    At Fleet Farm, ran across something called Tall Timber oil. It seems to be a local thing, and it's made in Minnesota. It's intended for chainsaws and other air-cooled small engines and it only comes in packs of 2.6oz bottles to mix with one gallon of gas. A single bottle is $0.99, so I figured I'd give it a try.

    The Tall Timber seems to run well so far, and it actually seemed to run cooler when I put my hand on the bottom of the crankcase, though I can't be sure of that. It's rated International "ISO-L-EGD", so It should be adequate for these engines. I usually run Amsoil Interceptor, but it's intended for liquid-cooled snowmobile or outboard engines. Nobody near me carries Saber, which would be better suited to a moped engine. I may order some Saber to try, but for now I may keep using this Tall Timber stuff. Has anyone else had good luck with it (or even heard of it)?

    Never heard of it, but it's probably bottled for Tall Timber by a major oil company. Is it synthetic?

    It's bottled by Como Lube, based in Deluth, Minnesota. It's full-synthetic and produces very little smoke.
