I'm using a synthetic 2-stroke oil, and even at 40:1 the fuel has a definate blue tint to it.

That said, I fill my tank twice a week. When I finish the 'weekend maintenance', and usually when I get home on Wednesday evening or so. I have run it out of gas once, wasn't fun getting the rest of the way home on manual power. While I was close to home, it was 2 blocks of uphill distance I had to deal with.


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
