Default Redline 2t methanol oil

Some time back someone asked about Redline methanol oil. I have used some years back but the results were inconclusive. However recently tried it again but mixed with BP grade 93 castor and results was outstanding . I report back in a couple of months with details. DO NOT REdline in YS engines you will be looking at a very expensive repair bill .

Apparently the Redline oil is petroleum based if it swells up silicone based seals and o-rings. (not pure synthetic) Are you looking for an alternative for the Klotz type synthetic? If I understand correctly you are mixing your own "synthetic"/castor blend. Does the Redline leave more carbon than the Klotz would? Do you remember one of the very first synthetics called Steen-C back in the 60's? Sure had a distinctive smell. (but not as distinctive as Blendzal....
