I like the fact that some people do some testing and shoot the results on the net.
However what i disagree is the fact to do a proper testing is to go by the engine manufacturer specifications. Wich in this case the oul to gas ratio is not observed.
DLE engines are meant to run at 30/1 no matter what type of oil used.
Every time a customer bring back a DLE for problems i asked which type of oil he is using and the ratio.
Most of em run 40/1.
And i've seen a few using Klotz techniplate synt/castor blend....avoid at all cost PLZ.
Now lets ask ourselves a simple question ?
Who makes the engine? DLE or the oil manufacturer?
I'd rather follow the engine's manufacturer recommendation.
I own 4 DLE and 2 Saito Gasser. No issues so far.
Happy Landings to all
Fly hard crash with style!
