 1 year old Xtrail 2.0 dci (new generation Renault diesel engine)...I am pretty sure Nissan won't accept this and I will lose my warranty if I ad 2-stroke oil to my diesel. What do u guys think? They use every inch they can get to void a warranty.

    You buy it in a small pvc bottle , its Red and its to be used in your petrol tank before you go on a long journey,
    Its basically an upper cylinder lubricant with great carbo cleaning properties. Its used also by the motorbike industry.
    There are other types available eg Shell Optimax. They are all fuel additives. I cant prove to you it works though.

    How will they tell? There's no ways they can detect that you are doing this.

    I dont think 2 stroke oil would be detectable at less than 1 % concentration. Remember that 2 stroke is hardly classifiable as an additive. Like diesel fuel , 2 stroke is a collection of hydrocarbon molecules -long chains of hydrogen and carbon molecules. In the case of the oil these chains are longer which gives it its lubricity. But when they burn , both diesel and 2 stroke combine with oxygen to give carbon dioxide and water. No tell tale different combustion products and no visible difference in the diesel.
