    Oil for 206

    Is Dyno-K good to use for 206.

    206 engine will run on about any type of oil. Its a very mild race engine. Dyno-K should be fine.

    Hey Steve,
    I have to ask (I am an Amsoil dealer) have you found any power gains in different oils in the 206? I've heard of power gains
    Using Joe Gibbs Driven oil and got it on pretty word that one engine builder (no one on here) was recommending a fifty mix of Amsoil Dominator and 4t.

    Doesn't a special blend or brand of oil make them look like an expert?

    Just run straight 4T it's a no brainer.

    Yup, a 50/50 mix.
    I don't need to be convinced. I sell 4t and Dominator and I'm with you Sundog. I judge 4t on what doesn't happen to my motors. It's a no brainier. But, racers will but any snake oil under the sun if there's a good story attached to it.
    I figured I would just ask an authority since I don't have my own Dyno.

    As they cannot import the Briggs 4T oil to Canada for some reason, we are sold the Dominator oil by Briggs dealers as the same product. I think it is a way to sell you two quarts of over priced oil.

    I've not heard of the mix you are talking about, but we have used (and sell) both Driven (Gibbs) and 4T.
    My question would be which Driven oil did they see an advantage with?

    I would agree that a lighter weight oil accelerates quicker than a heavier weight oil. With that, comes a trade-off in cushion.
    Is it worth it, becomes the next question. Is performance worth the cost? At what level are you racing? Is OIL the only thing keeping you from winning?

    All pretty good questions to ask yourself before buying any product on the market.
