Default Re: newb gas ratio question

Is the engine broken in yet? What kind of oil are you mixing? 32:1 is a slight bit lean on oil but if the oil is high quality you'll be good. Some of the better synthetics can be mixed at 50:1 and even leaner. 100:1 is recommended by a couple of oil manufactures but if I were you I'd wait until you're sure the engine is broken in and runnng well before trying them. It usually takes a couple of gallons to consider youre engine to be broken in. Do you know how much running tme it has? Hope this helps a little and there'll be more answers coming. Stay tuned.
