Is there any brand of 2-stroke snowmobile oil that–how do I put this politely–errrr, doesn’t stink like ####?
Man, I just hate that obnoxious cloud of crappy smoke and having to put everything down that I own through a decontamination cycle to get that gawdawful smell out.
I recently acquired the minty vintage Yamaha Venture that my neighbor brought over for me to go through. He decided to sell it and offered it to me at a very good price, so I bought it for a cabin sled. I have no idea what oil he was running, but hooooooo boy does it smell.
I’m going to use up as much of the existing oil as I can stand before adding new oil to the injector tank, but is there anything I can use to bring down the stink quotient?
Here’s what I’ve heard before:
– Amsoil Interceptor – probably the most often mentioned oil as far as lowering the smoke.
– Klotz – guys used to talk about the unique “Klotz smell”. Not sure if this was a joke or if it really did smell better, but some used to even compare it to a kind of fruit smell. Is this really a thing?
– BRP’s full synthetic, not sure of the name.
Other suggestions, of course, are welcome.
