Re: opti-lube xpd

I'm using it right now, I just started using it recently. I haven't noticed anything significant like mileage increase, but I'm also only at 20K miles, and was told not to even bother checking mileage until around 50K miles or so. I will continue to use it based on the test results that were posted here, as well as for its anti-geling properties. Seeing as my windshield had ice on it this morning... and they're calling for a few inches of snow tonight.... blah!

Re: opti-lube xpd

If I knew where to get it I'd try it. Any suggestions?

Re: opti-lube xpd

I ordered it right from opti-lubes website. It was at a special introductory rate if I remember correctly. A gallon ran me about $40 something I believe with shipping and everything. A gallon treats something like 256 gallons of diesel.

Re: opti-lube xpd

Quarts would work better or me but $12.95 ? Yikes, I'll stick with Stanadyne for now unless I can find some for cheap on eBay.

Re: opti-lube xpd

What do you mix stanadyne at? Did you read the test with it? Stanadyne decreases lubricity in the motor. A quart of opti-lube will mix with 64 gallons of diesel. Diesel costs $3.50 a gallon around here so an extra 6 bucks on a fill up aint nothing at this point. If it lubricates as good as it says, its totally worth it IMO.

Re: opti-lube xpd

Yeah I read that test, interesting stuff. I'm not too worried about lubricity per se (I use Stanadyne more for cetane reasons). All of the samples I would use in that test improved from baseline readings. However, I'll definitely curtail, but not stop, my use of MMO. And I agree with your economics of a fill up. The gallon of XPD comes with a dispensing pump, how does that work out for you?

Re: opti-lube xpd

You are incorrect about Standadyne decreasing the lubricity. It took the baseline ULSD from 636 to 479 so it increased the lubricity by 157. Keep in mind this test was done with "untreated Diesel" which means it's not the fuel you buy at the pump that has manufactures additivies added to it. I'm sure the manufactures additives also add some lubricity to the fuel. They used the untreated fuel to have a good baseline to show change.

Re: opti-lube xpd

Good point about the 'untreated diesel.' I think you'd be fine to use any of those additives that were tested. However, if anyone on this site is actually adding used oil to their fuel I'm gonna knock their hillbilly a** into next week. [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

What, do you work for the EPA or CARB or something? How do you feel about 2-stroke oil being used?

Re: opti-lube xpd

I use two stroke oil. It sure makes more power when every cylinder fires on every crank rotation instead of every other......
