O.k. Now ya got me wondering. I didn't quite use up the last of my mix in a 5 gallon can. I added one of the lil thingys of oil for a 5gallon and only put in 4.3 gallons of gas. Will this affect anything?? Thanks

I run 4 oz. to a gallon, and that's real rich. Another thing to consider, is make sure you took your spark arrestor screen out.

Maybe a dirty or clogged air filter would be my thinking. Its making your mixture extra rich because its not getting enuff air?????
