Newer to karting. We have a kt100 engine racing in a jr super can division.
We’ve always mixed 16oz of caster or synthetic oil with 1 gallon of gas. This is equal to 2 bottles for every 4 gallons.
Another team mentioned that they run 2 bottles for every 5 gallons. Obviously less oil.
Is it recommended to run less oil in the gas? From what I read 16 to 1 seems to be the standard mix. Is there an advantage with less oil or would I be dancing with the devil and could damage the motor?
Also, if anyone knows these KT100 motor what octane is best?
Thanks for any replies.
