Default OIL TO FUEL RATIO

Im have a Brison 50cc and running Amzoil synthetic 2.6 oz per gallon.. A friend of mine told me i should be using 4 oz per gallon for extra lubrication.. Is this too much oil per gallon??

50:1 isnt a bad ratio for a synthetic. if i was to use that oil i would be at 50:1 also.

Yes that is way too much, particularly for amsoil. What you are running is fine. You could even go down to 2 ounces per or even 1.6 if you really wanted to.
BTW, this only applies to amsoil synthetic. Other oils may not be suitable for such lean ratios.

What type of Amsoil? There are different synthetic 2 stroke oils. Dominator mixes at 50:1. Saber Pro mixes at 100:1

For more information, click on the link below. Hope this helps.

My Brison 3.2 gets 50:1 Redline syn. Just like the rest of my engines. I have had no troubles.

Edit... You beat me to it. I used to use dominator 50:1 but switched to belray h1r at 50:1. Alot less mess. Ran smoother too. This question has been asked 1000 times and you will get many opiinons on which to use. You will have to sort through the opinions and pull out what you are looking for in an oil. Guys use amsiol saber at 100:1 with no problems . I personaly would never run that low amount of oil. 50:1 all the way That's my opinion.

PD #1(me) has always said more oil = more power...I picked up 200 rpm 12 YEARS ago instantly when changing from 32-1 Pennzoil to 1 quart oil mixed with 4 quarts 87 octane gas...It has been dyno tested and comfirmed many times..If you're one of the people who won't or can't set your carb, don't even reply....
FWIW, I just worked on an engine that had always used Redline synthetic...Don't know what ratio, but the engine had NO trace of carbon ANYWHERE inside....
