A blender pump in Texas?

Recommended Posts

Saw it with my own eyes...took a photo just so you didn't think I was any crazier than I really am.  I'd heard they were there but wasn't sure if they were still around.

4520 S Georgia, south of 27.

Went back to work in the IT business and made the oil biz online and weekends.

 

Amarillo has 2 blenders.  One near 40 and one near 27.  Both addresses are in the E85 Prices register.

 

2 stroke oil?  Haven't found one that likes the E85 any better than the others, they just kind of tolerate it but not much in the way of excelling with E85.

 

E85 4 stroke oil for cars is pretty well done for most.  Look for API SN rating AND ILSAC GF-5 rating on the same bottle.  They will stand up to the additional moisture that ends up inside the engine when running E85, especially in short trips, cooler climates.

 

What city?

If you are still in lube oils how about an update  on best 2 stroke oil for mixing with ethanol and also for full E85 in street cars.

these are both blenders though?  Dan doesn't have them listed as blenders.  What blends do they offer?

 

I like the idea of seeing more blender pumps out side the upper mid-west.

 

As for the e85 4 stroke oil... that has been a question of mine as well. Do you have any suggestions on brands/styles/types of oils that stand out?

I've found these to mix properly in 2-stroke applications:

I've also found some oils, like most conventional 2-stroke oils, and some synthetics such as Redline's 2-stroke AllSport, to fall out of suspension with E85, either partially or fully.

 

But what do I know?  I just convert old LawnBoy mowers to E85...  ;D

I'm very partial to one brand, Amsoil,  but I'll offer another one that's pretty popular and available nearly everywhere,  Pennzoil Platinum.  Well liked by a lot of knowledgable guys.

I run 100-128 : 1 mix with Amsoil 2 stroke and have for 20 years.  Another thing we find with E85 is that it dilutes the synthetic oils a little more than is acceptable to me.  There are several labs I've found that have tried to get their synthetic 2 stroke products to run like they want with E85 and the dilution as well as fallout is a problem.

 

The moisture from burning E85 wreaks havoc with colder running 2 strokes and really sensitive power valves in the higher performance motorcycle, jet ski, snowmobile and outboards.
