  • Shell AX7 Oil for a 912UL

    Hi,

    We used to use Shell VSX4 before Shell came out with Aerosport plus4 (aimed at Rotax engines).. VSX4 has now been replaced with Shell AX7 oil.

    I was wondering if anyone is using AX7 successfully with no issues?

    I've been going for the Aerosport plus 4 Rotax specific stuff for the last couple of years, but my local shell garage has stacks of AX7 - it's much easier for me to just pop down to the garage to get.

    It's on Rotax's list of 'ok to use'... so I presume must be fine.

    Thoughts?

    Andy, if Rotax have approved it for use, then it's approved! That has got to be worth more than any valued opinion you get on here!

      You're quite right of course, John. thanks for your reply.

      Rotax seem to specify Aerosport Plus4 as being the oil they test, but AX7 is on an alternative 'untested but should be ok' list.

      Just curious if many folks were using it...
