Default RE: Ritch's Brew Bad Experience

We get a measurable improvement in performance by running 12% oil -- but remember that not all oil is created equal.

I suspect that part of the reason we see such an improvement is that we're running a higher quality oil that not only provides excellent protection at these low ratios but also reduces friction as well.

You only have to work out how fast the bits inside an engine are sliding back and forth to realise how much difference the viscosity and lubricity of an oil can make to the amount of power it puts out.
