2 stroke oil
« on: March 07, 2019, 10:16:38 PM »
Just want to hear some opinions on what your favorite 2 stroke oil is. I have always run stihl ultra hp, but have recently switched to motul 800 2t and am a big fan!

I was using Stihl HP Ultra, but the last batch I got was PoulanPro full synthetic cause I liked the bottle. I'm not too particular on brand, but I try to stay with full synthetic lubricants in everything. I wouldn't turn down a quality dino oil if it were given to me though.

My new 462 came with a tank of dino mix in it. Dealer claims the first tank will help break in? I buy the best other wise of the top brands.

For my saws and such I've used Stihl and Echo, full synthetic, depending on where I am when I remember that I need some. For my 25HP Merc outboard I use Quicksilver synthetic. I'm going to trade in the Merc for a new Yamaha 4 stroke so any extra Quicksilver will make it's way through my older JD tractor.
 
Stihl 041, 044 & 261, JD 2355 4X4 w/fel, JD 620, Yamaha Kodiak 400 & trailer, Kubota 400 RTV,  P&M OWB, 75 acres to play.

I don't usually get in oil threads, but I will say that I have run Amsoil Saber in every air cooled 2 cycle I've had in the last 40 years.  I started out running 100-1 in Yamaha SRX's in '77 and a SST 340 Snowjet the same.  Nowadays, my cabin saw and trimmer get 50-1 mix and all the stuff around home here gets 32-1 because my old mowers and dirt augers have bronze bushings and need lots of oil.
No reason to change for me!

As a matter of fact when I bought my Toro zero turn ,brand new which is something I seldom do .The dealer said to do the first oil change at 20 hours and use petroleum oil for another 20 .Then if I wanted switch to synthetic if I wanted changing every 50 hours .
 I also at about the same time I bought the mower bought a new Stihl weed wacker .Nearly gave the owners wife a heart attack,me spending money .It came with a tank of mix gas at 50 to  1 with ultra and a pack of little bottles thrown in .Using same it was supposed to extend the warrantee .Which I did but not at 50 to 1.I don't know if one is really better than the other or not. It does however spark lively conversation at times . 8)

Well from past practice it really hasn't exploded yet but give it some time .Before too long the 100 to 1 crowd will show up followed by the race gas crowd then it will explode . :D It might even morph into a bar oil thread after a while .That could prove to be enlightening .

Amsoil Saber at 50 to 1 . Best part is the mosquitos leave as soon as I crank up the saw . That alone is worth $ 10.00 a quart .
A bunch of chainsaws a BT6870 processer , TC 5 International track skidder and not near enough time

You could fog for mosquitoes cheaper than 10 bucks a quart .SAE 30WT at 16 to 1 could do the same thing .I had a ragged out '68 El Camino that was a good fogger .Worn out 327 that got 18 miles per gallon of gasoline and 50 miles on a quart of oil .Back then the oil was 69 cents a quart so it wasn't  so bad .
