    For all the guys that ask "What oil should i run and why".

    Over on one of my favorite snowmobile forums, we're lucky enough to have a former Gasoline chemist on the boards. He has put alot of time and effort into testing most of the name brand oils and has a highly sophisticated method of testing with in depth results. Of course he doesn't post everything he finds since us average joes wouldn't understand what is what, but he does tell at what rpm they breakdown and what kind of ingredients they contain. Some of the results may change your mind on your "preffered" oil of choice. It's a long read but IMPO well worth it. Here's a link.http://www.hardcoresledder.com/forum...ow-i-know.html He also has another artical about gasoline additives that he tested to combat ethanol problems, as far as what really works and what doesn't. That can be found here.http://www.hardcoresledder.com/forum...your-rush.html

    For those of you that seen post# 145 and 163.........If any of you want to buy some legend oil we sell it at the shop. We have been using this oil for years! We feel it is the best out there and I am glad that someone put it in black&white with other oils being compared. Just justifies what we have been say for a while. If any member wants some just PM me and I will give you a price on shipping. Prices are below and case will save you some money. For you guys on the board here the ZX2R is the best bang for the buck.

    ZX2R case(4 gallons) 130.00 plus shipping (32.50 per gallon) saves 2.50 per gallon
    ZX2R 5 gallon pail 160.00 plus shipping (32.00 per gallon) saves 3.00 per gallon
    ZX2SR case (4 gallons) 150.00 plus shipping (37.50 per gallon) saves 2.50 per gallon

    ZX2R gallon 35.00 plus shipping
    ZX2SR gallon 40.00 plus shipping

    I didn't see it in his tests but I'm starting to think my Amsoil HP injector doesn't measure up if he didn't really like the Interceptor. Looks like the VES Gold may be in my future. If shipping is reasonable I will buy a case of the Legends from Jay.

    I believe he is going to once he is done testing. Nice prices on the legend oil above. The ethanol treatment thread is a good read too. ALOT of snake oil out there.

    I got a few PM's on oil and so you know a case of oil weighs about 30 lbs. You can plug your information into UPS and get an idea......
