Default Adding 2-stroke oil to diesel

Found a link on here somewhere that lead on to a very interesting thread on the Freelander forum discussing adding two stroke oil to diesel See here for the thread.

Now if the info is correct and I've understood it properly it kinda suggests that low sulfur fuel is not a good thing for injection systems as sulfur has lubricating qualities and that adding 2-stroke to your tank may be a viable fix for the lower sulfur content of today's fuel.

Has anyone here heard or this or indeed practice this? Would adding 2 stroke be a measure people could take of they have an NM or NP diesel in which the injector pump has not yet let go?

This topic has been done to death on the forum and some people have very clear and set ideas on the subject. I was doing this with my NP for quite a while before my pump went at about 300,000km. but I didnít start until it had over 200,000km. on the clock.

Personally I canít see it doing any harm and I suspect it does do some good. The local diesel expert who repaired my pump however, reckons ďit wonít do a bloody thing except clog up your fuel filter,Ē so at the end of the day it is up to you which camp you go with.

Cheers

Geoff

Yep Hendos right...do a search and you will find answers. Topic has been done to death. One point however...it cannot possibly block a filter..impossible as its molecules are measured in nanomicrons not microns.

Enjoy your search...I ,ve been using it for 20+ years but thats for me. Others wont touch it...It all depends on your own experience with it...

Default Sunflower oil mix

Hi guys I have been using a 50/50 mix diesel and sunflower cooking oil for a few years now summer running 50/50 but I tend to reduce the mix in the winter to a 70/30 diesel sunflower mix, I have never had a problem running on a sunflower oil mix, but I did get the pump seals replaced with compliant seals prior to attempting it. Sunflower oil at the moment is approx one pound a ltr, diesel approx 1.35 per ltr here in the uk. Regards
