What is your recommendation for oil to fuel mixture on these motors . I have purchased a used one and I have been using 50:1 with a redline oil I'm my Evolution motor the Zen manual is open to interpretation. The motor is broken in.

Re: Zenoah G26 pilots

Stihl chainsaw mix at the ratio for the oil. If that sounds funny. Oil meant for 40 /1 doenst do well at 50/60/70 to 1. And it also applies an oil designed for 100/1 isn't meant to be used at 40/1. My preference is optimal. Have Stihl equipment and it's all 50/1 so now that's in plane engines too. Dle 20 is shinny through plug hole.
