Mai tuu liao! Buy!

There's mineral, semi-synthetic, and synthetic.
Mobil 2T Extra is semi.

After I finish current one, I try the basic mineral type.
it was wirtten as SYNTHETIC.. but not sure whether it is semi.. the brand name is TOUR from France !

A friend added the 2T to his Sylphy, and told me the acceleration seems smoother and lighter than usual.
Update again when he re-fuels full tank and inform me of the mileage result.

Friend informed at half tank, should show 270km, but achieved 330.
At top up, pumped 6 Lit lesser petrol.

adding 2-stroke oil and diesel
http://www.freel2.com/forum/topic878.html

that works apparently, and a rather common practise for diesel guys.

for petrol engine though, it's not so clear cut. there's the issue of clogging up the cat (unless you are not running one!) among other issues ie: carbon build up.

Diesel and petrol engines are different engine concepts.
Different combustion processes.

No rules stopping you, as long as your mileage is consistent, so that you can track the differences before and after adding the 2T.

My friends added about 60ml of 2T oil to their Honda Civic FD, and 90ml to Honda Odessey. Will let me know the findings.

Friends did not note the mileage, but confirmed they top-up slightly lesser petrol at usual top-up distance/fuel guage mark.
Also commented smoother engine performance.

Semi-synthetic 2T should cost about $12/litre or lesser.
A friend bought Mobil Extra 2T at a motorcycle shop in Jalan Kayu at $10.

Synthetic oils are lubricants, altered such that their burning points (flashpoints) are higher than mineral oils, and providing better friction reduction between and/or around moving parts.

2T synthetic oils have lower flashpoints than 4T synthetic oils, and these 2 oils serve different purposes.
If both were exposed to the same high operating temperature, 2T oil will burn much more easily and readily than 4T oil.

2T oil must be pre-mixed with fuel to provide the lubricating effect in 2-stroke engines, whereas 4T oil circulates around the moving engine parts and circulate the heat away.

For you folks on the 2T-in-fuel experiment, remember to check your spark plugs, monitor air-fuel ratio (it it runs lean its unhealthy) also keep tabs on the temperature of the engine.

I suggest you folks go easy as the excessive carbon build up and clogged catalytic convertors can be an expensive repair job.
