Hi!,Steve's Moped!I've been told by many that
synthetic oils don't lubricate the bottom end well
enough.I use to use 50:1 synthetic in a 6.6 h.p.
Johnson boat motor and never had any trouble or
smoke.Is there a reason for this big jump to
100:1,because it looks to me like 50:1 wouldn't hurt
anything and might be a protection.By the way,I've
heard good things about AMSOIL from one of my friends
at work!I realize you're the experts and I'm not
averse to learning something new.THANKS for any reply.

The Mixture for you 1977 Motobecane 50v in the
owners manual and on a chrome
sticker just below your gas tank cap will state 4
ounces of two cycle oil to
be mixed to gallon of gas. The decal below the gas
cap usually gets worn out
from gas being spilled on it. Motobecane initially
back in the 1970's had a
mixture of 2.6 ounces of two cycle oil per gallon
but were experiencing too
many top end engine problems. They have since
recommended 4 ounces per
gallon. This mixture is a little on the rich side.
You can go with 3.2 ounces
per gallon if you are experiencing excessive
fowling / carbonization of the
spark plug. In hot weather if you feel your moped
seems to run hotter and
slow down you may want to go back to the 4 ounces
per gallon. We run
everything in our shop and have thousands of our
customers mopeds, gopeds,
scooters, weedwackers, chainsaws and all 2 cycle
engines running AMS-oil
100:1 synthetic 2 cycle oil. This oil is used by
many of the top racers, is
almost smokeless and the engines stay clean. We
have had tremendous results
with it for over 20 years. Just 8 ounces of AMS oil
100:1 makes 6 gallons of
gas for less than 4 dollars. We have this oil in
both manual mix and injector
formulas for any 2 cycle application. We also have
all Motobecane parts in
stock. If further information is needed contact;
