Just wanted to see if anyone here runs the Arctic Blue Semi Synthetic 2cycle oil in their sleds. I usually run Extreme 2cycle from Fowler but the arctic blue is $10 a gallon cheaper at fleet farm. It meets all of the ratings. I have a 2000 ZL 580 and a 1999 ZL500 so no power valves.
Thanks
Eric

We ran it for 5 years in our old fan cooled (no PV) skidoo's. When we tried it the sleds still ran very good so we kept using it. Oil didn't smell bad, and we had no oil related issues in that time. (we used the white bottle, I don't know if that's semi syn or not).

then bought newer sleds :D

Running VES Gold now

I tried to run it in my ZR600 EFI a few years back because I thought too that it was cheaper. For me it smoked worse than the Cat oil. I have been running AmsOil for the last 5-6 years and it smokes less, but its cost is up there. If you don't mind the smoking then go for it, but my Green Belly'd ZR got black from running that stuff.

Yea not sure how the oil company sleeps at night. Well I imagine they sleep very well. Heck our gas prices jumped today to $3 a gallon regular. Gonna need to take a loan out to gas my sled up this year lol.
