    96 gti, how much oil should it be using? can you pre mix?

    New to me starter ski...

    ran great, until it didnt start second day. pulled plugs and they were fouled. It does smoke a bit at idle and putting around. New plugs and she took off again.

    Is there a way to disable the oil system and premix?

    A little smoke is normal. As long as your not eating more than a tank of oil to every few tanks of gas it's ok. You may have over choked it and fouled the plugs. Has the fuels system been rebuild? That could be a cause of hard starting. See the DIY at the top of the 2 stroke section. The oil system is very reliable, remember that you can't mix oil at the gas dock. It has to be mixed in the gas cans and mixed thoroughly otherwise if you pour the oil in after the gas your going to burn up the motor.
