B175 oil mix ratio.

Unread post by nickjaxe » Tue Aug 25, 2015 8:17 pm

All the other 2 stroke devices I have run on 50/1.

The Bantam I bought a few months ago has a book fig of around 30/1 but that was written over 50 years ago.

I am tempted to run it at 50/1 with a modern semi synthetic...what do you guys think.

50/1 Sounds about right from memory, I wouldn't trust my memory though as our mechanical chicken has never run.

I'll have a search around the forum, I'm sure Greenbat had a thread about this with lots of useful info in.
