Hi Mates!

1. Well, we bought a Honda 50 Elite for my wife and she now
enjoys scooting to work especially with gas prices being about
$1.75/gal. She weighs about 125 lbs but I weigh about 210 with
clothes on and the manual says the weight limit for the scooter
is but 200 lbs. Should I abidge by the manual?

2. Our automotive mechanic suggested we add an ounce of 2-cycle
oil directly to the gas, although the engine has oil injection.
He thought this would reduce piston/ring wear and increase
compression. I guess this also increases pollution.

Thanks,

Marshall (Newbie to the scooter world.)
