guys & girls if your egine is hard to start in the cold use raw gas NEVER USE STARTING FLUID! i cant find the article on line but it basically says you can and eventually will blow your cracnk seal out. i had some articles on it when i had my avid w/ a 582 rotax and it was a big NONO. i know of 3 people who have done this to 3 different 2 stroke engines.
reason for spreading this is i say a guy start a rotax 185 today with it, sure it fired right off but than i showed him how to do it with out it and the other engine started up just as easily.
my 2 cents
