    I have heard about guys putting 2 cycle oil in their fuel tanks for running quieter and mileage. They are mostly Dodge owners thou have any of you FORD guys done anything like this.:dizzy:

    I haven't heard of that. I don't think I would try it, especially if Dodge guys suggest it. I would imagine that it would be widley known by now if it helped your mileage and if it quiets your engine, something is not working correctly. Plus it would smoke like crazy I bet.

    lol, just kidding. There are two Dodges parked in my garage right now. Both my parent have been Dodge owners for like the last 20+ years. I had a '87 Ram and hated it, but it was the fact that it had 178K on it that I hated.

    Starting to wonder if some people are drinking the oil instead of putting it in the tank or are they sniffing the tank and forgetting to put it in there....lol just kidding :dizzy:
