Default Help, Do I mix oil with my first tank of gas.

Do I mix oil with my first tank of gas? I bought two 2012 summit sport 800R ptek sleds with only 24 and 28 miles each. I assume they are not broke in yet. I drained the fuel and it appeared darker than normal 91 octane fuel. So maybe it had oil in the gas already or maybe the gas was just getting old.

Correct! You need to put a few "run in" or "break-in" miles on these.
These are also equipped with RPM driven oil injection pumps. They are adjustable, but I would leave that to a PRO!
These engines will smoke when first fired up.

Age will cause discoloration.

So maybe it had oil in the gas already or maybe the gas was just getting old.
You should NOT need to fatten the fuel with oil! Let the oil injection system do it's job.

I would suggest using Non-Ethanol gasoline ONLY!

Have fun with them!
