Opening a new one means you were riding enough to use up the gallon before the new one which is cause for celebration.I've been using Ski-Doo synthetic oil since mid-90's. (19 sleds)
Only had 1 blow up - 1995 MachZ 780 & it was a pinched oil line....nothing to do with oil type.
I still get excited when I get to open a fresh bottle.
Get the XPS.
Lube-Tech?I paid $60 at my dealer also. I said something about the price going up $5.00 He said that is the price BRP is charging. The plant where it is made is in Louisiana and was hit by one of the hurricanes this past fall. They were still doing repairs to get up to full production. He said he is getting shipments in, but not in the quantity that he wanted.
That's who makes Poo oil I was toldLube-Tech?

For all three: Arctic Cat, BRP and Polaris. Someone here has visited their plant. It says a lot that all three use the same company. It may be similar for the pistons. Look for a cast replacement for oem pistons that has the same quality. Over the period of two decades the aftermarket are heading towards forged pistons for a reason. I use Stihl chain oil for good reason, not just because the bottle is orange. I never cared about chain oil until it cost me thousands of $$$$ in repairs and loss of work. Our oil knowledge is based on opinions. In many ways I want to fault the OEMs for not developing a standard, but what drove them to develop a 2S oil in such a small powersport market is what drives them to compete and make a profit. The two stroke is somewhat of a dying market. It don't see them going away anytime soon for snowmobiles, but the cost is further specialized oils. My beef with the E-TEC - specifically the 850 - is not allowing owners using XPS Synthetic to turn down the oil pump like was done with the Evinrude. I think it is a two part problem, one of heat and the other of logistics.That's who makes Poo oil I was told
You did good>>>>I bought 4 cases (12 gallons) at 40 per gallon and I thought I did pretty good>>>Either way I am not complaining>>>I had 1.5 gallons left still though from last year>>>Bought 11 gallons of xps at haydays for $37 a gallon. Still had 4 gallons at home from last year. Guess I should should've bought more
