Thanks Dave, but I’m good with what I got. I may try some other ester synthetics at some point, those are significantly better than the normal fridge stuff.

I only run Enya 4-strokes. I limit them to 10% nitro but usually use 5% nitro, and 20% castor. Has served me well since I delved into 4-strokes. I don’t buy OS or Saito.
