Nova Rossi Plus 4 .21ci (3.5cc) 2.5 gallons through mine and still running strong. I have had up to 13 minutes out of a tank in my MP9, 053 pipe works well for me on this also.

Idles very well also, had very limited flameouts with this motor also, still had the original glow plug in it unitl Friday (changed only for reliability purposes, plug was still working)

Just my experience with this motor.

V-spec , $279.99 minus $25 if you use and Amian code. Or better yet, Reedy 121VR(249.99), amain finally has these in stock, about 36 of them right now...
