    I tried to search it before hand and came up with nothing so that why I'm asking. What is the best mix for a new motor on a 16:1 ratio? Also would premium gas make any difference because I'll put my money out for whatever's the best.

    Premium gas will get you nothing unless you have a modified high compression motor.

    So when you say amsoil I'll need 5w-40? Is this my proper oil number and where can I get oil because my shoprite has some if I only have to really worry about the number?

    No don't use regular motor oil. Use 2-stroke engine oil. Amsoil Dominator. Mixed 32:1.

    Pablo's right, but there are a few different flavors of Amsoil. I use a 32:1 mix with Amsoil's 50:1 'HP Injector' 2 cycle oil (my engine is nicely broken in now tho).

    All the "weight" oils are just for cars (like 5"w" 30), or any 4stroke's crankcase - not what you want ;)

    When I break in a new engine, I use 2 gallons mixed @ 24:1, Then after that I switch to 32:1
    I use Valvoline 2-cycle oil... It'$ cheap & works pretty good.

    I use the Castor 927 full synthetic with the tan label, i run 6.5 ounces to 1 gallon of 91 for the first 300 miles, this 2 smoker oil smells good and runs really smooth with very litttle engine noise. After the break in i run 5 to 6 ounces, there is a shop in my town that is selling some type avionic 2 stroke oil and claims you only need 1-2 ounces of oil to the gal. Im going to go check this stuff out but am kinda weary if it will shorten engine life running so little oil.usflg

    so i went to this shop and it turns out thry use amsoil 100:1, the guy said he runs 2 ounces per gallon, and has even ran this stuff through an old motor and when they inspected the piston and head that it was actually cleaner, he says it reduces engine noise as well, im going to try it out, if anyone else uses the amsoil, what is your recomended ratio and how is it working for you???

    Amsoil Saber can be run 100:1 in most engines.

    In the China engines, I think Amsoil Dominator 32:1 is better.
