Aye, but then you're the "me" of the Opti fraternity, Mr. Cabin Rib, nice 'n' easy on the stick. On the other hand there's Chris, the Martini of the Etec world, who runs at 70:1 on XD100, but then he's a maniac too.

Oil consumption seems to be closely related to how close you thrash your 2 stroke engines to the edge

I'm sure it can be all be slapped in a seperate thread by those 'in power' ?

Sounds like your current opti is a duff one. I have been told mine had a complete new wiring loom after a year or two as it just kept cutting out.

I'd get another over an etec simply due to the 'known quantity' of them and the local dealer being very good. (I've also got a 4st Yam that never goes near the Yam dealer.....so swings and roundabouts and all that.)
