  • Which Diesel Additive for NW DiD Pajero?

    Does any one use Diesel fuel additive? I have previously only owned petrol cars and used Liqui-Moly the German additive. They also have diesel additive as well. I just wanted to ask the group which diesel fuel additive is recommended. I have a friend who uses Lucas in his Touareg.

    If you do a search of the posts in all Gen 4's you'll come across a lot of differing opinions on additives. also check out 2SO or two stroke oil which a lot of people use.

      Out of interest what is the point of putting 2 stroke oil in your tank?

        Because someone thought it was a good idea. Personally i would run from it.

        I use the Mitsubishi diesel additive every service (7,500Ks). They can't blame the additive if they supply it

          What does it do and what does it cost per tank?

            It must do something as when my motor was rebuilt at 220,000Ks the injectors and injector lines were perfect.

            Rather than use some other brand that Mitsubishi could say was the cause of mechanical failure if I needed warranty I decided to use their brand.

            Cost...about $12.

              Sweet. Cheaper than SCA and Repco stuff.

                  I use Chemtech Diesel Power. NFI if it does anything but a guy I work with swears by it, says his MN runs like a dogs breakfast when he doesn't use it.

                      There is a lot on the forum about using 2SO in the diesel - it is an old trick. I am one of the people that has been using it for quite a while and I use a ratio of 200:1 - ie. in the 90lt. tank I put 450ml. of oil before filling the tank. One chap on here checked his Paj. on a dyno before and after using it and reckoned it gave him a slight rise in power but the main reason people use it is to lubricate the pump and clean. It must NOT be motor mower oil - I use Castrol Activ Two Stroke oil.

                      Cheers

                            I'am not writing much but can contribute to this topic.
                            I bought a new Pajero at the end of 2011(mainly thanks to all of you and all knowledge I found on this forum).I discovered the above link about using 2SO and a few more german websites and started to use 2SO when the car had 10000km on the clock.Now the car has got 40000km and during this time didn't have one single issue because of oil in diesel,no complaints from DPF, nothing(I believe that if the oil could cause some problems they would already appear).
                            Must also say that thanks to my fathers job I've had numerous additives available but after discovering 2SO option I gave them all away and stuck only with oil.
