Re: 2-stroke oil in your gas

Im a huge fan of lucas fuel additive, it noticed an increase in fuel economy and performance and for 9$/quart and only 3oz per tank, it goes pretty far.

Re: 2-stroke oil in your gas

An interesting idea... anyone with more knowledge than I know about the feasiblity of this with the MS3's DISI? Does it make a difference?

Re: 2-stroke oil in your gas

my question is on a turbo car, would it gunk up the turbine? I would imagine a little big of gunk on a turbine would decrease efficiency a lot. Then again it may just burn off the turbine, since under normal driving conditions turbos themselves hit around 700*, and nearly 1000* just going from say 60 to 80 under mild boost.

Re: 2-stroke oil in your gas

I would think a bad idea. I have no clue of the formulation of something like lucas oil additive or 2-stroke gas oil additives, but I do know that the phosphorus that is present in regular engine oil (synth and non-synth) will gunk a catalytic converter as well as O2 sensors. Big reason why engines that burn a lot of oil tend to clog their cat and need O2 replacements much more frequently.

Now the Lucas stuff and 2-stroke gas oil additives might be phosphorus free, but I'd still worry about it (I don't know of any 2-stroke engines that have a catalytic converter attached).

Re: 2-stroke oil in your gas

Im pretty sure the lucas says it is right on the bottle, ill check later. But all we can do is speculate.

Re: 2-stroke oil in your gas

If you browse through the thread a bit, someone asked about O2 sensors and the OP claims it won't gunk them up at all. Apparently if you get TC W3 oil, it burns almost completely.

Re: 2-stroke oil in your gas

Pretty common for rotary guys to do it, especially if they delete the oil metering system. Dump a quart of oil in the gas tank every fill up, and good to go.

It's actually one way of making those cars slightly more reliable. By slightly, I mean you only have to rebuild the engine every 45k miles instead of every 37k, lol.

Re: 2-stroke oil in your gas

I've read through more of the thread, looking pretty exclusively at the OP's (sarge) posts. He said that they have a twin-turbo'd car in their "test fleet"... so I would guess it's not guming up the turbo either.

Re: 2-stroke oil in your gas

well i went to autozone a picked up a quart of the pennzoil marine 2-stroke oil for 3.99 and i will be trying it today in the gtp when i fill up today. for the size gas tank i have ill be using 3-3.5 ounces of the 2-stroke oil per tank which that quart should last about 50 or so tanks (thats 8 cents a tank!). i figure its worth a try especially since the gtp is higher mileage(80,000) it'll clean and lube things up nicely as well as possibly lower knock retard.
