do I have to use Mobile 1?

just picked up a 2cv. It didn't come with the owner's manual and the guy that I got if from kept pretending that he didn't speak English or understand my French no matter how loud I spoke. Anyway, I think that these things have 2 cycle engines. So the question is, do I need to mix Mobile 1 with the gas to maintain my warrenty or can I use any type of oil?

Yep, it's a Dyane - Are u bringing it to the States?

The French attempt to modernize the 2CV - same innards though.

Personally would prefer a 2CV Charleston.

You just need to get specially formulated 2cycle oil, not motor oil.

"Mobil 1", is generally used in reference to motor oil. You walk into a store and ask for a can of Mobil 1 and they give you motor oil, not 2 cycle. I was merely making a point of that, and that you need to be specific. Tubs, is it just me, or do you try to follow every move I make so you can diss it?

I'm not bullying you, I'm just saying that this is probably part of Chuck's ever going unique brand of humor. Chuck is a very rich man, odds are he just put this up as a joke.

Oh, my bad, thought he was serious. You can disprove my theory on perpetual motion in the W164 forum, though.(Just kidding)

By the way the top picture is a diane the bottom one is a 2CV.

Both need regular input of sugar and carrots[:D]
