Like has been posted in this thread many times; if you don't want to use it, don't. But I would think it would be difficult to argue with the success rate of those who do.

I agree 100%

prime example of this was an old Craftsman chainsaw I had years ago, it said specifically on the saw to mix 8oz of non detergent 30w oil per gallon of Regular gasoline, that saw was a monster, belched smoke that would kill all the skeeters in three to four surrounding counties and needed to tank refilled about every 4-5 minutes of cutting...

I personally think the super high grade modern superior chemically engineered oils like Opti2 and maybe a few others work so well in small 2 smokers at such ratios like 80-1-100-1 becuse the oils drop from the fuel easier and cling to the engines internals under higher heat conditions better and on a molecular level it seems that they just produce a much better and strong film of lubricant.

Im no scientist so I may be over my head with some of what Ive said here, but all I know is that, I run Opti2 at 100-1 and all my engines run great, yes Ive had some failures with engines but non that I would attribute to the oil or amount I use, I run all my engines the same way and after several thousand miles of hard riding I have no dou ts about Opti2 being able to provide what my engines need for lubrication.

Silverbear, I also agree cometely with what you have said here also.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
