View Full Version : A Puff of Smoke!!

About every 20 lawns or so, when i go to start the my mower, I get one small puff of smoke. I can't quite tell if it's oil or if it's gas. The mower has never done it on the first start up of the day.

Here's the mower...
Exmark LazHP 52"
23 KAW
Kaw Syn Oil
255 hours

I notice I burn about 1/4 quart of oil between changes.

Should I be worried?

all my kawis did that. they seem to load up with oil when you shut them down sometimes.

I have a 20 hp kohler that does the same thing with regular 10-30 oil, seems to have gotten better mine has 260 hours. I have a 17 and a 15 kawa and no problems with them
