Default Re: Amsoil ratio question

If you putz around at less than 20mph then 50:1 is perfectly fine and if you get that optima stuff, than 100:1 is ok too (optima has less solvent in its blend so you end up getting same amount of oil as 50:1)

If you ride hard, ride in hot weather, ride fast, or your throttle is like mine, at WOT 99% of the time, then 32:1 is preferred and you should seriously consider using a castor blended oil too. Right now I'm running 2 oz degummed 1st press castor oil blended with cheap walfart 2 stroke oil for a ratio of 32:1 in an engine that has gotten so much abuse over the years that I'm surprised it still runs and runs like new.
