Just make sure that the 2 stroke oil you put in the tank is NOT synthetic. It will not burn, and just makes a mess of the inside of the turbine housing, and the exhaust system.It probably isn't worth the money in the long run.
MMO doesn't work well as a lube replacement in the new ULS diesel, either. Believe it or not, walmart 2-cycle oil works pretty well for that.
I'm surprised MMO doesn't help with lube of the pump and injectors..In response to the original poster, MMO does have some benefits on gasoline engines, where you are compressing fuel and air (and the MMO is in the mix)
In diesel engines, you are only compressing air. The fuel begins to burn the instant it leave the injector tip. MMO would do nothing as a carbon reducer in a diesel engine when run through the fuel system.
In the engine oil?
No thanks, I like to leave my Mobil Delvac unmolested.
I've been watching this thread and thought I should mention something that happened to the guy who rents next to my shop. He runs vegetable oil through his Mercedes, got all that conversion stuff. When he first did the conversion, it shot lots of soot.Has anybody out there heard of using Mineral oil in the fuel tank of a diesel to help reduce carbon build-up and lube the upper end as well as the injectors? I`ve heard that Marvel Mystery oil will do this also. Any input from the 4BT boy`s?
