Question. How much oil should my motor be using? It seems it is using more than usual lately. It is also smoking a little bit. Runs great as it always has. Just wondering if I need to get it checked out.

Mine smokes more if I get the RingFree mix off a bit? I probably burn a gallon of oil to every 40 to 60 gallons of gas, 2003 VMAX 225.

Should be 1 gal of oil per 50 gal of fuel. 50:1 ratio

Makes sense. I'll check it. I'll keep a closer eye on my fuel additive as well. Thanks for the help.

Check the linkage close. Oil metering rod that connects to the carb linkage can have the plastic keeper break and pump goes to full rich on oil.
