Yeah mate thats my plan (ish), I've mixed up 5 L of 18-1 so I'm going to add 3.3 L of petrol and that should make it 30-1, I hope it goes soon :-( today I've cleaned out all the old fuel and drained the carb (again !) I read on here that the plug should be gapped to 28 thou which I now have and I've a great spark, I've also kicked it over loads now to clean out the last of the 18-1 fuel, Thursday is my day off and we'll see what happens with the new fuel !
