Hi John, it looks like 23 in the photos, but photos can do that so
perhaps its all ok. You probably just need to tune your camera :) There
will always be carbon on the pistons I would not worry about that. It
sounds like your using the right fuel, I think that matches 98 fuel
here, so if your getting no or very little pinging, your probably fine.
