Default Evolution Oil

Hello,

I was wanting to see if Pete Bergstrom or David Eichstedt would post some specs on this oil or any tech data that relates to running it in any size gas engine. Hour ran, load, heat etc.

My concern is in larger engines.

Also please post who is running this oil.

Thank you.

Red Line or Stihl seems to be the consensus in our club. I don't know anyone who uses the Evolution oil.

The Evolution oil is Cool Power oil from Morgan's in Enterprise, AL.

The same oil is used in Go Kart engines so it must be OK?

In my area most people use either Stihl Ultra or Red Line.

I here about Red LIne but not sure where to get it local, even Stihl Ultra is not that easy to get here.

I've been ordering Morgan's oil in cases for a while for my glow engines and when I found out Evolution oil is the same as Cool power I ordered a couple of gallons of it.

Red Line is probably the "most available" synthetic oil and can be found just about anywhere. Most of the chain auto parts stores carry it and if not in stock in a local store, can be brought in from the warehouse in a day or so. Stihl not so much .... but both oils are readily available on line from hundreds of vendors. If ordering from Amazon for one example, I have to click my mouse 3 or 4 times, don't have to type a single word and its on the way to me.

Morgan's Cool Power oil seems to be quite popular in Australia. They seem to advertise it a lot more there than they do here.
If it was not very good, we would see jillions of posts about it on the internet. The Cool Power oil that they sell in Australia is advertised as being good to use for both methanol and gasoline fuels too.

Yes, have been using Cool Power for a long while in glow motors.

Just branching into gassers and intend to use it in these as well.

Good to hear from you over the pond. Thank you for your response.

Last time I was out I used the same mixture in the 3W 75i. Even at 25:1 it didn't leave any oil on the plane.

OK first flights today with gas engine. Wow! (do you ever go back?). My engines not in large category. 15cc 20cc 30cc-single+twin.
Running on 32:1 95octane (no eth.) Cool Power blue oil.
Here we can get CP red I think for nitro cars mainly. CP blue regular viscosity for general use. CP purple multi-viscosity not sure of its use.(helis maybe?)
Another hour or so running will drop back to 40:1 or 50:1.
Have used it for years 18-20% in glow motors. Don't see why it won't be just as good in gassers.
Time will tell I guess.
from "across the pond" in Oz.

It would be better if you stayed at 32:1 with whatever oil you use. Evolution oil is good stuff.

Just a quick update. About 2.5-3 hrs running 20c.c. gas engine on Cool-Power blue.

(Very mild weather for start of winter.)

Have run this mix at 32:1 from first start-up. Motor running fine.

(Still can't get over the vertical climb with this set-up.)

Cheers from Oz.
