Default Re: Why do 2 stroke motors run different ratio's of oil in the fuel mix

So, for the record, run whatever you are comfortable running, and live with the concequences.
That pretty much sums up the situation and is best advice of all.

Personally I think 40:1 is fine and generates almost no smoke. 16:1 and 20:1 guys really bug me though because they leave those black areas in my driveway. Grrrr.... dam chinese instructions!
