Default What's the best way to actually put after run oil into the engine?

Do you put the drops into the gas tank, do you remove the glow plug and put it in the opening at the top, do you remove the air filter and put it in through that hole or something else entirely?

Thanks a lot.

I like the bottle like nova with a thin long spout, then just like 8&stuff said.

Some engines tell you not to inject it into the fuel nipple so I don't

i dont think regular motor oil would burn off very well. i make my ARO with a 50/50 mix of Marvel mystery oil, and automotive ATF fluid.

Monty Houston, Whom I trust very much , told me NOT to use Marvel's oil.He said it swells up seals and other soft materials . He told me to use 100% synthetic motor oil like Mobil 1. I may get this part wrong but I belive he told me to mix 30 weight with a 80 weight to come up with around a 50 weight or so. Monty, Chime in here if I screwed it up.

Truthfully I rarely use ARO. Only if I am storing the engine for an extended period of time. I do use odonnell fuel though, which leaves lots of oil in the engine as it is.
