OK.. Just the question I wanted answered.. I'm storing inside a shed no insulation... So full tank and do ya think I should continue break in with added oil to the fuel next year...I only got 70 miles on the first start run on the new mill.. At this point I wasn't able to drain the synthetic oil before my first break in trial. BC DAN suggested that I break in with regular oil for better ring seal...all good advice welcome....

Yes, I would add the oil one more time to the fuel tank again next fall. Did you happen to notice if the oil level went down in the oil tank during your 70 mile run? Hopefully it went down enough to notice assuming you burned a half tank of fuel. I would switch the oil in the oil tank to regular next fall and run through a full tank of it (dino oil). Don't be too concerned if you can't drain the oil tank completely of synthetic. After you have burned most of the dino oil you can switch back to synthetic. As for using a fogging spray I think it's okay to use and follow their directions. I never use it because my sleds are inside an insulated building and I start them once in a while during the summer.

The older I get the better I was; In fact now that I think about it I am a legend.
