Gas two stroke oil

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I'm running out of Penzoil - my supplier has left the business.
Get well Grant

Anyway - perhaps it is time for a poll -
what oil are you using in your DA, DL, DLE etc and at what mix - 30:1. 50:1, 100:1

I've been running Penzoil at 30:1 in my DLE 30 and DL 100 - according to the manuals for each of my motors.

Re: two stroke oil

I'm running Stihl dino oil at 32:1 through my DLE 20; after a litre of that is used up I'll be switching to Stihl synthetic.

Re: two stroke oil

Penzoil is known to be one of the best brand for 2-cycle air cooled engines, it can endure a higher temperature range while still retaining its values. Highly recommended
by users of the Rotax 2-cycle engines being used by Ultra Light Flyers.
Most Auto Parts Dealers can get it for you provided you buy a case/box at a time.
Synthetic has its values but prone to have rust on your bearings if engine stand
still for awhile.
Kit builders are a dying breed

Re: two stroke oil

Break in on Penzoil 32:1 then switch to Stihl Ultra HP at 50:1

(Craig - be glad to bring some Penzoil to NOIC if you want - I bought a case several years ago and still have 5-6 bottles I can certainly spare)
