    Ok I see a lot of really old threads of people running opti 2 at 100:1 mix. Is anyone still running this with over 2,000+ miles on there china girl? My new motor is almost broke in running the cheap walmart 8oz bottles so I am getting ready to switch from my breakin mix soon....

    Even though it is synthetic it is best not to mix too lean. I personally use 30:1 with synthetic. I like engines to last long.

    I've used Opti-2 at 100:1 with no problems - even in 100 + degrees this past summer for several hours. Each person is going to have to choose their comfort level when choosing a fuel to oil ratio. I run Opti-2 in all my 2 strokes at 100:1. Not a single problem.

    :whistling: letting your engine just idle for several hours?

    Riding in 100+ degree temperature. Idling at that temperature and that long will definitely do harm to the engine, no matter what the fuel to oil ratio or type of oil.
