    Running 16:1 will not make it four stroke, it will make it run lean (fuel to air ratio), and ruin the plug.

    Don't do it, even for one tank.

    Also, no need or reason to run a projected tip plug.

    Very true,,
    You can run as much oil as you want in a 2 cycle without 4 cycling as long as the ,motor(carb) is jetted properly for the climate and mixture :)

    I broke my first build in by the book using 16:1,,it 4 stroked unless I was pulling a hill or had a load on the motor,,i thought it was too much oil personally..the second build I used 32:1 for break in dino/castor,,did not notice much difference other than less smoke/slobbering and oil dripping from the muffler...think from now on I will break em in using 32:1,, that's the way Ive been doing it in my Japanese race engines for over 35 years and never had a problem with piston,rings,or bearings.

    Good times

    Tom :)

    The one he wants is a little different, it got the integrated CDI. But for that price you should just get a 4 stroke.

    I break in a new motor with the first gallon 20:1 mix, second gallon 24:1 mix, from there after I run 32:1 mix. 16:1 is a bit much oil and 32:1 is a bit light for break in IMHO. I stick on 32:1 mix because I would rather have a well lubricated motor and fouled plug than a dry dead motor. In my experience I don't get excessive smoke or oil dripping from the muffler (or fouled plugs for that matter) from running 32:1 mix.

    And just for the record, running a mix with more oil will LEAN up your mix, not richen it (as the oil in the mix will displace gas, less gas means leaner mix).

    32:1 and break it in like you are going to use it.
    40:1 once it has three or four tanks of fuel through it.
    Wait until it's broken in before trying to tune it.
