The 2 stroke oil may not be the answer short of buying the synthetic it seems, but its to expensive. The ATF seems hopeful but does have some good properties, it may well need a strong mix rates to be effective.

Someone told me today that a Farmer (in Alberta) uses 1L ATF per 200L of diesel in his equipment , for he said to keep the fuel system and motor clean problem free.
1 cup to 50L is 192 to 1 , much like my Yamaha 2 stroke outboard which is 200 to 1

Oil Pan your mix , 15-1 is strong but I expect I could clean the system with that strength then add less to maintain, maybe my car needs that, I may well try.
I need to find used ATF or I need to find someplace that would be happy to give me a jug.
