In 1947 XERF Del Rio, Texas advertised a product called "Motor Overall" and some said it helped and some said it screwed up their engines. If any additive worked well the oil folks would break their backs and toot their own horn to be the first to use it!

Jeep 4 Life...I have a g1 and it takes outboard marine oil. Maybe check and see if that`s what you need.

Use only a 2 cycle oil only. Additives may not burn well and cause serious carbon buildup in 2 cycle engines. Oils with a TCW3 rating or better. Most if not 2 cycle oils are rated TCW3. I use gallons of the stuff mainly Wal-Mart's Super Tech. I have been using it now for over 6 years in my cart, chain saws, weed eaters and outboards and never had any oil related failures. If you have a super high performance engine look for a better oil but harley's and Yamaha's aren't

I'm not a 2 stroke guy, but shouldn't you use 2 stroke oil for air-cooled engines?

The guy I bought my 2 stroke from said he had been putting outboard motor oil in it so I did too and I haven`t had a problem yet. Should I drain it and put regular 2 stroke oil in it? This thing has been running off of outboard oil for years now, but I sure don`t want to do anything to mess it up
