I used to use royal purple when i first started pre mixing with the adapter. But it doesn't really matter to much, now I'm just using Walmart 2 stoke.

Yeah, that Fuchs looks really good; it's FC/FD/TC, and claimed to be low smoke and clean burning.

I fill gas when it needs 8 gallons and put 4 oz. of Mobil 1 2T which is not made anymore, but I'd run this.

Car runs great after 35k miles and 11.5 years.

My 6 speed auto never used much more oil than a piston car.

Don't trust your sohn, put 1/2 oz in gas , also.

That makes sure.

Your cheapest bet is FD-rated Citgo 2-stroke premix oil at Menards. $16.99 gets your the 4 qt bottle.

For those pre-mixing, I've been trying to find the cleanest/quickest option for pre-mixing before fuel fill-ups. For $8 I found an oil spout that I can attach to the current quart I'm driving around with and seal up, keeping messes to a minimum. It has a long clear tube so that I can monitor the fluid flow and assure it is going into the fuel tube instead of the side of my car and is flexible for easy storage.

I found a reference online through Wal-Mart, but I bought mine at O'Riellys and I'm sure any other auto parts store will have them as well.

I personally just use Rotary Bum bottles.

Drive until the fuel light comes on, dump a bottle in, and done.

I just use a Lucas oil bottle (graduated on one side) and carry a roll of paper towels in the trunk.

Those bottles tend to leak. I once had a 1L Peznnoil oil bottle sitting in my trunk organizer. The lid was stripped and undid itself, which made a big mess. The Rotary Bum bottles never leaked, and if their lids break(not often, but it can happen; just don't caveman it), just shoot them an email and they will give you new ones(shipping is free for the States and like $5 for Canada).

It's also better for more precise measurements. Don't have to mess around with the 1L bottle at the gas station.

The RotaryBum kit looks pretty good.

I didn't get the kit with black cases, just the bottles. I do like that case, though.

I have 6 bottles right now, 2 for premix and 4 for engine oil. The premix bottles go in the straps on the side of the trunk organizer, while the engine oil bottles go in a cut cereal box in the trunk organizer. Works for me.

Some people also out them in the rear console container.

I bought a bunch of these several years ago and they are still going strong.

I have it sitting on top of a folded hand towel. No leaks in 7 years. Not sure precision is really a thing here.

Iíve been using Idemitsu. The 4-oz. markings embossed on the side of the bottle are the only measuring tool I need. Piece of cake.
