Re: 100:1 Mix
What do you mean by "mixed results"? Everyone who runs Opti-2 is satisfied with the performance. The only negative comments come from people who have never tried it. That's hardly a comparison. As for your theory about inferior metals in our engines verses that used for lawn equipment/industrial engines etc. I would be very surprised if the bike engines are constructed from anything different than that used for other purposes. China mass produces everything and many products are made in the same factories then shipped out under different brand names. A decal doesn't change the quality of the product. I'm not saying the quality of the HT is top-notch, but I'd need to see some proof that they are any worse than other small engines produced by the Chinese.
