Default All about Two stroke (2T) oils

I was looking for a thread on 2T oils but couldn't find one so here it is. Lets share reviews, experiences and places to buy them from. I'm listing some of the better ones and their prices per liter that I know of.

1. Motul 800 - Rs.650 (new stock is Rs.780)
2. Motul Motomix - Rs.195
3. Petronas Sprinta 5000 - Rs.325 (new stock will be Rs.457)
4. Petronas Sprinta 4000 - Rs.260
5. Castrol Jettx - Rs.200-300 (depending on old or new stock)
6. Yamalube - Rs.203

Here are some pictures that I have.

You left out some of the best selling 2T oils - IOC's Servo 2T, BP's Max 2T(?) and the all-time favourite of many, Castrol Super TT.

Motomix... but it seems to be marketed as Kinetic specific (from the picture above)?!? Dunno about its applicability in other vehicles, but the name "Kinetic" is enough for me to back off... lol!

Btw, what did you find good about it?

And Straight6, have you used any of the oils you have mentioned? Would be good if you give a comparative review.

May be the recent one's came with Kinetic packaging
one's I used came as Motul 2T mix in white coloured packing.
engine felt slightly smoother as compared to other oil i had used,but then Motul was the best i had used.

I have used the Servo 2T and the Super TT but I don't consider those amongst the "better" ones. The Castrol is just too expensive for what it is. I remember buying a 500 ml can of it for Rs.128 last .

Why don't you check with your Gulf dealer if he has Gulf's fully synthetic 2t oil? Post the price when you do.

I have used Jettx and Yamalube. The Petronas is lying at home because my bikes engine is being completely rebuilt and ported so the mechanic has advised not to use the fully synthetic oil for the run in period. I'll either use Jettx or Motomix if I can find it.

Jettx is good but I think it is too expensive for a mineral oil. The bike definitely runs smoother than when using Super TT.

Yamalube is what I used last before the bike went for the rebuild. I think its a good oil and I noticed less smoke compared to Jettx. Its made by Exxon Mobil for Yamalube so it can't be bad.

After the run in, I'll be using the Petronas fully synthetic oil regularly. Will post my experience then.

^^^Yes, straight6, Jet X seems like an average oil which is overpriced.

What about Sprinta 4000 for Rs. 260 that you have mentioned? Is it a semi-synth or what? Have you used it?

Its a semi-synthetic oil and a better bet than Jettx but my mechanic has advised against that one too while running in. I will be using the 5000 in my RX after the running in so will give this one a try in my Kinetic.

Motul 800 is the best oil I have used so far. I have used all the other oils above other than the Petronas.

Motul 800 comes in both Off road and Road race. Prefer offroad to road race. Have been using for almost 3 years now, around 14500 kms.

I stick on to Yamalube 2T oil for my RX-100 very religiously after getting the engine overhauled.

Any idea how Petronas Sprinta 5000 works with the 2T engine ??

Also where do i get to pick one in Bangalore ?

You don't really need it if your bike is stock. Its only available in Bombay and Delhi.

Prajeep will be the first to use it and let us know how it works.
