    No opinion, yet. If I use cheap diesel I usually put some additive in, been reading about the 2 stroke oil, not tried it.

    I use 2 dl 2-stroke oil every 40-50 liter of diesel. This lubricate the pump and injectors. Engine run more smoothly and is less noise.

    Of course todays diesel engine run fine without 2 stroke oil or other stuff in the diesel. But when oil company stop adding sulfur in diesel lubricating of the pump and injectors become a problem. And car manufactors has used different solutions to solve this problem with special treatment of the diesel system. But there is no doubt, 2 stroke oil give you more miles before pump and injectors need to be change and less noice from the engine.

    I've not tried 2 stroke yet.
    Tried some redex advance on the last tank an car ran better. An I got an extra 2.5 mpg.
    Not very much no but Excactly the sane journey I do every sunday night an same speed and all I was after was cleaning fuel system out so from that I'm guessing it must work even if only slightly. Am goin to use another bottle of redex an then try 2 stroke and see if Theres any difference

    Currently use Millers additive, but tempted to give 2 stroke a chance.

    I have only just bought the car, so i was going with the theory of Millers to clean it, 2 stroke to lubricate after that.

    I've been running 2stroke for 4 tank fulls. It quietend down the engine and got 2mpg more. I have recently found a bottle of Redex in the garage that I had forgotton about which I thought i'd try and see if I can see the difference btween the two. I'm on the last tank of Reddex and to be honest I havent noticed much difference. Maybe a little louder on the reddex but not much.

    For the cost i'd go with the 2stroke.

    In 2006 the fuel companys removed more sulpher from their diesel. Sulpher lubricated the fuel pumps and the rest of the fuel system. Its of more benefit to us DTI owners as the 2stroke will prolong the life of the fuel pump as well as keep everything running smoothly. From what i've read more modern cars fuel pumps have things like teflon coated parts to take into account the loss of lubricant from the sulpher.
