    Hey all..my new 80cc shwinn ..has not broken in yet

    I used Lucas 2 cycle oil
    8oz to 1 gallon

    How long should I run this mixture?
    should I go to 4 oz per gallon of gas after 2 or 3 full tanks use?

    The way I've done it is to run 1 full gallon at about the ratio you've described above. I think it was actually 7 oz oil to 1 gallon gasoline.

    After that first gallon I drop it down to 3.2 oz oil to 1 gal gasoline.

    I don't know if that's the 'recommended' way or not. But I think it's close.
