Hello,

About two weeks ago, my friend and I successfully started a 1998 Tundra II R which had been sitting for about a year. Unfortunately, my friend thought that it needed a 2 Stroke mixture so we mixed some 2 Stroke oil and gas and put it in the tank. Despite this mistake, the rig started! We took it out for about an hour and it ran fine.

Last weekend, I found that I could not start it. After consulting the user manual, I realized that we should not have put in 2 stroke oil, but instead, we should have topped up the injection oil. I put fresh gasoline in the tank, added injection oil, and it still would not start. I put in a new spark plug and tested the spark. It was fine. Still the rig did not start. I'm assuming that adding the 2 stroke oil gummed something up, maybe clogging the fuel line. Any tips on getting it going?

Many thanks,

Edward

One tank full with the extra oil won't gum anything up or hurt anything other than fouling the spark plug...Is the sled getting gas?..Is the spark plug wet or dry when you take it out?

Thanks for the reply! The plug is pretty dry when I take it out (this is the brand new plug I put in), even after priming several times and pulling the starter cord alot. The tank is full and I could not find any fuel shut off valve.
