Oil for 503 drifter?


Recommended Posts

Guest Maj Millard

Castrol Active 2T is the way to go. Absolutly no reason to use synthetic oil in our 2-strokes. One: it's an unnecessary expense that is not needed. Two: come decoke time it'd be cheaper to throw away both pistons and fit new one's, than to try and decoke, if you've been using full synthetic. Three : Full synthetic oil is hydroscopic (readily absorbs water) and promotes internal rust on bearings and crankshaft. Active 2T has shown that it provides good internal rust protection

 

Castrol Active 2T does the job well, is inexpensive and readily available, well proven in our engines, and recommended by Rotax ....................................Come by my 2-stroke operators' forum at Temora at 11am Saturday if your there, it'd be good to talk more 2-stroke ! .................................Maj...024_cool.gif.7a88a3168ebd868f5549631161e2b369.gif

l use Penrite Hi-per two stroke semi synthetic low smoke this was the replacement for the green sliml buy it in 20l drums though my mates shop..

I purchased a 200L drum of the penrite oil before they stopped making it, I am now down to my last 25 or so litres, and am looking for a replacement. How have you found the penrite hi per now that you have been using it for a while ? Still happy ? What rpm do you run at ?

Yeah, Castrol Activ 2T in my 582. Was asking a Penrite agent the other day about Hyper and he said it was fine for 582's. Just bought a 20l drum of 2T from Castrol agent in Qbn - cost $147.50. I'll take Ross Millard's recommendation on board as well. I'd stay away from the self mix, sounds like stuff for Mr lawnmower man.Don

Hi turtle

 

Drifters going well Im flying it down to wayne fisher on my next break to get the new skins fitted and it will be nearly brand new, I ended up swapping oils and running with the castrol as thats what everyone else in town is using and we have a dealer that stocks it.

 

Cheers Jamie
