Default Re: Oil/gas ratio for breaking in ?

24:1 for the first couple of gallons then 32:1 afterwards. That's if you're using regualar 2 stroke oil. Some synthetics can be run safely at 50:1 and Opti-2 at 100:1.

Whatever, disregard the kit instructions that tell you to run 16:1. That's too much oil and can foul the spark plug and clog the exhaust system.
This information is 'rule of thumb' and some members will have other recommendations. Nevertheless, you can't go wrong with the above ratios.
