Default Rhino fuel/oil ratio

The book says 2.5-5.0 percent oil per 5 gallons which should I use. I was thinking about just using 5. More oil for bearing lube right? Will hurt anything? Also I will be using JP8, which is the army version of jet A-1 for fuel and 0-156 oil which is royco 500

Manual states 2.5% oil ratio. That is 1/2 quart per 5 gallons of kero or Jet A. If using Mobil DTE lite, the ratio is 5% or one quart to 5 gallons. We have tested and use BP 2180 and 2197. Any purpose mfg, turbine oil is acceptable. We have no knowledge of royco 500.

This requirement is for all turbines we manufacture with exception of the Turbo Prop which requires 5 % or one quart to 5 gallons of kero or Jet A

If using Jet A, no need for prist. . .waste of money and serves no purpose.

Thanks for the question

Eric

Feel free to use 5%. . .one quart to 5 gallons. No issue and no problem doing so. As I stated, 2.5% is all we require. Some customers use 3% and are happy with the performance. Some use and have used 2.5% for years. Again, no issue. Knock yourself out. . .pour that gold in there !

I will have turbine oil for sale at Kentucky for $10 per quart. Only 4 cases available.

Thanks,
Eric

Royco 500 is the oil used and recommended in the full size L-39 engine, the Russians recommend it to be used in the AT-25 turbine.
