Facts about Diesel refined in SA and sold in all Southern African countries

** At a 200:1 volumetric blending ratio, 2-stroke oil has a negligible effect on diesel lubricity.
** All diesel fuel sold in South Africa has to meet the SANS 342:2014 lubricity specification to ensure the proper protection of diesel fuel pumps and injector systems.
** The low sulphur diesel products sold by Sasol contain lubricity improver additives which are far more effective than 2-stroke oil.
** At a 200:1 volumetric blending ratio, 2-stroke oil has a negligible effect on diesel cetane number.
** No measurable effect on all other regulated diesel properties was measured at a 200:1 dose of 2-stroke oil in diesel.
** 2-stroke oil can contain around 16ppm zinc, or higher depending on the formulation and batch.
** Trace amounts of zinc in diesel are known to rapidly accelerate injector nozzle deposits.
** Engine test results show that a 200:1 blend of 2-stroke oil in diesel results in a 2% loss of engine power in a 16 hour test due to injector fouling, a risk that would apply to any common rail diesel engine, but could also worsen fouling in older engines.
** Vehicles fitted with a diesel particulate filter (DPF) in the exhaust system could experience reduced DPF life due to the collection of ash and metal based contaminants in the filter over time with the continued use of 2-stroke oil.

Been using it for 270000km when i can find 500ppm havent had a problem yet ...is this for common rail only?

It mentions it is not to be used in CR, yes.

It does however say that it has NO ADVANTAGES for ANY diesel engine, as all fuels in SA has to conform to a standard, which in turn ensures sufficient lubrication

"All diesel fuel sold in South Africa has to meet the SANS 342:2014 lubricity specification to ensure the proper protection of diesel fuel pumps and injector systems"

and

"The low sulphur diesel products sold by Sasol contain lubricity improver additives which are far more effective than 2-stroke oil."

Sasol 10ppm werk soos in glad nie in my lorrie nie klink of mens klippe in die sump het .

Ek vermy alle bymiddels.

In my opinie is dit dieselfde as om voorskrifmedisyne by die dokter te kry, en dan op pad huistoe nog ekstra pille by die apteek ook te gaan koop! :mytwocents:

I have just completed 4400 km Outreach trip through Richtersveld.
I started of with 50 ppm diesel and no 2.SO. The Patrol was sluggish an running high EGT's all the wile.
At Vryburg I filled with 500 ppm. After about 50 Km the EGT's started behaving and. in Upington filled with 50 ppm. On the way to Goerapan the EGT again went up, but not as high as at the start.
Next I filled up at Grootderm with 500 ppm again PLUS added 2SO. From there to Springbok the EGT's stayed below around 400, In Springbok filled with 500 ppm again. in Port Nolloth only 50 ppm, Then we did the Richtersveld plains, the dunes,
In Richtersveldt Nat. Park I added 20 litre of 50 ppm,
On leaving at the end of the Outreach, we filled in Springbok with 500 ppm and I added 250 ml of 2SO.
The clattering in the engine reduced when I fill with 500 ppm. If I add 2 SO on the 50 ppm it also runs quieter and the EGT runs lower temps

I add 2 SO and I advocate the use of it. That so-called "Lab Test" was done with the intention to prove a specific finding, not convincing at all.
In real life, on my diesel vehicles, the ZD.30 Hard Body AND the 4,2 Patrol the performance goes up, the fuel consumption improves, th eEGT and temp runs cooler AND the clattering quiets down, some.
