Guess u have to consider yourself LUCKY..did you realise that adding 2T oils with fuel deposits more carbon in your engine and its moving parts and leads to more blockage in the long run..

It does appear to be smooth because of the 2T oil..I have done it too until i realised that you screw up your engine..
First the Catalytic convertors..in cars ..disintegrate..followed slowly by the moving parts of the engine becoming more sluggish..thats also why 4 stroke engines DO NOT NEED 2T oil to be added with fuel.

I have also tried using ACETONE with Diesel on reading your posts..The difference is not remarkable but definitely it has made the engine smoother. But SYSTEM D also does the same and is more easily available and easier to add than the measured quantities of ACETONE..

Happy motoring..
