That sounds pretty good - I guess most guys when shelling out the dosh for a turbine will run exactly what they say and not try anything different... I know if Wren told me to use "X" type oil I would also.

If you run the engine regularly there should be no problem?

I have my engine stored at my parents indoors (in the spare bedroom - warm, dry) but I plan to run it maybe two or three times throughout the winter to keep things "working".

Hi Guys,re the oil thing the only thing special about turbine oil is the high flash point,this was important in early engines that passed oil past the compressor and on into the combustion chamber.Turbine oil would not burn and clog up the fine holes.Most engines now pass the oil from in front of the front bearing back down the bearing tube threw the rear bearing and out. If using two cycle oil you may get a very small amount of residue on the front of the turbine wheel but not enough to effect balance,and yes doing one run with turbine oil should clean it up.I have some papers written by Air Canada on turbine oil [nasty stuff] newbe to the group,Mert.

Frequent runs is all it takes (so I'm told) to keep things happy and well with 2 stroke oil. The next time I'm on the horn with the guys in Denmark I'll see if I can't get a few more details about their experiments...

Happy Holidays to all!
