WHAT KIND OF castrol OIL DO YOU USE??Originally posted by doorider@Oct 23 2002, 03:51 PM
I used Doo Synthetic for about 1000 miles and then Castrol for another 1000 - makes no difference the valves looked the same (I cleaned them after 1000).
I would use Castrol and blow the savings on Vforce reeds
Castrol does make the doo mineral oil.Does that mean that the bombi oil is exactly the same as the Castrol blend without the blue colouring?Nobody has ever been able to answer that one for me.There can be very subtle differences in oils that may or may not make a big difference depending on how your sled is stored,driven what type of cooling system it has etc.I have had awesome luck with the bombi mineral oil.It doesn't guck up the rave valves,foul plugs and I have never had an oil related failure of any kind.The castrol oil is much cheaper.I wish I knew for sure if its the "exact" same oil or not.Right now I'm not willing to take the gamble when I "know" the bombi stuff works good.Originally posted by charlo@Oct 23 2002, 03:12 PM
I was using Doo regular oil but just swiched to castrol. Heard castrol makes doo oil. The only difference is that they add colour to the castrol. Waaay cheaper :sly: It looks like gas is going to be expensive this winter so I gotta save somewhere ???
