2 stroke oil

I know it has been said on here before but as a senior ribber I cannot find it on the search, ah theses senior moments!! As the price of the leading brands is sky high does anyone use other brands like Morris and can they recommend?

Rock Oil

In the Olden Days () I would have put the kettle on and sat back while Codprawn did battle with the Proper Oil squad.

Has anyone heard from Codders lately? He's not been on for ages.


My yam doesn't like the Rock Oil much. It oils up at low speeds quite badly.
I changed to Morris last year and I'd recommend it. No oiling issues at all. Can't tell the difference in use between it and Quicksilver.
