another 2 stoke question- why not run opti blend summer, it is cheaper and better?

I am not sure if it is actually better. But what about this study?
http://www.dieselplace.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=177728

I would like to add something for the injectors and possibly get the side benefit of quieter operation. It appears the opti blend has better lubricity and is considerably cheaper. But you do have to mail order it. What did everyone think of this study and the amount of 2 cycle oil used? Thanks

The 2 stroke stuff does quiet the injectors down a bunch. 1 oz per gallon seems to be the recommended amount.

Plus its readily available. Thats the big plus to 2 stroke oil.

i've been using 1 oz/gal supertech 2 stroke oil for over a year. It def makes the engine quieter. I did see about a 1.5 mpg jump too, but not everyone sees that.

I used the Opti summer blend, and even the winter blend last winter, in my E350. I can't really report noticing any differences in anything.
