Amazon has the XLF for $15.19 or so, $18 for the premium plus (both subscribe & save, add a buck for regular order). Anybody know the difference between these two? Seems like XLF is probably the same stuff just with some extra additives?

I’ve been involved in the lubes and grease business for about 15 years. Not all oil is made equal, but more expensive doesn’t mean better. Carbon build up kills 2 strokes...plain and simple. If you keep them decarboned and fresh plugs, they will last. TCW3 calls for specs that The oil needs to fall under, but it’s all in the additives and quality of base oil. Full syn, vs. blend. Most of the branded oil is made by small independents. Citgo does not make most TCW. They have two plants in Cicero, IL and OKC, and TCW ain’t a priority.

I change the plugs, impeller and lower unit gear grease regularly, got the plug indexing down to a T. lol. makes me think i know what i'm doing. never done a decarb, how is this done? i do have the EV-Diag software, and know the very basics with it.

I’m sure there’s a video somewhere. It is VERY important to spray de carbon in a 2 stroke yearly at a minimum. Depending on the engine, the application will be different. Keeps the rings from sticking and breaking in the exhaust port.

I'm sure Acie's and Redwing has done it several times over the years, when they've done the tune-ups. But as of recently, I put myself in charge of maintenance, that can be good for my pocket book, but bad for my motor. Thanks for heads up, headed to utube, I'll get-er-done asap.
