We have imported modern 2 strokes Mariner/Tohatsu engines from USA, Panama, Japan and all their manuals stated 50:1 ratio, so for this brand, the geographical / environmental location is not an issue for going 100:1. For the moment, will stick with usual 50:1 untill there is a factory bulletin specifying so. Consult your owners manual for your 2 strokes engine brand before going 100:1 or repent forever for experimenting.

Happy Sibbing

Many yamaha's of the 1970's and 1980's had 100 to 1 printed on the side of the engines
just below the hoods in white letters.

To be honest i think 100 -1 is asking for a meltdown if running for long periods.

personaly i would stick to 50-1, and use a good quality 2stroke oil.
