What ratio did you mix it to?



1:25

Is it newish? 25:1 is only for the first couple of tankfuls, then should be 50:1

Not always. Too much oil in the mix makes it harder to ignite, especially when the plugs cold.

I'd also have a look at the spark-plug. It should look clean with no oily deposits

Take the tank off is easiest, and drain it completely. Draining it by just unplugging the fuel pipe generally takes ages
