hi. this might be a very basic question but im a new moped user.
today i put new gas and oil into my 1977 puch maxi and it took a little while to start up. when it did it was running about 5mph slower than it normally does and after about 10 minutes of riding it started to get really smokey and smelly like oil. the only difference i could think of from when i was riding yesterday, when it was working fine, was that i put new gas and oil in. would it get all smokey and smelly if i put too little or too much oil in to my gas? i assume that it would. if so, what do i do to fix it? haha.
also, yesterday my moped sounded like it was misfiring for some reason. at least i think thats what its called, it made little popping noises occasionally and it would even make it shut off sometimes. once again, i tried to think of the only diifference that occured on that ride and all i could think of was that it was raining and its the first time i've ridden it in the rain. ive heard before of mopeds running poorly in different types of weather. could that be the reason? if not, why else would my moped make little popping noises and shut off. it would start up again fine, and then pop fine minutes later and shut off, and finally after i let it run at a low speed for about 10 minutes it worked fine again.
