could this 2 stroke oil mess up an engine?

Recommended Posts

this is the only 2 stroke oil my local shop had, seems it is designed for scooters: http://www.motosport.com/dirtbike/REPSOL-MOTO-2T-TOWN-2STROKE-OIL

 

would this mess up a cr250 motor?

 

this is the description found on the repsol website:

 

Repsol Moto Town 2T: Lubricant for general use 2-stroke engines. It is suitable for all kinds of models and particularly suitable for use in stop-start city driving. It protects the engine from wear, keeping exhaust ports clean. It surpasses the Jas M FB 345, ISO-L-EGB and API TC quality levels.

Well... "Lubricant for general use 2-stroke engines. It is suitable for all kinds of models"

 

I would use it if I was just putting around and had no chance to get better oil... Wouldn't use it regularly though. Is it synthetic?

specs on the website and back of the bottle say: 

 

Quality level:

  • JASO M345 FB.
  • ISO-L-EGB.
  • API TC.

 

but the description on its wesbite and seller websites seem to emphasize "urban" use and make no mention of off road use. this is the repsol line up: http://www.repsol.com/ES_EN/PRODUCTOS_Y_SERVICIOS/PRODUCTOS/LUBRICANTES/NUEVA_GAMA_REPSOL_MOTO/MOTOCICLETAS_DE_2_TIEMPOS/DEFAULT.ASPX

The main determining factor of this type of oil is that they operate lost greasing, i.e. it is mixed with gasoline to lubricate all mechanical elements and then end up being burned in the combustion chamber. It is therefore very important that the components of oil create low smoke formation.

It will work fine. It's a light viscosity, injector compatible oil. Mix it with a low ratio like 24:1, especially if you are riding in sand.

Man don't use that... It will def not agree with your engine. Make sure it's synthetic two stroke oil. I use belray. Another good oil is Lucas oil. Don't use amsoil or that. You will regret it. You can get a buddy or drive to a shop I'm sure . It will be worth it. I'm telling you if you run that oil I guaranteed it will blow in 2-5 rides. Honestly

Any two-stroke  oil that has either API TC, JASO FD or ISO-L-EGD rating is acceptable for our engines.

 

API-TWC-3 oils are not.

 

The oil you asked about is fine.

You "guarantee" it will "blow in 2-5 rides"? Really? And what do you base that on, reading the tea leaves?

 

You have absolutely no idea what you're talking about.

 

God damn I love the internet...:lol:

Seriously? You know absolutely nothing whatsoever about oil, claim that just because it's a non-synthetic it's going to make his engine blow up, you think that 50cc scooters don't turn more rpms than your 250,and you're calling ME a dumbass? :lol:

 

Son, I've been building engines probably longer than you've been alive, and I also just happen to know a wee little bit about oils.

 

But forget about what I know, what the engineers that set standards for lubricants based on what manufacturers spec for their engines is what matters.

 

Go look in your manual for your bike to see what specs it requires for pre-mix oil. I guarantee you that these will be among the standards listed:

 

API TC, JASO FD or ISO-L-EGD

 

The oil he is asking about is API-TC AND ISO-L-EGD rated. The same standards that are listed in your manual for your bike.

 

And non-synthetic? Who gives a shit? Yamalube 2R is one of the best pre-mix oils on the market, and it's not a true synthetic, it's a Group II+ blend. Hell, most pre-mix oils are only API Group I-, II-, II+-, and III- mineral-base oil stocks, not true Group IV synthetics.

 

 

 

Now why don't you go learn something about what you're effing talking about before you post a bunch of ridiculous hyperbole that can't be supported by ANY factual data. And if you want to debate oils, fine, bring it. I haven't been in a good oil debate in awhile...:smirk:

Three TTers chime in about your oil choice and their post count is in the tens of thousands. One guy with less than 100 posts tells you it`s a bad oil and your bike will blow up. Up to you who you gonna believe.

Oh my gosh!!! If it doesn't cost $10 for half a quart it must not be made for high performance motors, we musn't run it!!!  :devil:  :banghead:

Starting lines and trails all over are filled with bikes that run anything from the best synthetic mix oils to the cheapest crap they can find, at anywhere from 20:1 to 100:1, and most of those engines live to play another day. Mixing an oil that meets the specs for your engine at a reasonable ratio certainly isn't going to be a problem.

 

I would still mix that oil at around 26:1 because it's a low-viscosity injector oil.

Yeah, i'm pretty militant about mixing oil at 100:1.  I don't understand why someone would skimp on premix like that.  Having said that, guys can mix it any way they want.  I get lucas oil really cheap because my son works at o'reillys auto parts.  Good oil, I run it at 32:1 and haven't had a problem.  got 40 hours out of my 125's last top end with a single ring piston and it probably could have gone longer, didn't have much blowby at all.

Since when is Amsoil two stroke oil not synthetic?  As others have stated, there is nothing wrong with non-synthetic two stroke oils, it's just not what I prefer to use.  I used Belray before they offered synthetic (late sixties, well before you were born) and had no trouble.  If you don't know what you are talking about, don't say anything.  Two to five rides???
