    Depends on what I'm running it in. I normally used Klotz R50 in my hydros although I have run Pennzoil. I normally use Pennzoil in my other boats.

    I run Maxima 927, but I also burn alcohol in my engines.

    I use TCW-3 oil in my pleasure motor, but Klotz Techniplate with Castor in my race motor ... because it smells nice

    Yamalube is fine. So are Mercury and Evinrude oil. I like Evinrude

    ..."The turbo is stock compression for greatest possible combusion chamber volume, but runs 100LL and 1 quart to 4 gal (16:1) because it detonates at 3PSI boost on 93UL."

    Time for an intercooler! Lots of cold water out there to make it work.

    I am familiar with Klotz and Amsoil but does anyone have any results and experience using Alisyn? I am curious and may try it out soon.

    For info on gasohol, google "sta-bil white paper".

    Among other things (and generally they are talking about cars), they are saying that the usual E10 and E15 blends do not generally draw much moisture "right out of the air," as is popularly imagined. They certainly will pick up any condensed moisture in the tank. For cars, this used to be thought of as a good thing, with products called "gas-dryers" sold at auto parts stores for just this purpose. The alcohol in gasohol will also tend to loosen up any glop in the tank, and some of this crud will go through a brand new fuel filter. You should be able to use gasohol without further issues if you remove the tank and hard lines from your car or boat and get them steam-cleaned or boiled out in a hot tank and follow this with a rust-remover, rust-converter chemical treatment. With the tank and hard lines back in place, get new soft lines. The alcohol will eventually (several years) start to degrade standard soft lines, causing the inner surface to slough off little chunks. That done, the gasohol should keep your tank from accumulating a lot of new gooey deposits. Chevron is widely considered to have the best additive package to keep stuff clean. If you don't use the vehicle frequently, top up the tank; use Sta-Bil or similar product for long storage, and fogging oil has already been mentioned.

    Even smart guys sometimes forget that pre-mixed 2-stroke oil will settle to the bottom of the tank over time. Shake up that tank. This means shaking up your chainsaw or weedeater that has sat in the shed for a few days, your 2-stroke dirt bike should be rocked back and forth, and so on. Otherwise you might have the common experience of an engine that pukes out a lot of smoke until it gets past the oil-rich layer of fuel in the bottom of the tank, and then siezes on the oil-lean fuel remaining.
