i think the word is shims and that is to space the head from the block to lower compression and releaves alittle stress on the engine from higher performance that 30% gives

You don't want that much oil in your fuel. With the modern lubricants today you only need a maximum of 12% oil. Even that is a bit much. Most fuels today use between 9 to 12% oil. Anything above that will only hurt performance.

I personally run Odonnell 20% racing fuel in all of my engines.

I used that several years ago for a bit in my LST2. WAY too much oil in it.
Maybe ok for breaking in an engine but I wouldnt reccomend running it.

Because people buy it. They buy it because they see the high oil content and think it means their engine will last longer(very wrong btw).
