    Looking for advise on a question. Unable to find a small bottle of Mobil 1 for lurication, can I use 2 stroke syn oil instead, that I can find in pint size bottle.

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

    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.
