If you want upper cylinder and valve lubrication use something like this

I use it in all my vehicles, didn't see a noticeable increase in fuel mileage in cars or pickup (I never check mileage), but I did see an improvement in our motorhome. It also helps stabilize the fuel.

Just take 3 ounces for every 10 gallons of gas.

I'm going to say no. while ashless 2 cycle oil in small quantities probably won't hurt anything, it is unlikely to help anything either.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

I use it in my 7.3 powerstroke diesel .  It is amazing how much it quiets it down. Something to do with the low sulfur diesel fuel out there now.  3/4 oz per gallon.

I worked in a northeast US auto parts chain for a few years in the early 80's (Penn-Jersey Auto Stores). Back then all of the old-timers with gray beards bought Marvel Mystery Oil. I recall always thinking what is this mystery product? lol We also had a lot of used car lots buying all kinds of stop leak products (rabbit turds) and the cheapest oil known to mankind at that time. It was Penn-Jersey's "Trax" brand oil. I used it in some customer oil changes at their request and I'd swear it was drain oil put back in a can.
