!!!!!!Synthetic Oil and 2-Stroke Oil!!!!!!!!!
I have a couple questions.
Has anybody had any problems switching from regular oil to full synthetic. I've heard rumors of people getting leaks from it, but I would think the problem just existed before and for some reason the synthetic made it more prevalent due to lower viscosities or different molecular structure such as why helium balloons loose air overtime because the atoms are so small they slip through.
Also, are there any benefits to running synthetic or would switching to 5W-40 suffice as a year round application. I live in Montana so temperature ranges from -20 degrees Fahrenheit to 115 degrees Fahrenheit, and if I don't plug it in and it gets down to single digits it's a pain in the *** to start and sometimes doesn't.
Another thing is, I've heard of people running 2-stroke oil in their fuel. I understand the extra lubricity due to ULSD diesel now days, but how much do people add to a tank and do they notice any benefits.
