    Hey gang, just wondering if the Opti Oil we all love or hate adheres to the same 2 stroke mixture ratios, you know the one thats always linked online?

    Gas Oil Mixture Ratio Calculator

    Im only wanting to mix up a gallon and I think Im gonna start of at say 75:1 for the first tank. Thinking about it now, Im pretty sure it does not conform to these standards or else youd be using the same volume of oil ( as conventional), and I know that not to be true.


    Thanks

    Seems to work out right, Cory. 75:1 calculates to about 1.6 oz per gal.
    Just a question.. why are you going to use Opit-2 if you're not going with the 100:1 recommended mix?

    That works out to be 3.2 tablespoons per gallon. Sound about right? Time to take the plunge. .wee.

    Why? When "Theres an App for that." Is every tablespoon in the state of Massachusetts stuck in a bowl of clam chowder or something?

    Well I guess that depends on what your definition of new is? Is one tank a new motor? Or is never been fired = a new motor?

    I started using the Opti-2 at the recommended 100:1 ratio right off the bat and I couldn't be happier with how it works. The carb is giving me a little issue now but not the oil. lol

    Well it didnt blow with the 75:1 so I guess next time I can go 100:1 then maybe 125:1 just to make people angry with me LOL
