Default C-tec2 oil?

Is anyone running a different oil in their C-tec2?

I don't want to drive 180miles tomorrow to pick up oil if other people have been successfully running any other oil.

I have several gallons of oil that i have been running in all my sleds since 2006. I can't see this electric pump being much different as far as capabilities compared to the old manual pumps.

Would love to know the answer to this as well. The amsoil video was very educational.

I have had great luck with amsoil and redline synthetics. They mix just fine with any manufacturer brand synthetic oil.

I have been running different oil in my wifeís 600 CTech since 2015 with no problems. My brother is a Skidoo dealer so I can get their oil for free so I have ran it in all my sleds since 2005 without any problems at all. Havenít had enough snow to burn all the Cat oil out of my 800 Ctech yet this year but will run the Skidoo oil in it when the time comes. You arenít going to hurt it running a different oil and they canít deny a legit warranty issue because you werenít running their oil. Heck Cat has change oil at least 5 times in the last 10 years. Iím not an oil professional but have put a lot of hard mountain miles on a lot of sleds over the years and have not had a single motor problem since the wide spread piston issues in one year of powder special, and have never really run Cat oil except for what the dealer puts in it when new.

Not really oil related BUT. If you can get ski-doo oil for free because your brother owns a ski-doo dealer. WHY do you ride a cat? Wouldn’t you have a much better deal from him? Just curious I also ride cat but would like to know your answer for future argument purposes with ski-doo riders lol

looking at the facts(tech sheets):

AMSOIL:
Kinematic viscosity @ 40C: 29.9 cST
Pour point: -56C

Ctec:
Kinematic viscosity @ 40C: 26 CST(thinner than the AMS)
Pour point: greater than 40C(so actual point unknown)

I will run the Ctec in my sled just because of the fact that is designed to run in that motor. And its locally available

He rides a Cat also His dealership is a rental dealership only. I could still get a sled if I really wanted but there is no way I would ride a ski-doo. They just have never built a sled that is predictable and is able to do what I want it to in the trees. Maybe if you deleted t motion, cut the floppy edges off the track etc etc and got used to the stupid handlebars etc etc. Ski Doos rental program is better for what he does so it makes business sense but his personal sled is always a Cat. He could take any one of his 850's when he goes riding but would much rather ride a Cat. I could give you a list of 10 more things I/he doesnt like about the SkiDoo but its pointless to bash with people when they have spent 12K because their sled will always be the best in their mind. I obviously have the ability to ride an 850 anytime I want and have spent time on them helping them break them in every year. I will say the 850 is better than the T3 but its still a Skidoo. Many people love that "Skidooness" and thats why they ride them. I do not love them.
