Re: Gas and Oil Ratio Question and Disscussion
There is a lot of information available here about 2 cycle oil mix. You're going to get a lot of discussion regarding what is right and what is wrong.
It has been determined by many experienced builders that the kit recommendation of 16:1 is too much oil. We recommend starting at about 24:1 and moving down to 32:1 after a couple of gallons burned. This is a good, safe, ball park figure and you won't go wrong following it.
Try using the search feature and type in 'Oil Ratio" and you'll have an evening worth of reading to do on the subject.
