Maintenance with Q16, how often flush or lube?

Post  rocketpony on March 20th 2017, 4:36 pm

I run q16 in my 600, which I jus started up for first time
So being corrosive , how often do I need to flush with a non oxygenated fuel? Or can I jus spray a lube or sumthin? And how often?
I'm new to q16
Thanks

After every use IMO if it's going to sit more than a day or two

So you drain the fuel cell and put in some c14 and run it long enough to flush out the fuel system and carb, or should you do more?

Wow that's a lot more than I thought
I figured if not being used could wait a week or so

What about if it's running every couple days?

Have a few friends that run Q16 in pulling trucks, usually running couple times a week during the season
They run regular race fuel through system at end of the season, or if apart spray everything down with WD 40
They also have a shutoff in fuel tank breather to keep Q16 from evaporating away when truck sits.
