2 stroke oil in petrol tank???

Question

So met a guy who tracks his lotus elise, has a 2zzge engine in it. I asked if he uses high octane and he said he uses vpower and adds 2 stroke oil to it think he said 60:1 ratio. I was confused but just nodded and carried on talking about handling and weight. Now im back home and wondering why is the plonker putting 2 stroke oil into a 4 stroke engines petrol tank?

I have a feeling it might not do any harm since engines burn oil all the time but only time i see people do that is with lawn mowers and chainsaws.

Any ideas?

Ok I’m not talking about the track here but dose he mean Redex ? I’ve been using that for years.

 

In the past when I’ve used it for the first time on cars that I’ve just bought and replaced ignition parts at the same time, I’ve regained some of the BHP that had been previously lost with the age of the car.

The BHP before and after on the dyno’s that I’ve seen in the past when I’ve done it has been so significant, that I’ve always recommend people doing that before they start modding.

Think it may help with cleaning and keeping parts lubed up I've read about adding 2 stroke but not tried that people even use diesel I've experimented with acetone, paraffin and white spirity type higher up the aromatic carbon chain type solvents in the past with varying success you've just not got to overdue it, from what I can remember that's all pretty much what's in redex anyway and prolly the detergent type additives in vpower petrol etc. I think atf mite be another one I've seen on good ol youtube

No not redex.

After reading up and watching some youtube vids it looks like adding 2 stroke oil to the petrol tank is very common for mazda rotary users like rx7 rx8 etc.
