premix without a Sohn Adapter is bad ? Any opinions on this , I recently bought a Sohn Adapter but have been using premix for quiet a while now , I donít track or race my car either just daily driver

Why would it be bad? The Rotary is designed to inject oil to lubricate seals. You added the Sohn adapter to inject clean oil instead of dirty engine oil.

Adding a bit extra Lube via premix to the FUEL being sprayed into the combustion chamber will only benefit in providing even more lubrication. I see no negative side effect, if the proper oil is used that will burn off clean.

I premixed for over 100K miles now on the original engine. No Sohn adapter, 6 oz Idemitsu per fillup.
​​​​​​​No problem I'm aware of.

I was on the same page as you Tamas , like mentioned previosly I did get the Sohn Kit this week , did my oil change and likewise itís one of the mods you buy that canít feel the difference but itís healthier to the engine, I did however changed my premix from a custom mix for years I used and now using Idemitsu Premix price difference to the custom premix I had to outsource at auto parts vs purchasing on ebay wasnít no price difference at all nearly the same by pennies lol 😂
