fuel/oil mix

fuel/oil mix??? i may sound retarded but the guy i got my moped from said to mix it 25:1 but at that mix i have noticed it friggin' stinks.! am i using the wrong ratio or is there something else i need to do or is that the way it is supposed to be?

Re: fuel/oil mix

yea the store i bought my bike form said to mix gas and oil with the same ratio i have noticed that it smokes more and the smoke has sort of blue tint to it i think i will reduce the ratio so i stop looking like a fag burring too much oil

Re: fuel/oil mix

25:1 seems like alot of oil to me

Re: fuel/oil mix

yeah i thought so also but i dont know. this guy sold it to me out of his garage so i am not sure he knows much about this stuff. what do you use?

Re: fuel/oil mix

Go with between 40:1 and 50:1 and you should be fine..

Re: fuel/oil mix

wow thats a lot more gas... you dont htink i could have damaged anything running with that much oil?

With the newer and better oils you can go at 40;1 and be safe. Use a good synthetic and you will have hardly any build up of carbon and the bike will run smoother without the tell tail smokescreen.

Re: fuel/oil mix

cool thanx for the help i appreciate it

Re: fuel/oil mix

no too much oil will only foul your plug... too little oil on the other hand will seize your piston :P

Just take your plug out and spray some car cleaner on it and it will clean right up!

Re: fuel/oil mix

ok sounds good thanx

Re: fuel/oil mix

Excess oil could have fouled up the plug, or carboned up the piston & exhaust. If you only ran a tank or two of this mix, it's probably just fine.

Use the ratio that others have suggested (40-50:1 with a good synthetic oil), and all should be well.
