Why use a castor based oil in a low heat engine? In terms of oil technology the castor/synthetic oils are about 5 years out of date, and a full synthetic pre-mix only oil, will do a better job in any application other than alcohol fuel burning bikes, which require a castor based oil. If you have a play bike, try using full synthetic pre-mix only oil at 60-80:1 mix (depending on application), and I think you will be very surprised at how much better it runs.
