2 cycle oil

Is there a difference between 2 cycle oils? I went to Walmart the other day, and saw 2 cycle oil, and then out board 2 cycle oil. Is there a difference?

there is a difference in them one is for hotter burning engines that rev higher and I believe it was a ash formula and the other is for more mild 2 stroke motors and it's either low ash or ashless. contact moparman he will have the answer. I just run the cheap supertech 2stroke oil.

It does, wait for your VP44 to start acting up. Then add some. :Thumbup:

I read one of mopar1973man's web pages. Does the 2 cycle oil increase the btu's? I was able to figure out that it does increase the lubricity, but what can I add during the winter to keep the fuel from gelling and not counter act the 2 cycle oil?

Also, I feel like a complete dumb***** asking but, what does my tank hold exactly?
