I have a bottle of the Rotax oil 2 cycle that he gave to me an just want to make sure it is the right stuff is this oil suppose to smell like a gear oil for a car you put in the rear end? Thank you for the help.
The oil was probably a kind gesture, but if it was an open bottle or if you’re not comfortable using it, don’t. I’ve only used Motul and RevClean and can’t remember either one of those smelling like rear end grease.
Check the rulebook for the association you’ll be racing with on the type of oil required and if there is a required amount. Five ounces of oil per gallon of gas is a good place to start.
If the bottle is a round unmarked container about 7″ tall its Rotax gear oil. Rotax 2-stroke oil comes in a fancy yellow container (or black if its an older variety). But the 2-stroke oil should have a label branding it Rotax.
If your mystery oil container doesn’t match either of these discrptions I’d refrain from using it.
