The False Neutral Podcast #101 – More Two Stroke Love

This month there’s a lot going on in our workshops. Pete’s doing his usual hacking, and Garrett is doing his usual professional-level restoration work. Along the way, our discussion leads to all three of us fawning over how great two-strokes sound. Again. This episode even incorporates an audio clip.

  1. Two-stroke engines are noisy, but they are also much more fuel-efficient than four-strokes. If you replaced all cars on U.S. roads with two-stroke engines, you could save about 35 million gallons of gasoline a year, enough to power more than 250,000 homes. I write economic reviews on the service for students, and so I have to know a lot of these kinds of facts. But a real speed enthusiast doesn’t buy a motorcycle with a two-stroke engine because of the economy, does he? It’s because of the sound, which is mesmerizing.
