Free two-stroke premix

Postby Silkie » Sat Apr 30, 2016 4:11 pm

About 15 litres petrol premixed with semi-synthetic two stroke oil at 100:1 plus about 400ml of said oil free to a good home or homes.

Collect from MRC Barcaldine by Monday lunchtime or can deliver Monday afternoon between Oban and Edinburgh.

'Tis a kind offer but as my egg whisk only uses a couple of litres in a year, it would be far too excessive for me. My mind boggles as to why you have such a quantity.

Silkie's outboard is her main engine and the venerable Yamaha was a thirsty beast.

You don't have to take it all. :)

I'd normally just add some fresh petrol and use it for another season, however, your post infers that the venerable Yams coat has slipped off the shoogly peg and fresh fuel is needed for the running-in process?

Silkie has gone all four-stroke and I want to use the right stuff in my shiny new motor, at least initially. I could use up the old fuel by adding the odd pint from time to time after running-in but it just seemed easier to give it away.

How wrong can you be? :)

No takers for free energy then?

Disappointing.

Disappointing.

I'm now the proud owner of a 2 stroke so could take 5 litres.

I think that I need to run it at 50:1 so would take some of the oil too.

Will need to organise a meet.

I'll send you a PM.
