I'll go first. I think 2 stroke is a great idea and did improve mileage to a small extent. HOWEVER, I did find a downside to it. I started having fuel leaks all over the place. Both in my replacement high pressure fittings and the only stock fitting I had left on the truck. It losend all of em up better then any penetrating oil could have. Just something to watch out for if you use it.

use it in the 24v and the 12v don't know if mileage went up with the 12v cuz I've run 2-stroke from day one with it...get 19-20mpg real easy. The 24 valve went up as well...quieted it down some. works for me...

I've been running it for the past 1 1/2 years, in my 02, and now my 06. Here is what I've noticed. Smoother idle, less clatter/rattle (02) and improved fuel mileage! My main and only reason for running it is because of this new ULSD fuel and the lack of sulfur. I want the lubriticity it ads back into the fuel. Plus I get a little added smoke!

Never have run it, never really thought about running it. my problem is I never fill my tank up, unless I am towing my jeep a long distance. I usually put in about 40 bucks per stop, because my wallet can't take $100 at a time to fill up.

Oh dang... The topic I love to argue on...

Well I got to admit I'm still using 2 cycle oil and I've seen awesome improvements. Quietier engine less knocking, improvement in fuel mileage, and I know every bit of my fuel system is lubricated.

Now as far quantity of oil to use. It simple to figure out. I've been using 1 oz for every 1 gallon of fuel. Or if you fill up from near empty then dump in a full quart (32 ounces).

As for my past discussions of this... I've had made of page full of information on the 2 cycle oil and other products. Never the less I did
finally **** off a company. Believe it or not I pissed off PowerService. So I hit a nerve with that one and ended up pulling my web page.

But my 2 cycle oil research still continues. I will be soon building a new personal web page with all new updated information.
