Default Which 2-stroke oil is best solulable in gasolines?

I ask this because there is a a myriad of different brands of 2-stroke oils on the market (at least it seems to me like there are).

The reason why I ask this is because a 2-stroke oil that is solulable in gasolines will stay homogeneous with the gas regardless of how long it sits out, unless you do something chemically to split them apart again.

I know that many RC 2-stroke oils contain synthetics in them, Klotz, etc. and not all of these are solulable in gas, so that is why you have to shake the gas can to suspend the lube in the oil in the gas again. I know, this is a no-brainer step, but it would be nice to know that your gas and s-stroke oil dont split up like vinegar does from your salad dressing (Bad example, since salad dressing does not come apart until a really long time).

Maybe I should be asking this question to a chemist, but if anyone knows by practical experience or just happens to be chemically inclined, let me know if my thoughts are correct, incorrect, or missing in some bit of info.

I only buy about 5 liters at any given time. That way I know my gas is good.

As for oil I use this.

O and to answer your question I have no clue.

Echo! I've used that, not in my RCs, but for my chainsaws and weed eaters. Those work okay I guess, but I dont knoe the composition of Echo oil. I have to look at it closely to see what parts are oil and what is synth.

Hey mate
I'll suggest you sould use a "premix only" kind of 2stroke oil for the rc engine family.Like u said,lots of oils out there but not all of them for premix usage.For example , motorbike and/or marine outboard engines keep the 2stroke oil in a separate tank and they're equipped with an oil pump in order to feed the carb/injection.This kind of 2stroke oil isn't designed to be premixed with the gas therefore it might be a risk using this on RC engine

I use Motul 800 2T synthetic, it is used in race bikes in Europe & in competitions, so it is great for the RC engines…

Panolin is another 2-stroke oil I have read people using all the time. Just form you point of view, what are it's downsides?

THE BEST OIL EVER=AMSOIL

now i have never run the euro stuff but both me and my brother have over 6 years each between 2-stroke dirt-bikes and snowmobiles. we have tested almost everything and i can confidently tell you that the best is Amsoil. it is fully synthetic, but it will cost you. if you run good with what you got, good for you but if you want the best you should switch to Amsoil.

I ran Amsoil in my street bike and was the worse oil I ever ran. Keep in mind I have been riding motorcycles none stop for over 35 years. So I personally will not try anything else they sell.

Panolin oil tends to separate from the mixture at low temperatures []

I run amsoil in my dodge cummins...for diesels it's definitely the best oil on the planet as is the trannie and diff oil...haven't tried their 2 stroke oil though...I've always used belray for my 2 strokes, near on 30yrs now with the stuff, time they sent me a t-shirt

which ratio did you use? we found 40:1 was the right for us, it also depends on what kind you get they make 3 different kinds of 2-stroke motorcycle oil. i forgot which kind we got but i know it was by far the best oil.

My street bike is a Harley and will never run Amsoil again. It breaks down much quicker then other oils I use. When I rode to Alaska from Macon, Georgia I had to change it at 2,000 miles when using Amsoil. On other good synthetic oils like Mobile 1 I have no problem getting 5,000 miles before an oil change. I have been a motorcycle rider, mechanic and machinist for over 35 years.

That is the very same one I use too, I bought like 5 bottles of that from DDM, and it actually smells rather sweet as you are pouring out of the bottle. I guess that lube stays suspeded in the gas okay, but it does come apart after maybe a week or two if left in the can sitting.

As some no I run nitro as well and I am use to shaking the bottle before I fill my pit bottle. I probably will run the Klotz Super Techniplate when I finish my 5B SS as I like the fact it has some castor in it.

I use Klotz oil....I mix it in a 1 gal gas can..no need to worry about getting seporated...That is enough gas for me to have fun running and bashing..
When the can is empty time to go home any way...Just enough fuel for this old man to have fun...And this way for me it is always fresh Fuel.AKASlawhammer
