Hi jetmike007 your right .Thats exactly the colour and smell of marvel mystery oil that's exactly what i use.You were able to buy it at canadian tire but no longer able to purchase in ontario in smaller amounts.Because i live next door to the border my buddy picks it up for me at meijers for 3.99 for 32oz bottle.But for those unable to pick it up transmission fluid with dextron will do.Sure beats paying 2.49 american for 2oz bottle of hobbico after run.

Personally, I find the small bottles of after run oil to be very conveniant (they fit into my field box which means that it gets used!) I buy one or two every few years. $6 every few years is cheap.

If you want to buy in bulk - all the more power to you, but not everyone wants to buy a huge bottle, and then buy a container suitable to keep it in. I make the descision to buy the small ones, so I dont consider myself getting "ripped off", I choose to do so.


PS I tried to post this yesterday but I couldnt get logged on for some reason...

one of my worst crashes was with a old bushed K&B engine that I had on a plane that the wings folded and separated from the fuselage... the engine, still running, came screaming down 300 feet and burried itself into the ground 3 feet. After digging it out, and cleaning it up it was no worse for wear (I still have it). If that were a bearing equipped engine, I am sure the bearings would have needed replacement.

if its got a wing or two and an engine - I like it!
