In Topic: 1.8 Tdci Running On Added 2 Stroke?

19 February 2015 - 10:17 PM


took her out for a bit of punishment today to see how its getting on with the 250ml of oil in the tank.

Idle noise is all but gone, low RPM sounds about half as noisy then it used to, full on kicking the !Removed! out of it from 3k to 4.2k RPM sounded and felt great, no loss of power but feels smoother. Ill need to do some mpg driving to see the real difference but punishing it was about 3mpg better then before.

that might be to do with the maf sensor though, I cleaned it up today, that smoothed out idle rpm and gave about half a pound more PSI

anyhow, all that aside I can now hear the fuel sloshing about which is a new one on me! :)

should this be an every tank treatment or once every x fill ups?


To get the full benefit of smoothness & quietness at least, it has to be every tank

well, after some more research some folk have used Halfords 2 stroke garden mineral oil, after popping in 250ml to a full tank there was a noticeable change in engine noise after a good solid drive, the mpg without really trying jumped by 2mpg, im not completely sure but I think it has slightly less poke though, might drop the amount a bit next time

250 is the normal ratio for this, as long as your using a low ash mineral oil.   Give it a few tanks and a few Italian tune ups across the carriageway etc and you should be good ( you should normally do this anyway with any diesel). The 2 stroke over a few tanks should  essentially be cleaning up your system/ combustion chambers, so you should see a difference.

and the recommended dose is what 250ml per tank?

Im Curious what FOCA has to say on it now as well.im not to bothered about DPF or CAT clogging up :D but I really don't want to contribute to the carbon deposit problems the 1.6tdci has...

Yes 250ml a tank.

Not sure about carbon difference in dpf of cat, but this does run cleaner in your cylinders and i notice that i now dont ever really get any soot or smokey clouds under hard acceleration anymore.

I see you have been doing this for the past couple of years - what's your feedback, positives and negatives?

On and off yes. To be honest with my varied driving to do with work and moving house a few times, i havnt been able to accurately monitor the mileage since starting. But i havnt honestly noticed any improvement in mpg.

The car definitely is smoother and quieter on it, even a tad bit more responsive.

I just like knowing that the fuel pump, injectors and combustion chamber etc are being better lubricated and cleaned, especially as im doing part time courier in the car the past while when the car is running all day and getting a hard time.

I think it is worth the small extra cost, better than buying the dearer diesel or using things like Redex etc, even though i think redex is ok.

If your buying the 5l Comma oil, it works out about 95p per tank at current price, which is nothing really.

No negatives to date.

What is your model?Check the anti roll bar is tight to the subframe.
