Default Re: 100:1 Mix

The whole thing about the 100:1 mix is that the oil is thicker to begin with so it's almost like comparing gear oil to 10w30... 1 has more than enough substance to support that ratio where the other you could only safely run at 25:1 etc... This is very exagerated by the way, but most of you will get the idea... Mixing Opti2 or Amsoil at 20:1 or 25:1 can definitely be done, but you're just wasting it by doing so. Mixing your basic run of the mills 2 cycle oil or motor oil at 100:1, or even 50:1 for that matter and you're definitely asking for trouble. The oil needs to be formulated to run at these ratios but that doesn't mean you can add more oil to your mix, it mainly means not to try to use less oil in the mix...
