    Pre mix oil mixtures?

    Break in I ran 25/1 break in oil
    Running now 50/1 Conventional 2 stroke marine oil

    I have read people running 40/1 but I work @ a Amsoil dealer and he claims he has heard of people running 100/1 Synthetic Amsoil - I don't want to go that extreme but I would like to get some better fuel mileage - does anyone run higher the 50/1 ratio in their 2 stroke?

    I need better fuel mileage or to build a tow-able sled for my ski....

    I would think 50:1 with a good quality oil in a mostly stock machine would be fine. Modern 2 stroke oils are very good these days. A lot of guys run 40:1 to feel safe. I run the Amsoil 100:1 in my weed whacker and leaf blower and it works good for that. But that particular oil is made to be run at 100:1

    I have recently used Penzoil Hull Synthetic at 16 oz to 6 gal of fuel. That works out to 48 to one. The local Walmart normally has it.

    What 'Ski do you have? I know several people that are running the Amsoil at 80:1 in Yamaha engines. Most of these types of engines use 50:1 at full throttle, leaner at lower speeds. Why not just use the oil injection?

    97 Kawasaki 900 ZXi - When I bought it, she was all in pieces but it had a SBT rebuild and a hull in great shape - didn't know what worked or didn't so I put a block off kit in.

    I don't run WOT much, mostly just cruise around the intercoastal so I was thinking about 70 to one... but I don't really want to be a test dummie on this.
