Default Re: what type of 2 stroke oil?

There's much in the way of info on the various synthetics and the people who love them, but what is far more important than synthetic/non-synthetic is understanding what the proper mix ratio is for your engine.

With that said - you can safely ignore w/e "instructions" came with your motor and run your mix at the recommended ratio the manufacturer of your oil brand suggests. So - if it's a non-synth that's made for 32:1 and that's what you mix it at - it should be fine, it's really pretty much that simple.

Where people have been runnin' into problems is runnin' the "instruction's" insane 16:1 or w/e....

I will say I prefer synthetics TBH - the initial price is high, but I use far less of it *shrug*
