Default Re: Smokey: is it my mixture?

Yes, that's too much oil.
any stihl product is first rate. You don't need that much oil in the gas.

I have some little tiny bottles of mix oil... I think Champion brand? There is 2.56oz per bottle I think.... it is sold specifically for mixing into 1 gallon of gas.

So, without doing the math, you gotta be WAY thick!

Also, you got other probs...

if you got that much oil pukin out on your shoes and stuff, there's probs with your exhaust, gaskets, or whatever, that need attention.

probably are running way too rich.

I would advise you read through a whole bunch of the threads here on the forum.
There is SO MUCH great information within them!

My goal is cheap, reliable, personal transport, below the tax collector radar. Fun counts for a lot!
