In preparation for this summer flying, I inspected my engine, this is my JR IMZ 50 after 5 gallons, how does it look to you ?
I think the mix was right on or a bit rich because when checking glowplugs last summer there was usually a bulb of residues on the element (as shown on the pictures), but when the plugs failed the element was broken/distorted, your advices ?

Looks good, but may be a bit too rich. Glow plugs are like self cleaning ovens. The element should be clean.

Fuel is WildCat 30%,

From the manufacturer :
"Helimix contains 18% oil content and is total synthetic. Helimix was designed as a competition fuel with the aid of competition pilots. Their request was for a fuel that smoked less, made more power, superior mid-range transition, lower heat penalties, and smelled good. "

I like the "smelled good"

slyons2, thanks for proposing but I do it all the time, I dump the fuel then run the engine at idle untill it dies and then restart it a second time and run it again untill it dies. It "should" be clean but there is always residues remaining.
