I was like everyone else, broke the first few in at 20:1. Thought that sounded awfully rich but figured it must have something to do with these Chinese engines. When I noticed they always dripped oil after each ride I decided that was way to rich. Since then I have gone to 50:1 then when I found out about the Opti-2 oil, made right there in Blain Washington, I switched to the recommended 100:1 mix. My bikes have never run better.
I will be the first one to tell you guys if I have any trouble. I know of four of us here in my area running the 100:1.
