The Importance of the right two stroke oil and correct fuel mixture for your StarFire Bike Engine….

Why Choose a Synthetic?

Synthetic lubricants are engineered to do the job of a conventional lubricant – but they do it much, much better. Think of them as bionic lubricants, if you will! Though a bit more costly to produce and, therefore, more expensive to buy, these “super lubricants” can actually save you money in the long run.

The primary function of motor oil is to provide lubrication between moving metal parts in the engine. The friction caused by these parts when they move together creates high levels of heat that cause damage unless a lubricant is introduced to the mechanism. A lubricant will smooth the surfaces and enable the parts to move freely against one another with reduced friction and, consequently, reduced wear and heat. This is a function that conventional motor oil can perform quite well but a synthetic can perform far better.

Shell Advance base oil blend and Castrol R30 are specially selected as a choice in two stroke oil to help provide maximum protection to all key parts of a 2-stroke engine, especially the pistons, bearings and exhaust system. The choice of additives selected depends on the amount of stress and chemical attack that the bike components need to withstand.

As 2-stroke oil is fed into the bike via the fuel system, the oil and the important additives that protect it are continually consumed by combustion and replaced with a new fuel oil charge. As a result the oil is only exposed to the moving parts for a very short space of time before it is consumed by combustion. It is therefore very important that the oil is of a high quality to provide the protection the engine needs. Shell Advance base oil blend is specially selected to provide this protection to all parts of the engine and is exclusively formulated to help keep bike engines and exhausts cleaner.

Using less sophisticated oils may result in higher friction and more wear to the bike leading to piston and cylinder scuffing, piston ring sticking and bearing seizure – problems that all affect your bike’s performance and ride. Shell Advance also minimises deposits during combustion, and so reduces the likelihood of blockages which can eventually lead to engine seizure.

Using Shell Advance or Castrol R30 also safeguards the engine from corrosion and will help prevent other problems such as spark plug fouling, pre-ignition, exhaust system blockage and excessive smoke. All this adds up to a cleaner engine and exhaust system, helping StarFire motorized bike owners get the most out of their bikes for longer.

How to calculate two stroke fuel mix ratio….

The recommended calculation ratio for a new StarFire bike engine motor (18:1) 18 parts of unleaded petrol to one part quality synthetic two stroke fuel oil for the first 500k’s or 15 litres of fuel, for the run in period. (6 x 2.5 tank fills)

The typical two stroke fuel container ratio mix calculation procedure is as follows:

  • One litre equals – one thousand millilitres (1litre=1000ml)
  • For 18:1 ratio divide (1litre) 1000 by 18 = 55.5ml of 2 stroke oil, add 1 litre of fuel
  • For 25:1 ratio divide (1litre) 1000 by 25 = 40ml of 2 stroke oil, add 1 litre of fuel>

The ‘running in’ ratio fuel mix for your new StarFire engine motor – ratio fuel mix is 18:1

For a 5 litre fuel container, divide 5000 by 18 = 277ml – this is the component quantity of two stroke oil required to add to the empty 5 litre container before adding the unleaded petrol to make up the recommended fuel mix for your StarFire two stroke engine motor.

For a 2 litre fuel container, divide 2000 by 18 = 111ml – this is the component quantity of two stroke oil required to be added to the empty 2 litre container before adding the unleaded petrol to make up the recommended fuel mix for your StarFire two stroke engine motor.

For regular running fuel ratio – ratio fuel mix is 25:1

When you have run in your StarFire engine motor at approx 500k’s or using up to 15 litres of 18:1 fuel mix through your engine motor – then calculate the two stroke fuel mix in the same way using the calculation…

For a five litre fuel container, divide 5000ml by 25 = 200ml of two stroke fuel oil – add to the empty 5 litre container before adding the unleaded petrol to make up the recommended fuel mix of 25:1 for your StarFire two stroke engine motor.

For a two litre fuel container, divide 2000ml by 25 = 80ml of two stroke fuel oil – add to the empty 2 litre container before adding unleaded petrol to make up the recommended fuel mix of 25:1 for your StarFire two stroke engine motor.

All ways use a metal container to avoid static electricity combustion when filling. Your local filling stations do not normally allow plastic container fuel filling.

Recommend quality synthetic two stroke fuel oils for use in your StarFire bike engine motor are – Castrol R30 – Castrol TTS – Castrol A747 or Shell Advance.
