Reading through the back posts I can see that the subject of oil types has been 'well' done. However there is one question that it would be nice to get an answer to, given I am just about to get me first gasser.

I have ordered a bottle (1 litre) of the Vario 2 stroke oil, this was just over £18 !! At the same time I notice that you can buy 2 stroke oil for a strimmer at around £2 a litre. So, whats the difference, whats the super special ingredient thats in the 'heli' oil to bump up the price soooo much?

Yesterday I picked up a bottle of Formula K2 Synthetic Racing Oil after hearing and reading about it. It does cost more than most, but looks very impressive.

Also picked up a bottle of Hi-Test to try as well since I was there and it looked good too.

I use the Castrol TTS synthetic......works good for me. About £12.50 per bottle.
