Default Re: I am new and this is my first post.

Welcome to the forum. Glad you've decided to join us.
Your fuel mix is a bit on the oil rich side. By now you can safely move up, or down as you see fit to call it, to a 32:1 mix. Reducing the oil in your fuel will make for a better running engine. As George n Texas suggested you might want to explore some of the other oil options available. Personally I use the Opti-2 oil and run it at the recommended 100:1 mix. I've had very good luck with far. Others have had good results with some of the synthetics out there and run them at the recommended 50: to 80:1 mix. If you're shy about the low oil contents of these products then opt for a good grade of air cooled 2 cycle oil but don't run it higher than 32:1. I think you'll be pleased with the way your engine responds. Keep us posted.
