Kendall 27 yr old 2 cycle oil Would you use it?
I have 2 sealed quarts in plastic containers of Kendall 2 cycle oil that says "Kendall 2 cycle oil and 50:1 SAE 30 wt Motor Oil" that is 27 years old. Would you use it as a 2 cycle oil mix for snowblowers, weed wackers, hand and back pack blowers, chainsaws that are also 15-40 years old?
Would you use it in a lawnmower engine as a 30wt oil?
Now for the "younger" generations, way before this oil was made, ND 30wt oil was used as 2 cycle oil for outboard motors, chainsaws, rototillers, mowers "back" in the 1930s, 40s, 50s, 60s, and even into the 70s, before 2 cycle oil was "invented", then used, then widely became popular! and then 2 cycle was only used, the only oil that was used was ND 30wt (ND for non-detergent, LOL, again before detergent oil even existed and invented! Then it was only 30wt oil, then detergent oil came about and they put ND on the label to distinguish between the two. I still have ND 30wt oil in the garage as some old machine call for it, and you can still buy it today! I have a rototiller, Graham Paige, made in the 40s or so, still made today, that calls for and still calls for ND 30wt. What a great rototiller, 2nd or 3rd best.).
