    Just wondering if there is a low smoke oil for 2 stroke engines, specifically my 66cc. There has to be some formulation or brand that has reduced smoke. Thanks.

    I don't have any smoke on my MB's. Perhaps you are running too much oil. 4 oz/gallon is all you need if you run a quality oil such as Maxima 927.

    Well i am actually still putting together my first bike and havent started yet. But my buddy has the engine (zoom 66cc slant) and it smokes quite a bit. But it is in the break in phase with only 50 miles on it. Zoom says 8oz per gallon on the break in phase (16:1), so that probably contributes a lot.

    opti 2 oil is smokeless. you can run it at 100:1 right from the start. i use it in all my bikes and they all run great.

    here's a million page thread where everyone who uses it loves it, and everyone else is scared to try it: http://motorbicycling.com/f3/100-1-mix-9850.html
