    Ran the motul 710 this morning. First off, it is a slight green color which is somewhat noticeable in the tank. I really don't worry about the color because the only cans on the truck is mixed. All the mowers are filled up at the gas station, and where we live there is always a gas station a free minutes away. The smell is awesome. Kind of a sweet smell. The engine seems smoother at full throttle. I didn't notice any smoke what's so ever. But the equipment hardly ever smokes with the opti-2 also. The temp this morning was 35 degrees and the engine fired up on the second pull. I ran it in a 1 year old redmax ebz7500 blower. I mixed the oil with fresh 93 octane that has up to 10% ethonol in it. I'll keep running it and see how I like it. But so far so good. I'll keep y'all posted.

    710 is a great oil, but it's mostly made for oil injected engines, and is the reason it's so thin. Contrary to what some uninformed people have said in this thread, Motul 800 is the better choice. Motul 800 is used in VP's canned fuel mix, TruFuel also uses 800 in their two cycle fuels.

    Stating Motul 800 will cause issues of any type is simply false.
