Hi, Thanks for the prompt reply.

I have read quite a bit re. Diesel fuel. The instructions that accompanied my MVVS 2cc diesel stated that the ether content should be 45%. I have been running 30-35% ether in my other diesels. Perhaps I should increase the ether content. I am curious to see if 45% ether will permit me to hand start my Diesels.

My flying mate uses a 1-1-1 mix and he has no problem starting his engines by hand. Another thing to try! His ED Racer started on six flips. He purchased this engine circa 1955. He started his Russian Mills .55 on three flips with this mix. Can one say,”Hello 1-1-1 mix?”

Be well,
