Default Re: Smokey: is it my mixture?

I would break in with a mix of 18:1 or 20:1. That would be approximately 6 to 7oz oil per gallon of gas. I would run that a couple hundred miles then run a standard mix of 32:1 which is 4oz oil per gallon of gas.

Here is a link to a mix calculator where you can enter your amount of gas and desired mix and it will tell you how much oil to add...

Also, make sure you turn off your fuel valve when the motor is not running. Sometimes if left on fuel will seep into the motor and it eventually loads up in places like the crankcase and muffler....
