    Has anyone tried Optimol fuel additive? You use it instead of oil. Add 1oz per gallon of gas (1:64...right?). Friends I know use it in their 2-cycle motored chainsaws and such and swear by it.
    I'm thinking it would allow more fuel for a bigger bang
    Any opinions?

    1 gallon = 128 fluid ounces

    Unfortunately it doesn't work like that.

    Some oils can be mixed 100:1, but studies show better power at much higher oil ratio in the premix. Use a good oil. Mix it 32:1. Set your jet correctly. If that is too oily, try 40:1 or 50:1.

    which studies?

    if this were the case we would premix everything....

    oil doesnt burn, and yes..its true. less oil means more fuel.

    then you need to retune the carby to compensate.

    personally though, ive never heard of this stuff, so no comment.

    but id be wary of anything mixed that lean in a 2 stroke... ive only ever seen one recomend 100:1...

    but hey! what sort of guarantee do they provide? :) could be good stuff after all...


    99% of oils flaunt their "easy mix" properties... a special additive :)

    yes, very special. kerosene. which is an abrasive. used for machining of aluminum...

    NOT FOR USE IN AIRCRAFT ENGINES...ever seen that warning on a bottle? some carry it. cus of the "additive"

    in the air, your life depends on your oil being pure... very clean and very very hard to mix. also very very good :)

    iunno. ill give your optimol a go if i see it around :)

    oil doesn't burn? that's a new one on me.
    how the heck did they burn the oil that was on top of the water in the gulf of mexico after the oil spill?
    must have been done with cgi or something.

    If a quart is 32 ounces, how much are 4 of them to make a gallon?
    128 to one seems a bit lean.

    ok, fine oil burns.

    technically petrol is oil.

    axle grease will burn given enough heat.

    even moth balls burn...

    theyre all petroleums.

    what i meant is that the oil isnt INTENDED to burn in the cylinder.... blue smoke is oil that isnt burnt...
