I'm wondering if the problem is not the Amsoil, but changing the mix ratio from 50:1 to 100:1 or 80:1. Haven't heard anyone mentioning retuning the carb after switching to a different ratio.
It is my understanding that you need to adjust the carb after changing the mix ratio. Can't remember if less oil makes it run richer or leaner.
I am up to retuning the carb... Can you point me in the direction to a good video or set of instructions on retuning. Carbs...
