    What oil do you use for a 2 stroker. synthetic or natural? The older
    motors used regular oil and also needed higher octane gas. Anyone
    use any of the octane boosters?

    You can read my post here and what others said about 2 stroke oil.

    But I should have said 12 years.

    Use your owners manual for octane rating.

    Olefin is correct in his post about walmart oil. I use it at times, but for better performance and less smoke, go to your synthetics, and maintain an 87 octane
