I did that for my 2 stroke quad... you are so right. Plus you can lean out the mix even more. In that case ams was much cheaper than trying to stick with Yamaha stuff.

I ended up ordering Amsoil Today. I liked what I have been reading about it on several different forums and sites. I have Mobil 1 in it now.

I use mobil 1 in the bonnie, it works fine, i personally wouldnt use amsoil in my car but i do use amsoil in my snowmobiles at the cottage a heck of alot more efficient for that type of machine that your not using everyday, cheaper to run using that so to say.
