That would explain the gradual improvement in the performance of your engines output. The E85 Ethanol is not suited for use with the Opti2 oil. I read this info I do not have first hand knowledge of this.

Sorry Glen, but I pulled the muffler apart and it was clean. Exhaust port too. This was before I started running the old oil mix.
