Been a small engine mechanic at a dealer for years. We carry the opti line oils. I had taken apart a motor that only had ever run on opti sae 30 since new. The inside of the engine and cylider bore looked brand new. When i use the 2 cycle mix there is no smoke or smell. The customers love the one pouch mix. This stuff is canadian approved!!!!
Last year I purchased a small Smoker craft fishing boat that had a 1968 Evenrude electric start engine. It was in very bad condition and was a mess. I could not keep I running. I dumped the gas ,put in fresh gas & Opti-2 and believe it or not it started right up and after 20 min. of running it was hardly smoking. I then took it fishing & it ran so smooth with no oily water that even the other boaters were impressed. My next crabbing trip I ran out of gas & had to be towed back to the marina to get gas & oil (yes 2 strokes do use more gas). They only had Chevron so that's what I used. It at once started smoking & leaving a oil slick on the water. When I got home I again dumped the gas & put in Optic-2 with no problems since. I now also use Optic-2 in chainsaws & weed eater. WHAT A GREAT PRODUCT !

I used nothing but Opti-2 for years but ran out and trouble finding some more. So I tried to use traditional 2-cyle mix oils and had nothing but trouble. Went online and bought a large carton of Opti-2 squeeze packs and now I'm trouble-free again with my 2-cycle lawn tools.
A heck of a lot less smoke now too!!!

TRUELY I have not the words to describe my satisfaction of your product other than to share my professional experience with you and all who read this testimonial. I am an avid tree feller owning 2 professional high performance chain saws, Husquvarna and Dolmar. Since the addition of ethanol in our fuels my Husky has suffered fuel pump issues causing lean conditions and in return cylinder scuffing with piston burning, which lead to top end rebuilds. MOST ANNOYING. Fortunately I was able to avoid another rebuild in stopping the saw when symptoms expressed themselves. I had to replace the fuel pump again, at the same time, also removed muffler to inspect exhaust port for damage. There was some scuffing and minor piston burn. This is where you came into play OPTI-2. I had found some non ethanol fuel and mixed it with your oil and some quality octane booster. Need I say GADZOOKS! Due to the lower mix ratio and the the engineering of your product my saw has become a real blazer. After running just one tank full of fuel the performance was astonishing. The saw's idle became very stable and throttle response was right on Q. I even noticed the exhaust fumes no longer burned my eyes and gagged me when cutting in confined spaces. One more thing to mention, on next fill up I had forgotten to set the decompression valve when starting the saw, it nearly took my fist apart. You state that it would restore compression and it did just that. The saw now runs as the day it was purchased if not better. Thank you Interlube for a product that does what you claim it will do. You have a lifetime customer with me. Can not wait to use it in my high performance outboard. BIG 2 THUMBS UP.

My father has owned a small engine repair shop for 30 years. Since every 2-cycle engine required a slightly different oil:gas ratio, he sought a product that would work in any 2-cycle engine. After all, it's not practical to have 30 cans of mixture sitting around! That's when he started using the Optimol products (for 4-cycle engines, too). The big companies threatened him and stated they would void his customer's warranties if he didn't use their brand of 2-cycle oil. With the Optimol warranty in hand, he took the risk and hasn't used another product since. Moreover, he's never had a warranty claim against Optimol. I have a 21-year-old Lawn-Boy mower (2-cycle) and a 10-year-old STIHL trimmer. Both purr like kittens. NEVER use anything but Optimol products, maintain your equipment, and you will be very happy!

Simply the best. Won't even bother trying the competition. My father and i have been using opti-2 since the early 80's, racing motocross/harecrambles just about every single weekend. Zero motor issues over the years at 80:1. We use the same mix in our weedeater and chainsaw. works perfect and no second mix for different applications.
I also like how Opti is not sold at big box stores, support local business!

I beat the tar out of my KTM 250 E/XC, from brand new using only Opti-2 at 100:1, and Opti 4 10w30 in the transmission and clutch. The top end lasted 12 years! It was also a much faster bike than most, even a lot of bikes that had larger motors. Amazing product.

i have used optimol for 25 years nothing better out there
Just a note to tell you how much I think of your products. Back in 1983 my next door neighbor was a chainsaw dealer for NE Kansas and Missouri. He sold me a Husqvarna chainsaw and told me to only run Optimal in it, which he had just started selling. The saw is still going strong cutting 5 to 10 cords of hardwood a year and the only problem I’ve had is an oil pump and a new spark plug every other year. The engine still starts on 2nd or 3rd pull and still cuts down big oaks with no problem. I use it in all my 2 cycle engines and have never had any engine problems. The only problem is I think the saw is going to out last me. I would stand by this product over all the others.

Praise the Lord! I want to rate it better than excellent. We are a commercial landscape company and run 2 and 4 stroke equipment all day. We would keep regular gas and mixed gas on the truck for the different motors. About twice a year, or more, someone would mess up and put straight gas in the 2 stroke and seize the engine. Now there is one tank of gas with the Opti 2 and it goes in all our equipment, 2 and 4 stroke. No more mistakes and all the engine wear and tear has been enormously reduced! Amen.
