Re: Maxima formula K2
I run 40:1 in all my two stroke engines right from the first start.
I'm betting you are running it too rich if you have oil dripping out of the muffler...
the 16:1 in the "manual" is simply wrong.
Try 32:1 or 40:1 and see how you like it.
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
