My mower is acting like a Holden but its a Victa. I use two-stroke mix and standard unleaded. Is leaded any better? I used optimax once as a prank and I gained 5hp at 6000rpm! Seriously but does unleaded or leaded better in your lawnmowers donk? I ripped the carbies apart and now it seems to start now once every three heaves! My mowers just cut about every sort of lawn and has survived many a tall grass and amphibious invasions to foot high kaikuyu. Any mowers technicians here who can answer my fuel question as well as pranksters I spose....
Add abit of that octain booster, see what happens. we use unleaded for our wippersnipper and 2 stroke oil. Actually i wonder if it would work on a NOS system. Em i going too far, hey ive been reading a text book on Windows 2000 SERVER!!! sore brain
I ran a drum of nitro (mix with premium ULP) through my Rover mowere. It didn't make it perform any better but it sure smelled nice and made the neighbours wonder. It (the drum of nitro) was left in my safekeeping by a friend who went to the middle east and never returned. As it gets unstable with age I thought this was the best way to get rid of it
Personally I would go for a Stroker system, I hear you can up the capacity of your average mower (35cc) to around the 7lt mark, (7000cc), the torque improvement will shock you. I think Street Machine are actually running an article about a guy who did this and it cutting lawns all over Singleton at record speeds.
