Anyone used 2-stroke oil in a HDI?

Can't remember, but it wasn't a trivial reason like that.

Back when i had my HDI i used a few bottles of 2 stroke on it, as others said it seemed to smooth it out Smile

No mate, this is down to the owner. Wink

There seems to be loads of positives for adding 2 stroke in your tank, you just have to make the decision yourself. I personally would do it and I am going to soon Wink

Used to do it with the last xud, bit of extra lube for the pump can't hurt to my mind Smile

Its supposed to lower emissions, increase mpg (marginally), lube injectors and pump leading to quieter running...the list goes on. Im thinking of getting a box of Stihl-Saw shots to chuck in Big Grin

http://www.lsengineers.co.uk/stihl-2-str...100ml.html, bit pricey really but I know a guy there Wink

I have put my first lot (200ml) into a full tank of diesel about 5 days ago after reading up and i don't know if its just me or placebo effect but it definitely sounds smoother under load! either way I am very happy.

This is the first tank I have put it in mate but from what I have read from the guys on here that use it you do have to do it every tank. Its not to bad for me I only use about 2 tanks a month.

Im tempted to give this a try. Does it make much difference using mineral or semi synthetic?

semi lmao!!!..... that was made as it dont oil spark plugs so bad as mineral dont think you will have that issue on a diesel

the main thing to look for is the low ash! basicly so it burns with no ash residue to clog rings and other stuff

I thought semi synth was low ash? Or most of them anyway?

Just gambled on a £4 bottle of low ash mineral oil whilst in Focus DIY. Only had about a 1/3rd tank left, so chucked in about 100ml, but it is a bit difficult to put in the filler straight from the bottle. It did have noticeable results though, less smoke, less injector rattle and hell of a lot more perkiness!

use a coca cola bottle the end fits into the filler nice and if you fill the bottle to the lower label line its around 210ml

Drink vast quantities of the 2 stroke oil and then piss down the filler hole.
