Default Re: Attn: guys that run 100 to 1

Apples and oranges here.

You need whatever amount of oil your car requires, whether it's 4 or 40 qts, for cooling not lubrication. Believe it or not most car's oil pickups are designed to not suck air and keep oil pressure with as little as one qt of oil in the pan.

Your analogy would be more correct in asking if people running their 2 cycle oil at 100:1 were also running their cars on synthetic and letting the oil changes go for 12,000 miles. My answer to that would be yes. My brother would be no, he goes 24k between oil changes and has done so for over 150k miles.
