Default Re: Break in secrets

lowrider, walmart sells conventional oil in 16 ounce bottles with a ratio cup built into the bottle for like $5-6. it will say supertech universal mix 2 cycle oil. not sure if it says air cooled on the bottle, but i know it is. its conventional, not synthetic. i have been using it for over a year. its maybe not the BEST oil to use, but it works, and it is made for air cooled engines. as far as i know, it wont hurt the engine if you mix it right. I run 32:1, which is 4 ounces of oil to a gallon of gas. buy a one gallon gas can, and you can mix the oil and gas in the can before adding it to your tank. for breakin, add a little more oil. there are a few others on this forum that use it as well, and I havent heard any comments about it shortening engine life.
