2 stroke oil

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, im new on here but have a question that is not just confined to jaguars,

A friend of mine has been told that adding 2 stroke oil to the fuel will help it run better, I have never heard of this before so if anyone can help clear this up before he goes ahead and does it I would be grateful, he has an audi diesel

Thanks in advance

Hi David

This is just my opinion--I think it would down rate your fuel and cause it to smoke so I would not use it .

Hi David,

 

I have known several  X type diesel owners who mix 2 stroke oil with another additive --  Millers, I think - whenever they fill up.

 

They also used supermarket fuel, which most diesel users find cheaper but less efficient.

 

A lot of thought has gone into what the oil companies put into their fuels, and I think that the amateur fuel fixer has a long way to go before getting to the stage when their mix of oils and additives is as good as Shell Vitro which I use [the nearest to me at 500 yards], BP and Esso equivalents do exist.

 

I always advise the best stuff, as the engines are performance engines and need performance fuels.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.
