I run 32:1 with fuel containing 6% oxygen and 5 grams of lead per gallon. Results in a very fast long living air cooled big bore.
I like the idea of a full-synth oil. The claim is no smoke and no carbon build-up, along with better lubrication, etc. All sounds good, if it is really true. Experiences anyone? Reality check?
Caveat: In my 4-stroke motors I see NO reason to run synthetic oil, despite any claims by the synth-oil company. I use mineral oil ONLY in the motors and drive-trains. In my old BMW's I believe (as do many others) that synthetics are HARMFUL.
Now, back to 2-strokes.
