Anyone use this stuff? I have used Amsoil for other applications and have been pleased with their products. This 100:1 oil claims to lubricate just as well as traditional oils with less/no smoking and better cleaning:

I welcome any input! The idea of my 2-cycle motors burning cleaner is very attractive. Thanks!

I have customers that use Amsoil products and are very happy with them, but I would still recommend mixing at the ratio recommend by the equipment manufacturer and would be hesitant to use it at a 100:1 ratio myself.

While it may help some with the odor and visible smoke, 2-cycle engines by their very nature are "dirty" engines.

It is the unburned fuel present in the exhaust of 2-cycle engines that pollute more so then the oil that is burned in the combustion process.

But I guess every little bit helps... :)
