I'm still on the first gallon on my toxic 270. Should I keep it at 32:1?

I usually run my new engines at 32:1 with lawnboy oil for 2 gallons then switch to synthetic oil at 36:1

I agree. Breakin with dino.

You get one chance to not glaze your cylinder, and using synthetic doesnt help.

Glazing happens with light loads and if you put intermittent load on it, it should be fine, granted you might have to break it in 2x as long.

Its well known that dino oil seats your rings best, allowing for maximum compression and minimum oil usage. Glazed cylinders use oil.

Saber 100:1
I run all my heli's on Amsoil Saber at 100:1 and have no problems at all. All pistons look great and I run the same on my planes with DA motor's. Again no problems.

But Amsoil
Is a thicker oil, if you run it at 32:1 eventually it will make more carbon in your machine then others.

If you run it leaner it will be better but 100:1 I wouldn't trust in anything heli related maybe planes can get away with it.

But I still hear and see people running amsoil at 64:1 having their motors burn out. It will run OK but if you have a lean or hot run you're going to lose the motor.

So thicker causes more carbon, leaner causes more danger to burn out the motor, not my choice of oils but you can decide this is just my opinion.

I switched to Amsoil over the the winter and am running 40:1 as recommended by TRM. Did require a little tweaking on the needles coming from Penzoil marine, but nothing major.

So far so good.

Hey Rototerrier
Just FYI I ran Amsoil at 40:1 for some years and about 3 gallons worth of it. Hanson always told me there was carbon inside my motors, even though I didn't really see any affects from it.

I did change over to Penzoil after finishing my Amsoil stock that Chris Bergen recommends, and after some time Hanson told me the motors look alot cleaner inside.

Just FYI from the been there done that experience.

Funny thing, opposite happened to me. When I was sending my engine in (multiple times) to hanson, he stated I had lots of carbon build up....all from pennzoil.

My personal experience is that I have carbon build up from every oil I use. I suppose the common factor here is me. Maybe I run too rich...but I haven't burnt one up yet...so I'm not complaining.

Rototerrier, what oil did you use before ?

Assoil :100
I know a guy that has used Assoil :100 at 64:1 for years and has not had any problems

I had been using penzoil marine. I switched to amsoil since that's what TRM uses.
