When I originally opened this topic, I didn’t realise what a big can of East German worms I’d be opening (and I only enquired on behalf of a friend!)

For the record my old DDR machines run on 25:1 and I shall be continuing to run it on that mix, I think that modern 2t oils burn more completely than oils available in the 1950/60’s so they won’t smoke as much, although a nice faint haze from the exhaust is very evocative! And as I use Putoline strawberry scented oil you also get a faint but nice smell of strawberries.
