Shell Aviation announces product for two stroke engines

Shell Aviation introduced a new lubricant Jan. 20 designed specifically for two-stroke engines. AeroShell Oil Sport PLUS 2 is a dedicated two-stroke engine oil developed for light, very light, and ultralight two-stroke engines such as the Rotax air- and water-cooled series engines. Shell said the product was designed to meet the varying power outputs and higher operating temperatures experienced by two-stroke engines, and to help reduce formation of deposits. The announcement was made at the 2010 U.S. Sport Aviation Expo in Sebring, Fla. Shell also manufactures AeroShell Oil Sport PLUS 4, designed specifically for four-stroke engines in light sport aircraft. Sport PLUS 2 can be purchased online.
