I think the 2 stroke oil is a low ash formulation in which case I don`t see
where coking should be an issue. Instead of 2 stroke oil which is somewhat
expensive I think I`d be willing to try compressor oil which is also low ash
and cheaper than 2 stroke oil. I mix about a litre of oil per ten gallons
of diesel when I add oil to my diesel fuel in the car for lubricity
concerns. In the genset I run anywhere from this amount to where I add a
litre of diesel to ten galllons of oil.
