Hi all.
I'm after a bit of (rookie) advice. I've bought my first ROTAX max EVO (upgraded chrome top). I have bought some Shell advance racing M stroker oil to run it with as that is what the previous owner ran. At my first meet the guys noticed my oil was clear and theirs was blue dyed....
Are there different varieties of castor or synthetic mixes under the brand of shell M??
If so what is the correct one to run?
I was running at a 1:20 mix. 5L petrol and 100ml of oil
Thanks in advance

Shell Advance Racing M is a Castor Oil and has a normal oily colour.

Not entirely sure why your friend would have some that is a different colour. Given that itโ€™s Castor you should also run with more oil. 120ml to 5 litres is about right.
