Motul Outboard Synth 2T

Rating: 4.9

Motul Outboard Synth 2T

Product developed by the French company Motul, special attention in which was given to ensure maximum environmental friendliness, available for two stroke engines. Outboard Synth 2T – Clean ester-based synthetics with a complex of detergents and low surfactant reducing additives action. In fact, in order to force environmentalists to shut up, manufacturers have brought the composition to a rather tight framework, prescribed international certificate of quality and safety TC-W3.

The obvious advantage of this synthetic composition is the ability to perform their functions when using fuel sweep in proportions 1: 100 (1 serving of oil to 100 servings of gasoline). And, if necessary (in the case of high power motors), work out on mixtures 1:50. Combustion exhaust differs in small smoke, which indicates complete combustion oil in the working chamber. Yes, and the composition itself, even with the release of oil (which is typical for old boat engines) does not harm much environment – it is 85% biodegradable. how the result, the owners of boats with two-stroke engines have the opportunity to purchase, albeit not the cheapest, but very high-quality oil, Fortunately, there are plenty of it in the domestic market.

Advantages

  • very low consumption;
  • high carbon resistance, low smokiness
  • optimal protection for outboard motors and revving;
  • excellent lubricating and cooling properties;
  • 85% of the components are biodegradable.

disadvantages

  • high price.

LIQUI MOLY Marine 2T (5 L)

Rating: 4.8

LIQUI MOLY Marine 2T (5 L)

Semi-synthetic high-quality German product rated due to lubricity and cooling high-speed and old two-stroke engines. Despite the truncated complex of filler elements takes its expense of extremely thorough cleaning of the oil base containing a minimum of impurities fractions and having a homogeneous structure. Authentically known that the complete freezing temperature of LIQUI MOLY Marine 2T is -39 degrees Celsius is the best result in the segment, which looks even quite redundant.

Due to the stability of the oil film and a large number This composition perfectly fights against getting into the engine. extraneous components such as salt water, condensate, acid-containing gases and other negative environmental factors. Is worth also note outstanding washing abilities, combined with negligible small formation of soot and exhaust smoke. Perhaps the only the negative point in LIQUI MOLY Marine 2T is the high price, which is leveled during the use of oil due to the large work resource.

Advantages

  • a large number of neutralizers of harmful environmental factors, introduced into the product;
  • low consumption;
  • good cleansing functions;
  • the possibility of mixing with synthetics and mineral oil.

disadvantages

  • pretty high price per liter.

Yamalube 2-M TC-W3 RL Super 2-Stroke

Rating: 4.8

Yamalube 2-M TC-W3 RL Super 2-Stroke

Yamaha engine oil whose golden age gradually leaves due to the obsolescence of the composition. Yamalube2-M TC-W3 RL Super 2-Stroke – a typical mineral water with increased expense and good protective properties, not prone to tanning and giving minimal smokiness. Despite the low cost acquisitions at application gives costs comparable to acquisitions real synthetics. This is primarily due to the need increased consumption for the formation of a fuel mixture: despite the assurance of manufacturers that the ratio of 1: 100 will be quite enough, users note that the motor is not very stable even at low speeds. In this regard, in practice, the mixture may achieve a ratio of 1:50 or 1:25, depending on the power unit and the number of working revolutions.

What really pleases consumers in the Yamalube 2-M TC-W3 RL Super 2-Stroke is the expiration date. According to their assurances oil perfectly copes with the test of time, without losing its properties from long languishing in the crankcase or canister. Mostly bumpy outboard motor operation is associated with a deterioration in the state of gasoline, while the least claims are made against the oil.

Advantages

  • low cost;
  • low smoke;
  • low carbon formation;
  • good stability with the required concentration;
  • the durability of the composition, due to the use of raw materials of high quality.

disadvantages

  • gradual withdrawal from the market and the possibility of acquiring only in networks of the official dealer.

PATRIOT Super Active 2T

Rating: 4.7

PATRIOT Super Active 2T

The fourth place in the ranking goes to semisynthetics from the Chinese Patriot, whose main chip is expressed in a low price. The same feature causes a high demand for the composition in the network retail stores, mainly among those whose experience The use of outboard motors has more than a dozen years. Comically comparing Super Active 2T with an autol (mostly for cost), users note good quality oil in engine cleanliness component after use. Not the most technologically advanced formula with few additives provides low carbon deposits, but with a large smoke, which is why complaints to the manufacturer often fly from environmentalists.

According to experts, the key advantage of PATRIOT Super Active 2T is a high degree of versatility: composition can pour not only into boat engines, but also into two-stroke engines snowmobiles, motor vehicles and other garden tools in which he works surprisingly smoothly. The users like this, in this connection store shelves with this oil are emptied pretty fast.

Advantages

  • very low price;
  • low level of deposits on the pistons when used;
  • low consumption for the fuel mixture;
  • universality in terms of serviced equipment.

disadvantages

  • high smoke caused by the combustion of a number of components, included in the oil.

MOTUL OUTBOARD TECH 4T 10W30

Rating: 4.9

MOTUL OUTBOARD TECH 4T 10W30

Another Motul representative developed as universal composition for outboard and outboard motors type. At the heart of its creation lies a unique technology Technosynthese, taking into account the subtleties of work and design absolutely all four-stroke machines presented on the modern market. Proof of this are internal developer tests, as well as independent expert experience showing amazing results on parts of the conservation of the work resource. The second important plus OUTBOARD TECH 4T 10W30 has become a high resistance of the oil film to rupture due to high temperatures. At 40 degrees Celsius semisynthetic viscosity is 77.8 mm2 / s, while as at 100 degrees the indicator does not fall below 10 mm2 / s.

The pour point of the oil is -33 degrees Celsius, in therefore worry about the deterioration of engine performance (unless snowmobiles, but use them at this temperature impractical) not worth it. Ultimately, consumers do not get the most expensive semi-synthetics with the parameters of a full-fledged synthetic oil, the working conditions of which are more than enough for rollback season.

Advantages

  • absolute versatility in terms of serviced four-stroke engines;
  • acceptable price;
  • high oil film stability even at high operating temperatures;
  • low freezing point of the composition.

disadvantages

  • not found.
