TCW3 2-stroke oil for ethanol defense


Recommended Posts

Anyone hear this. Was at a car show Saturday, guy with a 56 chevy came over and started talking. The subject of ethanol came up. He said a engineer friend of his said to put 1oz to every 5gallons of gas - 2 stroke marine oil with TCW3 in it. I check walmart has it and googled it. Some people are trying it, anyone hear about this?:dodgy:

Why play games with something that may or may not work ? I have been using lucas products for quite some time..They work as advertised & are reasonably priced..

The place that rebuilt my engine recommended adding a very small amount of 2 stroke marine oil to ethanol gas to avoid ethanol problems but I'm not willing to try it. I use ethanol free gas in my 71 (five miles from my house, only a few cents more per gallon) and will only use gas with ethanol if ethanol free gas isn't available when I'm on the road and low of fuel.

I've switched all the rubber fuel hoses to "green stripe", resistant to ethanol. I did this after having bits of deterorated fuel like clog the fuel filters of the EFI'ed 2+2. Took me a while to figure out the problem. Car would be running fine, then just quit. I'd pull to the side of the road pop the hood, walk around the car, scratch my head, close the hood get in and restart it, then drive on down the road for 20-45 min till it repeated. Eventually I found out that stopping and shutting off fuel pressure allowed the bits of hose particles to fall away from the filter, only to be eventually forced up against the filter again when the engine restarted, bringing things to a halt again.

Ethanol free is better indeed.

If it ain't broke, I haven't modified it yet.
