More on 2-stroke oils
Hi, I'm new to the site. I appreciate all the repair info
and advice available on the forum.
For those of you looking for a deal on 2-stroke oil,
Cabelas has a very good JASO FD rated oil hiding
on their shelves. JASO FD is currently the most demanding
Japanese 2-stroke oil spec out there, and Cat, Ski-Doo
and Polaris power valve oils are all JASO FC or FD rated.
Cabelas labels this as their "Signature 2-cycle semi-synthetic
marine oil". It is rated at TCW-3 and JASO FD on the label,
so the snowmobile crowd never gives it a glance.
Normally $20 per gallon, but commonly on sale for $14.
Yes, that is per GALLON. I have been running it in a 2004
Firecat F6 for 2 winters with no problems. I did a lot of research
on oil specs before I dared try this in my F6.
Just my 2 cents worth on a good deal.
