Looked like an unlucky day!

Recommended Posts

As a learning point for us newbies: Given that both pilots had engine failure could there be a common cause such as sharing bad/old fuel or wrong oil mix. I am not very engine savvy so would be interested in the fact or informed opinion.

Wrong oil mix is a definate No-No. You can have too much as well as too little :?

In most cases stick to the manufacturers recommended dosage.

There is one engine (don't know offhand which one) that has built a reputation for better reliability with say 40:1 instead of 33:1. I'm sure someone else will know which it is.
