Has anyone ever mixed 2 stroke in their gas?
 
There is a forum w 51 pages of responses talking about using 2 stroke in your fuel tank. Mixing 1 ounce of 2 stroke per 5 gallons of gas. It supposedly does a whole lot of good.

lubricates the fuel pump/seals/injectors.
cleans the fuel system and scavenge water that ethanol attracts.
Creates a film of protection in our fuel system to stop corrosion.
Acts as a cleaner for our spark plugs/valves/combustion chambers.
Cleans the ring packs
Leaves a film on the cylinder walls to eliminate cold start metal wear.

Afterwards you will be
A) Run Smoother B) Run more efficiently C) Parts will last longer i.e. fuel pumps/injectors etc. D) Should see more RWHP and MPG

For pennies!

I used this on numerous vehicles and have recently been doing it on my 325i. Every fill up I measure it out and dump it right in with the gas.

Curious is anyone else has done this?

Not me.

tmr931 02-11-2013 08:45 PM

makes sense

TurnersInOz 02-11-2013 08:50 PM

Nope, never done that.
Can't see how a lot of those points would be valid, given that all you are doing essentially is putting oil in the gas.
For example I cannot see how adding oil to the fuel would do anything for water in the tank. The two don't mix. Oil+anything generally does not equal clean.
I'd also be curious to see what effect, if any, this could have on sensors and cats.

Okay, in before WDE46 and DonaldE, among other engineers. A few questions:

cleans the fuel system and scavenge water that ethanol attracts
I used to use gasoline to clean up oil residue, not the opposite. Since when does oil absorb water?

Leaves a film on the cylinder walls to eliminate cold start metal wear
Isn't that what motor oil is for?

jgold47 02-11-2013 08:54 PM

most e46 owners already do this. Its called burning oil.

I mix a little milk in with my gas. Usually skim, but sometimes 2%. I figure it does a body good. I've never had a car rust on me and I live in Michigan.

peytonracer4 02-11-2013 08:57 PM

putting oil in the gas...? seems like it would just make combustion weird and unpredictable.

it would also foul the plugs.

and it will screw your cats

And I forgot to include the statement that caused me to respond in the first place. Does 2 cycle oil have a higher btu/lb content than gasoline? If that's the case, why don't we run our engines on it to begin with? How much btu does it add to a tank of gas? How much does it cost per gallon?

And while you're at it op, make sure to replace your muffler with that of a lawnmowers; they're said to have a more free-flowing muffler.

I will put what I have left from a day of riding my dirtbike in my van it doesn't hurt it but I wouldn't waste money on it on my car

I also suggest installing a 48 inch John Deere deck to save wear on your lawn mower while you are at it.

When I was two years old, my parents bought me a Suzuki jr50 w/custom fab training wheels

It was 2 stroke.

metalmania305 02-11-2013 09:37 PM

What do we have, scooter motors? I remember a scooter I had that I had to mix 2cycle oil with the gas to make it work, but not on my bimmer you crazy.:lmao::lmao:

B_Cyrus 02-11-2013 09:39 PM

This isn't an RX7, and E46's already burn oil.

rudycoop 02-11-2013 10:57 PM

It has been extensively tested on other forums and I will say it again, 51 pages of positive results. I have been doing it and my 325 runs and idles like new.

Shucks, came in here to say that. Sounds like a silly idea.
