Is the goal to mow grass or own a vintage lawn mower? I think 2 cycle should be reserved for things you hold and carry the weight like chain saws, blowers, weed whackers. At least as far as OPE goes.

Reminds me of the story that Kmart got oil from the bottom of the barrel while Walmart got the good stuff...... Now that was funny. Same as oil in quart bottles is more pure compared to the jugs...... Just as funny.

I remember at Tires Plus that the filter book had a section "Buyer's Guide." In that section, it would list a Champ part number, and a list of all the cars that it fit. I thought of it as a filter guide book in reverse.

For less than the price of M1, PP or VSP at Walmart, this would be fun to try. A few runs followed with a UOA would be interesting for the out of warranty Fit or maybe your well-used Mercedes. The price of this oil is certainly right.

The only warning I'd have against 5w-40 is cost over the short, factory mandated OCIs in your vehicle. You can get a 5w-30 SN/GF-5 conventional, but you're not going to find a 5w-40 conventional. Up here, Delvac 1 ESP 5w-40 is priced much the same
