Teflon 2 stroke oil

Does this exist? We use telon additives in a lot of lubes at work, it isnt cheap, have any of the oil manufacturers tried this or is fundamentally a bad idea as you'll burn it off any way.

Teflon doesn't burn (at least not easily), which is why NASA uses it as insulation on wiring.

Teflon in 2 stroke oil will eventually leave a bunch of particulate teflon wherever the oil burns off - probably not a good thing.

Slick 50 used to do a additive for 2 strokes that you mix with the oil, that had Teflon in it. Not sure if they still make it though.

Some interesting reading about Slick 50:

There additive was added by pouring into the carbs and created a huge white cloud which only slowly disappeared. Used it once and it did raise the engine revs for a few hours but then the effects disappeared as did the claims of benefits on the packaging

I used to work with a bloke we called Teflon.

Because try as he did, the crap just wouldn't stick.

His name wasn't Tony was it?

I used Slick50 once on a 4 stroke engine - never again!!! When I stripped it down after about 40,000 miles I have never seen so much black sludge and crap . Washed it all out and ran it for another 60,000 miles on nice clean oil changed every 10,000 miles - engine was as clean as a whistle.

I've got some of that somewhere. It's out of production now. I wonder why
