Default Re: A question about additives

My first question would be why do you think you need this additive? If you're running a 16:1 fuel/oil ratio then you will see some build-up on the piston and rings. Drop that ratio down and you shouldn't see so much carbon.

I've used Lucas products in my cars, in particular their fuel injector/system cleaner and it is a good product. Nevertheless I don't see any real advantage to using it in a little carbureted 2 stroke. Certainly the claims of "more power/MPG" sound impressive but I doubt you're going to notice any difference. In addition the product you pictured is formulated to clean injectors, not carbon build up inside the engine.

However, if you try it and it seems to work for you, let us know. We all learn something every day.
