Default Re: 100:1 Mix

I switched over today. I broke in using Maxima at 20:1 then switched to 28:1.

Today mixed up Opti-2 100:1 and tried it for the first time. Empty Tank. I noticed a difference immediately. Overall the engine was running much smoother, this was especially noticeable at higher rpms. Revving overall sounds less gritty, and seems to be cooler running overall.

I called the company to find a supplier in my area. When I told him that it was for a motorized bicycle china girl he said "you guys have been all over me today".

Another thing he said, which maybe important is that if you run opti at a ratio like 80:1 it actually runs hotter. So maybe if you are going to risk it with Opti-2, go straight to the 100:1. I decided that the risk was worth it. Its also feels good to be further reducing emissions.

Anybody try Opti-2 with the custom heads with higher compression?
