I’ve been researching fuels for my Rampage XT and came across VP small engine 2 cycle 40:1 premixed fuel, and was concerned reading about fuel ratio for running 25:1 32:1 don’t run 50:1 and was wondering would this be safe being its designed for 2 cycle engines???D32C8FEC-A344-4C8E-BC12-682BD3D428BC.jpeg

These engines are designed to run lots of oil I would not have a problem running the vp but I would do the math and add the appropriate amount of oil to get 20 to 1.

I run 93 octane pump gas in mine with yamalube 2cycle oil. It is one of the better oils out there and is reasonably cheap comparatively to other options.

Not enough oil will cost you a motor real quick.
Just use pump gas and a dirt bike oil at 25 or 30:1.
High octane is of no benefit in 2 strokes as it changes the timing of firing.
