I used to get through 15-20 litres of oil a year. So yes.. more in oil than a 4 stroke uses. But then no oil filters or major servicing for 3 years.

I had to pay 500 for a service last year on my 4 stroke. That's 57 litres of XD100. I know what I would rather be spending the money on...

I think the whole point is 2 stroke v 4 stroke.

I am sure an Opti would give the e-tec a run for its money.
