Re: 100:1 Mix
"they basically run wide open 8hrs a day tho the carbon holds the valves open."
2 stroke engines don't have valves. Are you sure that's your problem?
This thread is about using an oil mixed @ 100:1 in 2 stroke engines.
I'm going to sum up this thread by saying this: Try it. If you don't like it use what you want. If you've never tried it you can't have an opinion. If you've tried it and found it everything it is advertised as being, good for you. Join the club. If you've never tried it and are curious, try it and decide for yourself.
This senseless bickering over if it works or not is fruitless and silly. Everyone must decide for themselves if an oil made to run at 100:1 is right for them. Most of those who have tried it have found it is all it is cracked up to be. Those who have negative opinions are usually those who have never tried it and are relying on old, well established rules of 2 stroke lubrication requirements. To them I say, use what works for you and that you're comfortable with. No one is forcing Opti-2 or any other brand of oil on you. Just don't tell those who have used and are satisfied with it that they are wrong.
