rog, u r 4 stroking now because it is running too rich!
...crazy, I know!

with less mix oil, there is too much fuel!
...the mix oil is not considered to be part of the fuel component...

so now you get to go through the process of leaning it out a bit! :-)

...That taco Stihl sure does bring up a number of thoughts...
It gets rid of the oil sump, which is probably a good idea in a hand tool ... and it's probably better than splash lubrication???

..lots to think about...
It would be nice to see some -open source- insight into the Stihl engineers having discussion on that one!

Like... would giving up one of the power strokes be SO beneficial for a clean burn to make it worth while??? and why not a valved two smoke???

I dunno...

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