This was R.70. How do you start a V8 with this? :o

:lol: yip Rassie try my boat's small 140HP it can sip 125L in just one fun day with a goo dfe wbreaks in between. :lol: :lol: but that should be about enough 2 stroke oil if it's tank is empty. Wonder why it's been collecting dust and I rather be idling around in a V8 or on my delivery bikie. Yip it's even silly cheaper to rather use an electric lawn mower these days now too. But eish have you seen what motocycle oil costs? Some oil is almost R200/L and I needed 3.7L for my small bike. Luckily for Castrol and Midas I got some for a bargain of only R57.95/ L eish same oil at bike shop was extra R32/L. Funny petrol was like super cheap after that quote at under R15/ L pitty it don't last you 10 000km like the oil can. :mrgreen:
Yip luckily we don't have to waste and idle it away in rush hour traffic like most, I think that would make me terminally ill within a few months, unless I had a company car.

We are nearly there where we need to switch of the engine when filling up with petrol.

I dont have a V8 but with 4 carbs feeding a 4 cylinder engine it is nearly the same.
