    I personally use standadyne. I get a few miles a gallon better and my truck runs really smooth.

    Same here: a pint of the Walmart Supertech 2-cycle oil per tank. That works out to a little more than an ounce to the gallon, since the tank usually isn't empty when I fuel up. Also, this time of year I put in a pint of Powerservice white bottle additive per tank.

    adding lubricity to the fuel is adding lubricity so you could really use any oil. I use atf because it's supposed to have quite a bit of detergents in it to keep stuff clean. I've also had good luck with lucas fuel treatment it's pretty thick too

    According to their site, it also has a lubricant:

    "Contains Slickdiesel® Lubricator to protect fuel pumps and injectors from increased wear caused by poor quality Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) fuel"

    reading these comments I cant help but believe that diesel kleen is doing a great job for my engine. that said, when LuLuBelle really runs like a crap I use Butchs extreme. Don't know what's in it, but by hanky it works....So I guess for maintaining the status quo Ill keep using diesel Kleen....Hope to make it to Wespauls place one more time.......That dude is amazing when it comes to idi engines.

    I realize that it is supposed to be a lubricant, but my point was that it doesn't seem to smooth the engine out any, or make a noticeable difference.
    I am kind of old school with my techniques. Here's the Ole' list

    For a deep clean of the entire fuel system-
    *40% kerosene to 60% diesel.:Thumbs Up

    For IP lubrication-
    *16oz. Of 2 cycle oil per tank.:Thumbs Up

    A little extra something in the engine oil-
    *marvel mystery oil.just dump in the whole bottle!:Thumbs Up

    Anti-gel-
    *power service or peak.:Thumbs Up
    I just bought 10 quarts of peak at ollies,for 1.99 each, so I am currently using peak.

    :Thumbs Up:Thumbs Up:Thumbs Up:Thumbs Up:Thumbs Up:Thumbs Up:Thumbs Up:Thumbs Up:Thumbs Up:Thumbs Up:Thumbs Up:Thumbs Up

    Ive used marvel for years and years and now that I'm thinking about it, I wonder about using it in the fuel in place of say the 2 stroke oil? Any thoughts?

    I don't see why not. I believe marvel is recommended for use in fuel systems, so there is no reason not to. I think that it all comes down to price. You can use old motor oil if you want and trust me, there are lots of old farmers that do that, but they all do the same thing. I like 2 cycle because it is cheap, burns cleaner, and I can buy it in bulk.

    i buy the gallon bottle of two stroke oil at walmart, pour half into another bottle and add a quart of atf to each bottle. makes a good lube + detergent solution IMHO.

    DieselKleen ranks fairly low in terms of lubricity but may offer other benefits.

    Personally I like the optilube products but for off-the-shelf I go with Stanadyne or Hotshot's sumpn' or other. Sometimes I run some ATF but it seems to cause a slight drop in power, at least at the rate of 1 quart/tank.

    I personally don't run atf, because it's a lot different then the old atf that was great for diesel engines. The new stuff has so many additives and detergents that I don't like the idea of running that in my trucks or tractors.

    Just curious here, but what are the differences? Detergents, dino vs synth? Would Type-F ATF be closer to the older stuff?
