Hi I have recently purchased my first Vespa, it is an Indian lmc 150 with a Pelini 186 kit on it and I was wondering what is the best 2 stroke oil to use? Do I go fully synthetic or semi synthetic
Thanks

Two-stroke oil is not always easy to find. Lambretta UK forum guys buy it in gallons from garden centres. Rock Oil Groundsman



I use this in my Honda

Shell Advance VX



or maybe Brian Gray Yamaha may have some Yamalube 2R. I have used that in racing Karts.

If you want exotic then Castrol A747 but it is not for autolube and should not be mixed with other oils so not really good for touring in Scotland!

Can you get Amsoil?
Would you like to sell Amsoil?


Seriously, any low smoke synthetic made for motorcycles with an oil injection system will work. Conventional oil with a picture of a weedwhacker on the bottle will also work, but not as well nor as long. They've gotten millions of miles out of those engines using the cheapest oil available for sale when the light finally stopped flickering and stayed on.
