Take us step by step the process you use to mix the oil. 16:1 should be MORE oil than 32:1, therefore less dangerous. It'l gunk up the motor but you can always clean it.

running at 24:1 fuel with new NGK BP6HS plug and adjusted the carb needle to one notch above stock (one notch down from the most top notch) I got a nice 30 minutes or more run time..the engine stalled out once but I managed to get it going again.. I got home, waited an hour for things to cool, then tried to start the engine again but cant seem to get it running.. I made sure things were cool and took out the plug... a small bit of oil and a dark tan color.. better then the other 2 plugs Ive used >< . The engine wont it still too rich ? Do i move the carb needle up another notch

I'm breaking in a bgf motor myself with less than 5 2.5l tanks on it.I my self was at 32:1 then went to 25:1, and now I'm at 16:1. My engine doesn't have any problems starting. I was running into a bog down problem to but I think I have it fixed, goodluck.
