    Long ago, I road raced two-stroke Yahamas (TZs) and we all ran Castrol R bean oil. But everyone said that bean oil "denatured" the high test gas we ran, so you had to drain it out after every weekend. For a while, I just burned it in my truck, but later got a more smog-controlled truck, and could not burn it. The solution was to burn Klotz race gas premix, which had a 50-to-1 bean oil. The Klotz guys said it was homogenized in 40,000 gallon batches, and would not denature. You still had to drain it out of the bike gas tank into the shipping cans, but at least you could keep it for the next ride.

    I see that Klotz no longer sells pre-mix with bean oil, but VP does sell premix. Don't know if the VP is bean oil or no.

    Bean oil was used when I was a kid for glow-plug airplanes. Then later for hare scramble racers, and still later for road racers. Some dirt-track sprint cars smell like they run bean oil. Bean oil smells fast.

    I run my 2T fuel in 'em too, my leaf blower comes on the pipe nicely. I need to buy some bean oil for it, it's a wallyworld POS that won't die anyway. That smell might motivate me to go outside and start on the huge pile of leaves I got at the moment.

    I have to say I ran the R 20 Klotz and loved that smell....just the name Klotz made my subliminal mindset steer away as if I ate 100 egg yolks and 50 donuts...but i press forward..I will pursue the Klotz as for my Dominator jug just got emptied....time for a new smell.

    Haha now that's what I'm talkin' about!! World's fastest chainsaw.

    That bike's wild, too! That bike would be a non-starter (so to speak) in a race... :-/

    They didn't show it taking off...

    I can be kind of a dick sometimes so I'd probably go for the hot dog smell additive. That's steamed, not toasted.
