t140v: Hi H2e, no idea just know that 20/50 was specified for the oil tank, has to be very low ash as otherwise is bungs up the apex and side seals and kills the engine, Castrol GTX or its equivalent was reccomended.

h2e: thanks T140v , thats a good start , is there any reason they dont run 2stroke in tank ?,

t140v: Morning H2e, most people reccomend a good quality 20/50 for engine and oil tank 10/40 for the gearbox, 20/50 in the gearbox makes the starter clutch slip. Don't forget the oil filter you need a quality filter with a non return valve.

timpa136: You might try Rustico in Long Beach, Ca. They will do it or sell you the concentrate. I haven't personally used it yet, but personally have seen excellent tank results and you can wash up with the concentrate, it is that safe. Tim
