85-90:1 with a 100:1 synthetic or 40:1 w/a 50:1 synthetic is about as much as I'd push it and even then only during break in and/or you notice excessive heat. Something crazed like 32:1 with a 100 or even 50:1 synthetic is jus' beggin' for goo gummin' up the works
Followin' the (oil) manufacturer's recommendation is yer best bet and remember - yer spark plug tells no lies
With that said, would you run a 100:1 oil in 115 degree summer heat. Im curious if the lesser amount of oil will run the engine too hot in the summer heat here. Thanks guys.
