    Yeah they "forgot" with mine too. Knowing what I know now I would use it without oil to burn out the motor, and then send it back.

    I emailed through ebay with a servicing issue and they didnt even bother replying. That, the oil issue, the fact that they bodged up a leak on the inlet, and the fact that they don't standby thier product enough to help with a simple enquiery- I won't be buying from them again. I'm not too far from Rutland so I'll be buying one of thiers next time.

    Hes on his hols at the moment mate, but I got mine from a place that sells lawnmowers and the like. Its a general multigrade oils so it should be easy to come by.
