Default Re: Boat Oil in my bike

I'm the cheapskate of the bunch.

I'm running a mix of ALL the 2 stroke mix oil that was hangin' around in partial plastic bottles for the chain saws, trimmers, and outboards I have run.
AND some Yamalube, and Motul which I consider both to be top quality oil.

The mix works well in my ht 48cc.
It had a clicking wrist pin bushing when I got it, and it still clicks!
(Time to find a replacement, though)

OK, my ford... I think it's abt $20 for oil and a filter when they're on sale.
Got 150k on the truck now... it runs well.
I think I changed the oil 8 or 10 times... maybe...
2 air cleaners swapped out.

It's probably best to do what the wise fellows suggest. :-)
I'm just gettin' by...

Good luck
My goal is cheap, reliable, personal transport, below the tax collector radar. Fun counts for a lot!
