2 cycle Oil

I have been running for a few tanks and the engine is quiet. I asked a Ford Master Diesel Tech guy and he said it would not HURT my engine, he said it would be fine for the engine. I get it at walley world for under 10 buck a gallon, and use 1 oz per 2 gallons, most people use 1 oz per gallon.

There is a few that are telling me the Synthetics to fine... Like AMSOil has been doing great...

But I tend to go for the Dino... It $8 bucks a gallons compared to high priced Synthetics...



I've managed to save roughly $800 bucks with using the Malmart Supertech... But If you use a high price synthetic it might not be money ahead...

I was doing a search online to see if there were any high or medium ash 2 stroke oil and from what I read there are only low ash and ashless as we are just using our oil to lube before it burns ashless should be better no? But the cheaper the better I would think cuz it's just add lube before it gets hot and burns?:shrug:
