I'm looking for 2-stroke oil suitable for my old Simplex 3 1/2 hp.
The non- detergent oil that is recommended on this website seems impossible to find these days. They are all synthetic built for high revving lawnmowers, whipper snippers and outboards.
Where gan we get the good stuff in Australia (I'm in Brisbane).

I been using Penrite products for some time. I can highly recommend their service. They should have an agent in Brisbane.
I have used both the Shelsley Light and the Heritage LTM in four and two strokes.
Their website is Penrite Oils
