Synthetic oil

I have been using Opti-4 oil for the past two years. It has worked pretty good for the engines, they seem to work a little better with it. The thing that I really like is that they will double your warranty on the engine if you started using it when the engine was new.

I use Valvoline semi-synthetic grease.
Opti-2 for 2 cycles
Opti-4 for mowers.

I fully trust every "miracle" product out there, and think they are
worth every penny, even "Slick 50".
