2-Stroke Oil

I recently replaced my 2-stroke outboard with a 4-stroke, and I have about 8 gallons of 2-stroke oil in my garage. It's Evinrude XD-100. Should I consider using it as an additive? I know some guys use 2-stroke oil as an additive, but wasn't sure if it's widely-acceptable. I'd also like to know if anyone has an opinion on this particular oil.

Go for it dude!!Most of us use the cheap but good Wally world stuff!I used 1oz to a gallon on mine.
What I did was use some clean and clear soda bottles to add like 8 oz or more at a time so when I fueled up with 16 gal I added 2 bottles !

Whats the primary reasons for adding 2-stroke oil....is it just to help lube the injectors and quiet them down or is there more to it than that?

Do it to it.

I run the Wallyworld TCW3 2-stroke in every tank with some Power Service, 1oz/gal. Ol' girl loves it.

I would sell the XD100 -- IIRC, the stuff is kinda pricey.

EDIT: I just checked -- it seems to be going for around $35/gal. $35 x 8 = a lot of sheckles...

Yeah, a few times this summer when he was helping me with the Excursion and when we were trying to plan a GTG in September. He's been running 100 mph with a full plate it sounds like.......

Yeah, it's kinda pricey, but I bought them for $20/gal. I'm going to run a some through a couple tanks to see how it performs.

Run a couple tanks at 1 oz. per gallon, then try running .5 oz per gallon. I did not notice any difference so stayed at .5 oz per gallon.

Guys is it a bad idea to add fuel additives if you only put 100 miles a weekend on the truck??

90% of the time the F250 is just sitting.

Thanks

IMO I think your just as much of a candidate as someone who uses there truck as a daily driver. Additives have a few main objectives; 1) Lubricate/clean the diesel injection system 2) stabilize the diesel for prolonged periods of sitting in the tank 3) protect diesel from gelling in cold weather.

Good luck

I have been adding two stroke to my 7.3 since I bought it and in
a Toyota Landcruiser since fitting a new engine, the Toyota has
done 150,000kms, (93,750 miles) with the new engine.

It does what the BMW and Mercedes-Benz research I read claims
and I have had no problems with it.

Two things my research turned up are:-
1) Only use mineral based 2 stroke oil, never synthetic.
The synthetic seperates out in the tank if you leave it sit to long.
2) The optimum ratio is 200 to 1, thats 5mls of 2 stroke per litre of fuel.

You can do the conversion to oz and gals.
