Default 2 Stroke Oil for the Dodge Cummins with Bosch VP44

For those of you who want to run 2 stroke oil, the best ratio is 128:1 or 1ounce to 1 gallon. The oil needs to have TC-W3 on it. Here is a picture of the most common used oil. You get it from Wal-Mart.

I am not sure if your truck needs this. I think that yours is designed to run on ULSD, unlike mine.

Yes, it is legal, but like Stodg73 said, yours is made for the ULSD so there probably won't be much of a benefit for you to run it. The VP equipped trucks are the ones that benefit the most from two cycle oil.

Correct...

1989 to 2002 Dodge Cummins can run 128:1 ratio or 1 oz of oil for every 1 gallon of fuel.

2003-2006 Dodge Cummins use a slightly less amount 200:1 ratio.

As for will it clog injectors... The answer is No...

As for will it clog fuel filters... The answer is No...

I've been using 2 cycle oil now for 96K miles and no problems.

You should not be running 2 stroke oil in your GMC. Your truck is designed for ULSD.

I just have some left from the case plus a couple that I bought for my sled. Bought oil, sold sled, and I ran the oil in my 01 last summer. I still have a couple quarts. I would dump a whole quart of amsoil interceptor in the tank before I topped off. Ran probably 10 quarts threw it last summer.. Have about 3 left..

What i meant by legal is "is it gonna screw anything up?"

And that is why I said no. The oil is designed to burn and is ashless. At the ratio you would use there won't be any problem.
