Just pondering gasohol issues as I am about to go out to the shop and make my carb (Mukuni 45) Harley run on E-95

What happens to 2 strokes when petrol is no longer available, and all we can buy is gasohol.

Thought as much, but one could always replace the tank with a LPG cylinder sort of like a TukTuk

Guess I won't be buying that NSR after all.

It's no bad thing that the 2 strokes slowly will dissapear, as also past-previous-future governments are/will making an effort to get rid of these stinkers. Compared to 12 years ago, there's not many left as of today; you can see the few remaining clearly by the smoke cloud trailing behind them......

Long live 2 smokes :wink:

I was out in the middle of nowhere in Rayong province on a CRM250 and was running on fumes when I found a garage that only had gasohol. I filled her up and she ran fine. Dunno about long term effects mind.

Crankcase seals are still lubricated by oil. 8)

Just do the carb and.......

Surgeon General: It's OK to smoke the opposition with 2-stroke power.

PROBABLY? Sorry don't buy it. When it quits I'll let you know. Until then.....
