Re: fuel/gas mix ratio questions
Lots of posts on this site concerning this topic.....
8oz of oil per gallon is way too much oil..... equals to a 16:1 ratio. 24:1 seems to be the more accepted ratio, or 5.33oz per gallon. Many use 32:1. I'm currently running 50:1 Echo synthetic oil in mine with absolutely no issues.
Higher amounts of oil actually decrease power because the oil takes the place of gasoline.
Good luck in your decision on how to proceed!
You're never lost until you run outa gas.
