I agree with Jon. Two cycle is made to burn. Get a quart of straight 30 weight synthetic. A quart will last you forever.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I've been using this:

I use it in my truck, my street bike, my quads, why not my guns? Nothing against the Mobil, I just happen to have plenty of the Rotella in the garage already.

I agree with not using 2 cycle oil for the same reasons already mentioned.
