Has anyone heard of adding oil to the gas along with the normal injection in -15 degrees for proper lube at these temps..

I don't think this would be a problem, but I know it would hurt anything either. Make sure if you do mix it to mix it light....like 100:1

It does not hurt to add oil to your gas in cold weather. We do it all the time when the temp drops but normal only when it gets below –20. Just a little extra, like 2 oz per 5 gallons does the job. It is easier then changing your jets all the time. Sometimes when we go into our cabin it will be 10 or 20 above and overnight it can drop –20 or even –30 if the sky clears.

If you have a fuel injected engine I don't think it is recommended to add oil to the gas. It tends to screw up the injection system

Well that is not true on the new Cats, as for the first tank they tell you to run a 100:1 mix your first tank

You should add oil to all new snowmachines, it helps with the break in period.
