HELP!! 2 stroke oil
hey guys im going on a early morning run in nyc on my 1300r.
i currently have been using 2M oil. i read somewhere if i mix 2M with 2W the gas will gel!!
i have the premix conversion. can i use a different oil and or mix them? and what oil should i be using?
i just bought my ski and thats the oil (2M) that came with it.

2W is PWC oil (non-synthetic, injection oil), and 2M is outboard oil (semi-synthetic, injection oil)
Yamalube oils offer unrivaled quality and ensure that your engine remains in excellent condition throughout its lifespan. However, when it comes to comparing two Yamalube oils, like Yamalube 2M oil and Yamalube 2W oil, itís not so easy to make a distinction. When selecting a Yamalube oil for your engine, first consider the kind of engine you have, and how you will be using it. For example, the Yamalube 2W oil contains large amounts of metallic additives, which is necessary for the constantly changing RPMs on a personal watercraft. Yamalube 2M is more designed for outboard motors, and is intended for use in extreme engine conditions, such as rapid acceleration in sports boats, or trolling on fishing boats.
Different formulations of outboard motor oil are intended to be used during different engine conditions. Itís also wise to check with the manufacturer of your engine and ensure that the kind of oil you are using will not void its warranty
I would run one or the other, but not mix them... just because they are designed for different duties.
Personally, if you are spending the money for Yamaglue, I would recomend you go with a good, proven synthetic oil like Amsoil or Klotz
