A reader asks: I’ve got a Vespa 946 scooter that requires a 10W-40 oil. Apparently AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke Synthetic Scooter Oil is not imported into Canada. What is a good alternative for my scooter?
Our answer: We can offer a superb substitute for the Formula 4-Stroke Scooter Oil. AMSOIL Metric 10W-40 Synthetic Motorcycle Oil offers very similar properties to the dedicated Scooter Oil.
Metric 10W-40 has almost identical viscosity as the Formula 4-Stroke Oil (both are 10W-40). Both also meet the same industry specifications. The Metric Motorcycle Oil is suitable for air- or liquid-cooled 4-stroke engines. It is wet-clutch combatable. Therefore, it suitable for all motorcycle engine/transmission combinations requiring 10W-40 oil.
What Is the Difference Between AMSOIL Scooter Oil And Metric Motorcycle Oil?
The main difference between Metric 10W-40 and Formula 4-Stroke Synthetic Scooter Oil is the service life. AMSOIL suggests that the Scooter Oil be changed at the interval suggested by the owner’s manual. Meanwhile, the Metric 10W-40 has a service life of up to two times the suggested service interval or one year (whichever comes first). This implies that the Metric formula is more robust than the Scooter oil.
