    seen this on the power wagon facebook page

    they discuss using 1 once of 2 cylce TC-W3 spec oil for every 5 gallons of gas, there's over 50 pages of discussion on it at the LS forum with no negative effects, thinking about trying it on my Saturn Astra before trying it on my PW

    here's the link to it at the LS forum

    Been testing Oil

    Yep , they use it as a UCL Upper Cylinder Lubricant.
    Lots of guys do this on their 5.7L Ram's as a cleaner and metered alternative for UCL especially when running an OCC .

    I suggest you posting this in the synthetic oil thread here.

    I use Pennzoil Marine TC-W3!

    Pennzoil 550022771 XLF Marine Synthetic Blend Engine Oil (TC-W3) - 1 Gallon https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00C43BOTM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_SkfByb80VD3NJ

    Sarge & I had a few conversations. Before losing touch with him.

    I will admit the only true benefit that I have actually witnessed/hearing is quieter injectors. The UCL part --->you just have to have faith/believe it is doing just that! One thing to remember the TC-W3 is totally Ashless so no deposits will be formed as well as Full of Detergents.

    PM me anymore concerns or questions. I'm sure this post will be deleted here.

    I have dirtbikes and put the extra premix gas in my '96 Dakota so it isn't sitting around the garage. only thing you have to watch is don't put to much oil or its likely to kick on the check engine light and maybe throw some goofy codes

    Jerry: @ 640:1 a CEL will never appear nor will your Kitty's show any ill effects.

    Remember in normal circumstances this oil is used at either 32:1 / 40:1 / 50:1 we are talking about 640:1. Most owners have a very hard time grasping that for some reason.
