B-12 (biodiesel) should have little effect, except that the biodiesel is less oxidativly stable than other 2-stroke oils (the biodiesel could be the problem).
I should have been more specific "B-12" meant to say "Berryman's B-12 fuel additive" I checked the mixture today after it warmed up a little, can't see any trace of the water. So, I am wondering, did it evaporate from the top or is the water still in suspension in the gas?

Thanks, Dabnis
