Really what are the benefits or running your engine on such little amount of oil?

Years ago we had a customer with a 440 liquid arctic cat that was continuously in our shop. We would rebuild it, within a month or two it was blown up, He always complained of the jetting and at tear down time the engine usually had signs or pre-ignition and or detonation.

We could never figure it out. On a fresh engine (Amsoil 40:1) it ran mint, plugs checked perfect, water temps good.
With in a month it was blown up.
We found out later he had been using an oil (not amsoil) at 100:1

My opinion is just because an engine can run with an oil ratio mixed at 100:1 does not mean that it's best for it. Sure at synthetic at 100:1 may provide the same lubrication as a cheapy-do oil at 50:1 and not void a warranty but that good synthetic mixed at 50:1 will provide twice the lubrication.
Run the heaviest oil ratio you can and not foul plug continuously... and for Gods sake re-jet for the different ratios.
This amplifies my point on the oil being a octane booster. Although the oil can lubricate at 100 to 1, the compression ratio of the engine and the jetting is dependent on a much lower ratio, leading to elevated temps, detonation and blown up engines.

It can lubricate, but not well. Plus you lose power.

So you lose HP, Your engine is much less reliable, You still pay the same price.

Gee, I think I will start mixing 100:1 TODAY! :

Thought I would bump this with the current discussions going on about oils and mixtures.

klotz-40:1-pump fuel-
klotz is great oil-it burns clean,and removes carbon build up-
possibly 32:1 with race fuel- race gas burns cleaner ,and better,always check the plug to make sure your not running too lean
