    Not to change the dirrection of this thread but my vehicle would consume
    a 1/2 a qt of T-6 in 3000 miles and I usually go 6000 on an oil change.
    I've switched to Mobil Truck Turbo Diesel 5w40 which is a sister to their Delvac 1 line , not identical , and havn't had to add any oil in 6000 miles.

    The T-6 is more reasonably priced but I get 20% off the Mobil where I work.
    NO difference in fuel mileage between the two.

    t 6 and Mobil 1 truck and diesel turbo 5w40

    I have used both of the above,,,both do well in my
    dodge 318. I to have used other oils that used a qt in 3000 miles.
    dont know why,,but the t6 a Mobile 5w40 both work well for me, glad u found the one that works best for u.

    Switched from the Wal Mart TC-W3 this summer to Valvoline. Seem to have picked up another 1 to 2 mpg in the Odyssey and Accord. Got a "best ever" mpg from Reno to Socal last week of 28+. Ya, Ya, I know it's all down hill but there's 4 years of fuel tickets on this run. This will pay for the 2x price of the Valvoline over the SuperTech. Anyone else try a different brand of the TC-W3 and notice a difference? Is this confirmation of the ol "You get what you pay for" quote???

    2001 GMC Yukon XL 2500

    Wow this thread has been going on for a while...I LOVE IT! I have read all posts and am 1000% positive I will try it tomorrow. I just have a couple quick questions before I do.

    Here are my particulars...2001 GMC Yukon XL 2500, with Vortec 8100 (8.1L). I currently have 160k miles on it and just yesterday had to replace a bad fuel pump. I have a slight miss at idle that I can't seem to solve so I'm hoping this oil add will fix it.

    So, here is my question...if my calculations are correct...I have a 38.5 gallon tank. I'm about 3/4 tank right now so I will fill up and add 7 ounces of TC-W3 correct? Then each time I fill up (usually from half tank or about 20 gallons) I'd add 4 ounces. RIGHT?

    Thanks!! J

    If you want to do 1oz./5gallon, then 38.5/5=7.7 so round up to 8. Or some people do 1oz./4gallons. So then 38.5/4=9.625. Any where around 8-9 oz's should be good. I don't think it has to be exact. I would divide by 5 and always rounded up. ex. 21gallons/5=4.2 I would put 5ozs

    I was doing this to my 89 GMC until I sold it. It helped with start-up, vibration, and fuel pump noise. I never figured the MPG's after I started the treatment.

    U dont have to be exact, I do use an old measuring bottle though, makes it easier. I have been using the tcw3 for sometime,,on my 4th or 5 th gallon, 275k miles on my dodge van. I do have a bad valve seat and the 2cycle oil makes the engine run less rough at idle. the fuel pump noise is gone and Ive got almost 100 k on the plugs too. Mileage last week one take was 18 mpg, but I was runniing at 60mph, if I run at 65 or 70 it goes down to 15.5 or 16mpg, not bad for a one ton van with a 318 v8. 2002 model that I haul freight in. I usually add 7 oz or 8 oz when I fill up very 550 miles.

    One quick question.....I have been using tcw3 additive for several months in my vehicles and am well pleased with the results.....Now that I am using this additive, do I need to also use injector cleaner? I have not used any since I started using tcw3.......

    Any TC-W3 2-stroke oil should be fine. I've used the SuperTech at Wal-Mart.

    Walmart has Pennzoil TCW3 in full synthetic, and is about 27 or 28 dollars a gallon. It cost more, but it is worth the extera money. Its all I ever used and my results are fantastic......

    Tcw3 synthetic are superior is like the motors oil, especially in this kind of application with an extra lean ratio the benefit are crucial.

    I Use Amsoil hp injector.
