Default Re: 100:1 Mix

what's the fascination at running 100 to 1? Why not 1000:1? If less is better, why not 10000:1

I get very little smoke running 32-40:1 using 20-25% castor blended with cheap 2 stroke oil. I'm happy with my power-tuned pipe tuned for hill climbing and not high rev's.

If 100 to 1 works for certain folks, I'm happy for them. BTW, solvents comprise 20-30 percent of a conventiol oil's volume....reduce the level of solvent and you have more oil per unit volume thus allowing less volume of oil to be used. Its possible that the solvent may cause smoke or affect performance.
