Are you on neat oil? I run 50/50 when I can but I have the CAV pump so it needs a bit of diesel in it to keep it happy.
75/25 and a good slug of mineral two stroke oil

Re: Potential UK power failure

couldn`t agree more , i did the same thing for the same reasons . I’m drawn to having a generator but even with 150l of fuel, it would only buy you 3 or 4 days of power.
