Hey guys. I was looking at the specs the company from china that makes the Zbox engine gives us and i found this.
It says "Lubricating oil Two-stroke machine oil (or 10W/40, 10W/30 machine oil)"
Does this mean we can use normal 10w40 car engine oil and put it into the bottem end of the engine?
has anybody tryed this does it work??
This is what the website says.

This will probably help explain why dumping oil in the case won't work:

A two-stroke

Just use a good quality synthetic 2-stroke oil formulated for air-cooled motors and you'll be good.

I do put a teaspoon of oil into the crankcase of the engines before I start them. I use, 2 stroke oil and not car engine oil.
