Happy Flying and Blue Skies!
This is a 2-stroke engine and it MUST have oil mixed with the fuel!
As for fuel, we recommend the use of Avgas 100LL aviation fuel or premium ethanol free gasoline (see Fuel Tips), mixed with a good fully synthetic 40:1 2-stroke oil. Minari has stated that Avgas is OK to use with their engine, and this is our recommendation of fuel for so many reasons.
Failure to mix the proper Synthetic Oil with your fuel even once at the proper ratio will cause your engine to seize and void the warranty of your machine!
Breaking in your new Minari engine
New engines generate a lot more heat and this is what can cause them to seize unless they are carefully broken in. When you start the engine for the first time, run it at a fast idle until it reaches normal operating temperature (when the cooling fins of the engine are too hot to touch) and then for at least an additional 10 minutes. Readjust the carburetor at this time (see the “Basic Carburetion” instructions on page EN 15 and page IT 8). Readjustment is required whenever there is any change in the engine operating conditions such as ambient operating temperature and/or changes in altitude.
During the first 20 liters of fuel use, do NOT run the engine at full throttle/maximum RPM for more than a few minutes. If you have a CHT, keep the operating temperature below 390-420 degrees Fahrenheit until the engine is fully broken in.
Your new Miniplane Minari Paramotor has a schedule of regular maintenance that needs to be done as early as 10 hours of run time. Most things are easy and quick, such as to re-torque the head and check belt tension. Please refer to the Minari Manual for these important service recommendations for your machine.
