Questions about Puch Moped

David Brook /

"Bought a beauty of a moped, a Puch Sport MkII today.. with 1200 original miles.. no rust, nice and shiny.. runs perfect =)<p>I like it alot more than my targa, except for the lack of turn signals.<p>A few questions..<p>1) Does the ""do not use unleaded fuel"" still apply as it says on the sticker on the moped?<p>2) where's the gearbox to put in gearbox oil when I need to?<p>3) Anyone know of a third party signal add on which wouldn't look very out of place on the moped?<p>lastly.. what would a biturbo exhaust do to performance of it? It has a perfect unclogged exhaust pipe, and seems to have very quick acceleration, anyone know of estimated results from just replacing the exhaust?<p>thanks."

About your puch moped

"I can answer your first Question, David. <p>Unleaded fuel will most likely cause your gasoline tank liner to and corrode. Lead is somewhat of a lubricant and unleaded gas will be hard on your new moped's engine. You can't legally buy leaded gas any more and neither can you buy lead additive. But Lead Substitute gets the job done just like REAL lead! You should find yourself some Lead Substitute and add the proper amount to your Gas/ Oil mixture. I own a Puch Maxi simliar to yours. For 2 gallons of gas, I use 3 tablespoons of the lead additive, and 16 gas caps full of 2-stroke oil. <p>You can find the lead substitute around town somwhere. It's common for old cars. Have Fun!<br>"

Signals seem like they would just be a hassle. <br>Let the MK sport II be free.

">>For 2 gallons of gas, I use 3 tablespoons of the lead additive, and 16 gas caps full of 2-stroke oil.<< <p>Isn't that like 1:25 ratio, which's like 2x what the gas cap recommends? Is this because synthetic oil is used now a days or whatever? Explain, and I'll use the same mixture next refill =)<p>thanks,<br>David<br>"
