Its mainly petrol that is mixed with 2stroke oil that goes off.
But it does go well in the lawnmower.

Your thinking of another Paul who works at Surf and Turf not Paul F who if i'm correct is affiliated with another well known marine in Whitstable ! Paul F is if i'm correct associated with Herne bay sea cadets ! its a small place !!

Dan changing the subject slighty i was talking with Phil yesterday about meeting with you mid way between herne bay and Margate at some time in the future, seems as the weather is always pretty simular you tend to be out and about when we are and its a shame not to meet some place, now my engines sorted we want to get around your way for an explore sometime.
Let me know your thoughts.

imho after a few years on this site, jwalker is the top techie. I cheekily suggest he doesn't go in for a lot of hugging, weeping & bonding, but he knows his engines. Wish he lived next door.

Thanks for all the advice.

I think I will err on the side of caution on this one, and contact a reputable engineer. (Being an aux coastguard it would be embarrassing to have to call out the RNLI! in fact would possibly not live it down.)

Will take up the offers of PM's for details and contacts as soon as possible. Computer not behaving at moment.
