They do on mine, and it is upright. No where near the amount the glows do with 20% oil. Originally I ran this one inverted in a T-Clips, but it has been run for about an hour or more in the LT-40...

Glad I stocked up on glow. I have a full case of 15% SIG 4 stroke fuel, along with several other gallons of various brands. I used exactly 1 ounce on Saturday tuning and running up the Saito 72.
