What is the oil to gas ratio?
We recommend for all scooters a 25/1 gas to oil ratio which is approximately 5 ounces of 2 cycle oil for every 1 gallon of gas. We recommend using 87 octane gasoline known to be good quality, typically unleaded gasoline. The use of premium gasoline is not recommended due to additives. Also, it is important to use high quality oil which is explained further.
Are there any 4-stroke engine models available?
Although Martin Manufacturing has previously had 4-stroke model scooters, currently there are none available. However, it is still an on going project that would possible be available in the future.
What type of oil should I mix with the gas?
Always use high quality 2-stroke oil at all times. Most good motorcycle shops shock this kind of oil. It is extremely important to use only recommended 2-stroke oil. We recommend Maxima Racing Caster 927® made by Maxima Lubricants Santee, CA. Other oils we recommend are Klotz Super Techni Plate® and BG 2-cycle Motorcycle Oil Part #774®. The use of 2-stroke oils designed for other applications such as outboard motors(water cooled) or lawn mowers (low rpm) can result in severe engine damage.

Why are Martin scooters more expensive than the others?
