    Just wondering what type of oil I should run in my H22a, synthetic or regular. Also, I know overseas has high octane fuels, so should I run 93 in my h22a or can I get away with regular?

    You Should run 91 or 93 because of your 10+ compression, Do a search on oil, its pretty much drivers opinion. I run 93 with Mobil 1 synthetic.

    id use 91 or 93 but you could get away with the lower octane fuels....as for oil, mobil 1 always works but depending on what you are using your motor for, that might not be the best for you...

    My ex GF put in 87 octane gasoline into my car ONE time. The motor won't blow up, but I had gas ping until I refueled with 92. I would run at least midgrade, and that's pushing it. Stick to premium fuel.

    Oil, well that's controversial. Pick either dino oil or synthetic and stick to it. Just change it often and you'll be fine.
