is it just a detergant thing or what? I ask because universal is generally found it quarts but outboard is easily found in gallons, which would be nice to carry around for mixing my diesel fuel with.

I dont know how it afects us useing it as a fuel suplement, but it will ruin a 2 stroke moter if used wrong. You can use non outboard oil in an outboard,but you cant run outboard oil in a 2 stroke motor. Like a chainsaw or lawnmower. Hope this helps. Rod
