Ive been doing research on 2 cycle oils and would like an expert opinion. This is a very controversial topic but I have yet to see any scientific explanation on it.
Looking at the additive package of a 2 cycle engine oil, it seems all it has is some calcium, and the rest of the additive package is slim to none.
Average 2 cycle engine oil additive package (Cheap Super Tech and expensive Amsoil):
Aside from issues such as falling out of suspension with oil, smoke and carbon blocking up exhausts, would a 4 cycle engine oil lubricate better than a 2 cycle oil in a 2 cycle engine?
How much of a difference would the additive package of the 4 cycle engine oil make in a 2 cycle engine? Would the zinc protect from wear better at the expense of running dirty?
How would multi weight oils such as 15W-40 react to being mixed with gasoline?
Assuming both the 2 cycle and 4 cycle oils have a high quality synthetic base oil, and the engine is jetted correctly to avoid excess carbon and exhaust spooge, would 4 cycle oil actually protect the engine better?
It seems like 2 cycle oils are made simply to burn clean and nothing more. I have always used synthetic 2 cycle oil in my engines but have been curious about this.
Which Amsoil 2-cycle oil, Saber or something else?
