Blending with ATF

Postby sacveggieguy » Fri Feb 20, 2009 6:23 pm

Anyone thought of blending with ATF? I remember using it in smaller quantities added to diesel to help clean and lube injectors. Would a 25% blend of ATF and WVO be ok?

Thanks Paul aka Sacveggieguy

The ol' notion of cleaning with ATF I have come to understand as it made since back in the day. ATF formula were different then though. Many still do it cause of that history not realizing that the formula for ATF is lightyears different now.

Not sure if that difference helps, hurts, or does absolutely nothing as a cleaner anymore.

Also just be award; red ATF might falsely flag that you have offroad diesel in your tank.... off road fuel is died red right?

Pre 1973 ATF was sperm whale oil!
