    BeeWee engine oil

    Hi,

    I've just finished my low smoke 1 litre oil blend, and am after some suggestions of anything else people are finding good for 2 strokes. My wifes Milan is using something that blows a shitload of smoke, and I'm paranoid that my beewee farts out as much smoke. The Castrol oil I use at the moment is low smoke, and I'm not sure if its the ducks nuts. Any suggestions?

    My Super Cheap doesn't stock the Shell brand, so I have not had a chance to try that, but I have always thought that I could be getting less smoke.  Currently use Fuchs Scooter, and its Low Smoke, but I have not seen any difference

     I'll go there on the way home Dak and see if they stock it in Albury. Is it really low smoke. I was given some good oil by............., and it worked a treat, near no smoke at all. Cant remember what it was though. May shoot him off an email.

     i was using Caltex Full Synthetic ... but then I heard that semi is better?? I'm not sure what they  put in after its last service (I'll check), but I've never noticed smoke.

    The stuff you would have got from .........would have been a Motul based 2-stroke oil, he buys in bulk.

    I used Shell VSX2 in the Jolies, no smoke with a nice, non-oily fragrance.

    I used Motul before in Isa on the Jog I dont think I have used it in the Bee Wee.  The Shell SX2 is the one I cant get at Super Cheap (well in 1L bottles anyway)

    MOTUL, thats it. It was low smoke. I tell you, I dont notice smoke when I'm riding, just sometimes my wife follows me to an intersection 2 km away, and says "Geez, It blows some smoke" but that was just the old stuff, BP 2 stroke oil.

    Re: BeeWee engine oil

    I used the Motul as I got it from my bike shop.  I started on the Fuchs as it was what Super Cheap stocked, and here in Brisbane, thats close by, but I dont know who stocks the Motul around here.  I'll have to find out I guess :P
