Air Cooled 2-Cycle

Low-Ash Engine Oil for Low-Output 2-Stroke Cycle Engines

Kendall® Air Cooled 2-Cycle Motor Oil is a low-ash engine oil designed primarily for use in small, low-output (less than 50 HP) 2-stroke cycle outboard engines. It also is recommended for use in small air-cooled 2-stroke cycle engines such as those found on lawn mowers, weed trimmers, and leaf blowers.

Features & Benefits

  • Low-ash formulation helps minimize engine deposits and pre-ignition
  • Minimizes piston ring sticking and helps reduce exhaust port blocking
  • Protects against piston and cylinder scuffing
  • Reduces spark plug fouling
  • Protects against rust and corrosion
  • Keeps engine parts clean
  • Dyed for easy visibility when mixed with gasoline


  • Low-output (less than 50 horsepower) 2-stroke cycle outboard engines(1)
  • Lawn-care equipment (mowers, weed trimmers, leaf blowers)
