Re: Newbie questions
Howdy & welcome!!
There's lots of opinions on the 'correct' amount of oil to use in the break-in process. The only consensus is that 16:1 is too much oil. Some recommend 24:1, some 32:1, and some recommend up to 100:1 (Opti-2 only!!!!!!!). There are many threads to peruse through to gather info. Then, you've got to decide what's right for you. Do try to stick with 100% gasoline......ethanol blends can do 'funny' things to almost any small engine.
Best of luck in beginning what should be a very enjoyable hobby!!
You're never lost until you run outa gas.
