My dealer told me to stay with the Ski Doo 2 storke oil for my 2004 Legend but it's extremely expensive. Any reasonably price alternatives?
Thanks, Airpix

my dealer sells oil bulk... ask your dealer if you can just get your 4L jug refilled... it's only like $20. I use Turco 60%, but regular 2 stroke to break in my sled.

not going to bother to explain it here, but synthetic is simply put, a better oil

Use this analogy: There are only so many women in the world, none of them are perfect, with Synthetic oil, your making your own woman, a perfect (or near) one

:D

dnrtheil, here is a link to read all about Amsoil: http://www.performanceoiltechnology.com/snowmobiles.htm
Reason you do not see them available in the public eye, is they work through certified dealers/distributors. It is slowly leaking out to such places like Fleet Farm, only because they stand behind the product too. Reason being they want feed back to better perfect the product unlike most manufactures thet just want to sell, sell, sell.

(I am not a Amsoil distributor, just a customer.)

Amsoil is good. I get mine at Fleet Farm. Ran out last week and all I had on hand was Artic Blue Synthetic injector oil. Seemed to smoke less and not much of a noticeable difference. Cheap too. Anybody else run that?

Oh yeah and my opinion on factory reccomended oils is to just go "aftermarket" synthetic. Sure you can't go wrong with factory stuff but you usually just pay for the name.

Ive been using the Bombardier mineral 2 stroke injector oil, can pick a 4l bottle up from the local walmart for $19.97 or something like that. In my previous sleds that required to be mixed, i usually went with Castrol 2 stoke oil. Have never used anything but those. Have been thinking of switching to Klotz, but not sure if theres a distributor nearby.

And in reply to the factory oils,ski-doo-cat-poo-yama would be loosing lots of money if they told you,"Use aftermarket and not use factory".There in it for the money also.
