Default Re: Oil/gas mix - What is correct and does it very?

I run Opti2, it's great stuff but it isn't a 100% synthetic oil..... just way better than the other oils.

Peace, map

I do want to get some opti-2 soon and try that out. I suspect it will run better with high-quality synthetic because not only will it require less oil but it really does seem like synthetic causes far less carbon buildup. I scraped some of the carbon off my piston last week, and after a few rides there was already more carbon in its place!
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
