As colder weather is approaching, I am preparing for my first time storage of my 503 powered ultralight. I downloaded the Rotax manual which describes the process for long term storage, but I can only find the recommended oil in 55 gallon drums. And it is pricey. What foggers do you all recommend and how can I find them? Thanks!

I never did anything to store my 2-strokes for the winter, except for switching to avgas to get the ethanol out of the tank. The oil mixed with the fuel does a good job of preserving things.

I use Sta-bil fogging oil on my snowmobiles for summer, and outboards for Winter.

Spray can enough for multiple engines. Available many auto parts stores.

Amsoil also makes fogging oil
