    Nothing wrong with that. If you are nervous about it not using any oil, mark the level on the tank and go ride it. Note that it did go down after done riding. However, if it runs ok you are probably getting enough oil in it. These motors don't last long without oil in them.

    What plugs to run depend on what ski you own..and you didn't mention that.

    If you haven't already, I'd run through the fuel system upgrades on that ski to make sure it stays up and running well. Replace the fuel lines (if it still has grey tempo lines), rebuild the carbs, add triple outlet pump, replace fuel select valve, etc...

    Don't know what your ski is, but generally 1 oil tank should last about 4 tanks of gas.
