But now I think I'll try the amsoil at 100 to 1, first going with about 75 to 1 to see if performance improves. Then move leaner as I go and see what happens. I'll give the Opti-2 a try if I can find it around here. I wonder which is the better buy, the Amsoil or the Opti-2. At a 100 to 1 it makes these synthetics pretty reasonable in price and if the performance is enough better I wouldn't much care if it was more expensive by quite a bit. Thanks for the thread...

Silverbear, Good post. I have also used the Amsoil Sabre. I have been using it at 50:1 for the break in lately, then switching to the Opti-2 at 100:1. If they both seem to work out about the same in the long run at 100:1, the Amsoil would probably be a better deal as far as cost. The Opti-2 is a little pricey, almost twice what I pay for the Amsoil. It is still a small price to pay if it ends up working as good as they say. So far so good.
