As well as the special additive they put in, that make it outperform. I have used the 70-90W gear lube for years in the L.U. and the syn. 10w30 in the cars as well and have had very good results. The HP 2C is made to a higher level than TCW3, so they say. Has anyone used it?

    FMP I have not used the Purple but I have to say that Klotz has very similar claims and I have had great luck with their products. I have been using synthetics (Mobil 1) in my all my 4-strokes for yrs. Gary

    The Alisyn sheet, and I can say by talking with them that this is no snake oil. I was told since they do not use any solvents, this put the flash point at 500-600*F. I will check on this temperature .

    Jay Smith recommended Pennzoil from WalMart when I talked to him. He also said he wouldn't run Amsoil in his weed eater.

Good or bad---BTW the breakin on the 280 was on Penz dino oil then about 25 hrs on Alisin, No problems of any kind
