I'm not in a rush to get the engine broken in, but I do have too much time on my hands since I only work about 2 hours a day.
I know these china engines are most likely made from recycled cans and don't have the tolerances of a modern engine so extra care is needed, which is why I'm going for the high grade oil.
I'll start by letting it run at idle for 5 minutes while keeping a close feel and ear for too much heat, cool down and build up from there.
From what I've heard opti-2 is a very low viscosity oil that is "thick as honey in a fridge" and has been designed to run at 100:1 or 1.28oz per gallon, but the single gallon packets are 1.8oz or 71:1.
