I use 2 stroke all the time. Lubes the injectors. And brings my balance rates back to a normal range. The crappy diesel fuel we have today is pretty dry....unless you burn the "red" stuff. I hear it still has 500ppm of sulfur instead of 15ppm. But, who really knows what they are doing now days.

the "red" stuff is the same as at the pump,all they do is add a dye to it & dont add a road tax to its cost you wont notice any difference in using except in you wallet & it smokes a lil more then pump
