anybody check miles per qt oil used with a 600 sdi?
In my opinion, the sdi's get such good fuel milage, that you shouldn't be looking for a certain RATIO to gas...........instead do the mileage thing..........100 miles to a quart is about equivilant to 40:1 so i would like to see at LEAST 1 quart of usage per 100 milesedlund said:anybody check miles per qt oil used with a 600 sdi?

ok. I will try and figure it out by gallons to qts added. Which brings up the next question. What ratio is the best to use? 40:1 or 50:1 useing full syn oil? Have you seen anything brp says that the ratio should be for the 600 sdi? I will tel my friend to tell his dealer about what you said to figure it by fuel used and oil added,and not use miles. thanks for input.06MXZXRenegade800 said:Why the heck would you guys measure it by miles, whats wrong with you?
You measure it against fuel used to get a ratio, a full tank of gas (40L) to a litre of oil is 40:1 (obviously)
In 100miles you could have burnt a full tank or half a tank so a quart per 100miles doesnt make much sense now does it?
If you burn almost 4 tanks of gas and your sucking the bottom of the oil resevoir your ratio is right around 40:1
Dude this is way way way to lean. Shes going to blow and blow soon if you dont richen up the pump setting. You keep running it like that and every complete revolution of the crank will be a victory!ams said:20 mpg imp.(16.65 us)
20mm oil setting/no free play in throttle
230 miles/litre oil semi BRP (218/quart)
I will take this with a big grain of salt! If you are running that firecracker at that lean of a condition and it hasnt nuked on you yet then you are the luckiest sum biotch in the world. Mine blew at 32/1. Exhaust bolts came loose and she melted.nbrenegade said:This from a trip yesterday....230kms(144miles)
550ml (just over 1/2liter) oil
Been running this ratio for over 5000miles (60:1).........
ams, When I first started riding and working on two strokes the recommended ratio from all the engine manufactures was 20/1. You were supposed to dump a quart of oil in every five gallons of gas. Have you ever rubbed 20/1 mix in your fingers, can't feel much oil. That ratio was recommended for years and as oil improved the ratio increased. I think 40/1 is too lean, but it reduces emissions and makes a good sales pitch. Maybe 45/1 with doo syn will make high miles ( in the 15,000 range) but I haven't seen one yet...But I have seen 15,000 with an average of 25/30 to 1..ams said:Before we put oil in one hole and gas in another,was the average mix not @50:1?
