    Im new to these and was wondering how many miles that everybody has been getting on their engines? Also, what oil and mix ratio do you use?

    Thanks,
    Pat

    i have about 100 miles on my engine probably but most of the riding is short 1 mile rides around my yard so the engine dosen't really get that hot. I use about 32:1 but only add 1 liter at a time,(easier to mix) the more gas you add the (leaner mix) the more speed you will get, but it may seize up or hurt the engine. Also use 2 stroke motor oil it is often sold in small bottles and is specifiably to run in a 2 stroke engine
