Me too!!! Been using it for 3 years now, and no problems with my 2 cycle equipment. In fact, when I put amsoil in my older 2 cycle equipment, it ran better. Plus the main fact is no more cleaning plugs and ports and only one mix can needed now....Originally posted by Richard Martin
I use Amsoil at 80:1 (1 bottle to 5 gals of gas) for years now and couldn't be happier. No fuss, no muss.
Yes it is true. Since gasoline is much more volatile it burns at much lower compression ratios than the 2 stroke oil that is mixed in it. The 2 stroke oil is only partially being burned because of the heat that is generated by the combustion process. The 2 stroke oil does nothing to aid in the combustion process. Since it is taking up "space" in the fuel that would otherwise be taken by gasoline you are, in effect, reducing the amount of gas available and thereby leaning out the mixture and as we all know when you lean a mixture it gets hot.Originally posted by MR.

I cant say this to be a fact but I have heard or read that the more oil you use the hotter your equipment will run.
I would like to know if this is true.
