There's no way of knowing what effect a fuel treatment might have on fuel lubricity without an HFRR (High Frequency Reciprocating Rig) test that the industry is using to determine fuel lubricity. The fuel treatment manufacturers have the money and incentive to conduct these tests, but the home brewers out there are basing their opinion on hunches. My guess would be that a mix ratio for diesel fuel and 2-cycle oil (used in a 2006 model year diesel or older) would be in the range of 200 to 500:1. But that's just a guess.

Don't use any sort of oil in the new 2007 model year diesel powered vehicles as a fuel treatment. The cats and soot traps would likely be damaged as a result.

Buy commercially available B2 (2% bio-diesel) and not worry about it.....

Jim

I'm not sure if it was covered but the ultra low sulfur diesel does have a lubricating additive that is put into it before transfer to truck racks. I work in the automation industry and have aided in the installation of these "lubricity" skids. The additive is added when the diesel comes into tankage from the pipeline. Unfortunately I don't know exactly what the additive is, but I will do more checking to see what I can find out about it. Most of the skids I have worked on are in California, Arizona, and Nevada. Hope this helps.

I was at my fuel jobber's yesterday. He showed me his latest bill of laden, and it showed where his distributer had added lubicity to the present load of fuel and he said they will continue to do it when the Ultra takes over. He made it plain that his customers doesn't need to add lubricity anymore.

Default Ulsd

All,

Well, to protect my prized possession from the EPA mandated ruination of diesel fuel, I am taking the 2-Stroke additive route. Went to Walmart and bought a gallon of their Super Tech 2 Stroke TC-W3. Some here are putting 2 ounces per 16 gallons of fuel. I am trying 8 ounces per 16 gallons of fuel and will let you all know of the results, positive or negative. Any comments?

Thanks,
MM821

The recent article we produced on the ULSD and the new emissions systems contains a discussion about 1982 to present GM diesel fuel injection systems.
