Greetings. . .

All Jet Central turbines perform well with the use of any of the aviation turbine oil products used at the rate of 2.5% . Additionally, most of the synthetic oils such as Motol, Amsoil Dominator etc; mixed at the same ratio, perform well.
Mobil DTE lite is another good lubricant. This oil however, must be mixed using the 5% ratio.

Thanks for the question. . .

So it doesn't have to be "turbine oil", Amsoil dominator is ok then?

Yes, Amsoil Dominator is a preferred oil recommended by Jet Central. This is my third season using Diesel and Dominator. Do not blend more than 2.5% if using Amsoil Dominator.

Regards,
Eric

Hello,

Like Eric said you can use any Turbine oil or Amsoil Dominator as well. I use to use Turbine oil but have always mixed min at 5% so 32oz per 5 Gallons of jet fuel then I switch to Mobile DTE and also used at 5%. The only problem with the Amsoil is that if the engine sits for a while it does get sticky and on the smaller engines this can make the starter motors work a little harder.

If if you have any further questions please feel free to give me a call.

Smoknrv4:

Do not under any circumstances use Amsoil Dominator at the ratio of 5%. Jose' answer left this important fact kinda hanging out in the "blue." 5% is excessive for our turbines UNLESS you are using Mobil DTE Lite. . .then it is mandatory. Amsoil at 5% does such a great job of lubrication, it leaves a coating on the bearings. 2.5% Amsoil mix prevents the bearing from gumming (I do not like this word) or adding resistance to the bearing during start up after the turbine has been sitting for extended periods of time which would be the case if 5% ratio is used.

Regards,
Eric
