AMSOIL How It Is Made

AMSOIL For Any Engine
Cold Pour Test: AMSOIL Synthetic Oil versus Conventional Oil
Neglected Small-Engine Equipment

For 2-stroke engines, there is the important aspect of getting oil into the engine. The oil may be mixed with the fuel prior to putting the fuel into the tank (pre-mix), or a special injector pump mounted on the engine may inject the oil into the fuel-air stream. When an injector is used, the oil is stored in a small tank.

Another point to consider, most of the oil introduced into a 2-stroke engine is burned in the cylinder. Therefore, a 2-stroke oil must burn clean without producing excessive deposits of carbon on the pistons and especially on the piston rings. As important is the amount of oil residue that blows out the exhaust.

The chart below helps remove the guess work of choosing the 2-stroke oil for your application. AMSOIL Synthetic 2-stroke oils provide excellent lubricity and cleanliness. They prevent plug fouling, ring sticking and exhaust port blocking. Their anti-rust formulation counteracts damp environments often found in 2-stroke applications.
