    Idiot friend put mixed gas and oil in 2005 rxp

    As the topic says, I got a call this morning to hear that my rxp got dumped with half a tank of mixed oil and 91 octane. He said the ski fired up no problems, took off and then it slowly shut down and would no longer start.

    We have drained the tank almost fully. Put a full tank of 91 octane and took a look at the plugs. They were dry. We put some Starter fluid in the cylinder but she still won't fire. I know a little oil usually won't have a huge effect on the ski, but half a tank of it would certainly make sense for the ski to stop firing and stall.


    Any quick fix tips?

    Thanks

    Just put in a fresh set of plugs and you should be fine (im sure the plugs just got fouled), its not going to hurt anything. I sometimes throw in some race gas from my KTM 300xcw that is mixed 32:1 in my ski before it goes bad.

    I have had friends do it to there skis when they first got 4strokes.... And yep just put in new plugs. It will fire right up. Ofcoarse that is because you have stated you already drained the mix out.

    New plugs and new friend. Also, if you keep him around, make sure he is not in charge of gassing up the ski's in the future.
