4 cups (1 quart) of synthetic 2 stroke oil in 2 gallons of
gas and your exhaust will puke oil like mad.
I run what appears to be 1 cup of Amsoil Dominator in 2
gallons of gas (will have to look on my RatioRite cup and
see the actual amount), 50:1 and it still pukes oil out the
exhaust. Amsoil Dominator is super slick. The motors just
don't need that much of a slippery oil. If ya got oil
coming out the exhaust and dripping all over the front of
your cylinder, you're running too much oil.

I would really question ANY recommendation of running air
cooled 2-strokes at 100 to 1 ratio. The 100 to 1 ratio came
about in the marine industry to appease the Feds (EPA)when
they realized outboards put oil into the water thru the
exhaust. Remember, an outboard engine is water cooled, not
air cooled, big difference.
If you want to run synthetic, fine, but I would stay kind
of close to 2 cups oil to a gallon.
Yea, maybe they SAY they will stand behind their
recommendation, but have a problem, "try to collect!"
I'd like to see you get that in writing from Amsoil.
For several years I have used Amsoil SABER professional 2-
stroke oil at 100-1 with 89 or 92 octane non ethel gas with
the red sta-bil fuel stablelizer.
I have had no problems at all in my 55st,my topper or
golf cart. I use the same mix in all my small engines,weed
I also use the outboard saber oil in my 80's outboard motor
I e-mailed amsoil to ask about using at 100-1 in the old
motorcycles and the replied that it would be fine and they
would stand behind it.
If anyone else wants to email amsoil with the same ? now,I
would like hear what they are told.
