The gas you pump from the gas station already has alot of additives in it, there is absolutely no need for any additional additives, especially ones like ATF or 2 stroke oil.

How will it harm? lets see, improper mixture of air to fuel causing a hotter exhaust mixture will shorten the life of your plugs. Improper exhaust content will shorten the life of your 02 sensors. More oil in the combustion will cause more carbon build up. Heavier(due to addition of oil) mixture of gas might cause the gas pressure to go down overtime as the mixture is heavier, thus taking more time to travel same distance and requiring more force to be pushed out of injectors.


Lots of reasons not to use 2 stroke oil, one of the most important would be because BMW doest recommend it. If it works for your grandpa , tell him I personally congratulate him, but dont bring this crap in here
Well I NEVER once mentioned ATF, so we can toss that out the window. My grandpa has passed away some time ago, so leave him out of this. It actually cleans plugs, extends the life of o2 sensors, it cleans carbon deposits, cleans cats, coats fuel system, etc etc. The last example you mentioned about it being heavier I just don't have a comment for that. Everything you mention as a bad thing is actually the opposite. Either way, you're right I will take my crap elsewhere.

Just a crying shame people are making such harsh judgements on nothing but belief. Sounds like a lot of other things people argue about, hence the reason I am pulling out of this ridiculous mess. Sorry I brought it up!

It's funny you are knocking me for "wasting" my time informing myself. Maybe you should do the same.

I can take some magnesium citrate, drink a quart of water, then bottle up the stuff that comes out of my butthole the next morning...I can mail this to you so you can funnel it into your gas tank. The natural enzymes lubricate your piston rings, and you can tell your friends that you have kpeng inside of your engine. Best of all, it's all organic.

And have you removed the O2 sensors, inspected the cats before/after, and inspected the spark plugs? Did you have a control to test this?

Does your magical oil mixture of 2-stroke somehow clean these items rather than foul them, which occurs consistently when there's oil leaking through into the combustion chamber?

Or do you drive it and subjectively think, "Well hey! This is so much better!"

I heard your car drives better after you wash it, too

It's not 4 stroke, it's 2 stroke and it's 500:1.

I have seen this spoken about positively on Audi, maxima, saturn, ls1, and bobistheoilguy forums.

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.
Lolol milk?
