Ash as it pertains to two cycle lubricants refers to mettalic ash residue that results from the open cup sulfated ash test. It has nothing to do with combustion by products of base oil.
The links posted really don't talk about anything remotely close to what dear old Bwildered is auggesting.

Where is your reference material to back up your ideas to dispute engineering fact?

You need to go back a page or two, there is a picture of the page which is engineering fact.
That page had nothing to do with anything remotely close to the combustion process of a two cycle.

Sorry but you have no idea what you're talking about, so much so, you don't even realize how far out in left field you even are.

Of course I don't know what I'm talking about & nobody here does either, but my dad was an engineer & he did know! I've just taken a pic from one of his books, you dyed in the wool excessive oil burners just don't want to accept the principle of the combustion process when oil is present in the cylinder, why do think 4 stroke engine piston, rings & cylinders last around 10 times longer than 2t engines even with lower spec materials. It all comes down to top end abrasion from carbon

Except back in the day on the play ground Bwildered would have been the kid wearing the hockey helmet and riding the short bus
So now your a big man now trying to somehow associate the intellectually disadvantaged in a debate, what an hero! Were you known as biff the bully at school or his not so bold Internet apprentice?
And all because you can't backup anything with any independent facts!

Because 4 cycle engines don't have ports in the cylinder. Than add heat, rpm's, less oil, higher output, the list goes on. Sorry but you're clearly out of your depth.

I know I'm new here but someone needs to explain to me why they feel it's necessary to run a richer oil mix than the factory recommends. As memory serves me I've used and traded 2 394s, 2 371s a 372, 1 385, 1 2186, and 2 288s. All have cut over a million bft each. When traded they all had 150psi or better compression and all were run at 50-1 with Husky mix. Any of the saws I used before them I ran 40-1 with Stihl mix. What am I missing?

So I suppose the real important question is, what is the ideal mix of fryer oil for donuts? You've got the lard or nothing purists, the health nuts who want maybe 33% peanut oil and 66% canola oil, then others who are like bacon grease, 4 times that amount lard, and the balance canola, crisco, or whatever you got hanging around.

And more interestingly, how would you know if your bar and chain oil reservoir is leaking into your crankcase from a bad gasket?

As I have said that I know nothing other that the facts & proven principals, show us how you're not out of your depth with some references to what you claim.

What am I claiming?? Nothing you've said had made any sense whatsoever. Facts? principals? well alright, have a good one. If you'd like to do your own research on two cycle theory feel free to do so.
