Seems like a photo of your Mini showing the front page of a current newspaper is way simpler.

I did not finish watching that video, because it is full of crap. To start with, if engine oil was as dark as the stuff in the red pan, either it has not been changed in many thousands of miles or the engine is already worn out. Oil gets black because of carbon from exhaust etc. getting past worn piston rings or valve guides. Gummy sludge results from other contaminants like water or coolant.
Flushing an engine with kerosene risks washing lubricant out of bearings etc., leading to a possible under-lubricated startup and wear/damage. Since it cannot be completely drained from an engine, it also will contaminate and dilute the nice fresh oil being put in. No wonder the oil is black and sludgy.
File that idea under "Snake-oil".
Kerosene might be OK for a rinse-down while stripping a motor down for rebuild.

You know wut?, 998cc is not really that bad, if it gets tuned properly, it's nimble.(i honestly dunno what this word means, but it sure sounds nice) .  im very happy with my mini now since i change the needle to a newer one. More power, less fumes, more mileage, and considering it still has the old motor oil, the last time i changed oil was 13months ago, and if i needed to add more oil, i just buy some 20/50 motor oil from 99cents store, works for me. Compression stays at 160psi +-3 across all cylinders.,, hmmm not bad.

Omg!! Im so happy with my new needle and jet combination. They call this rebuild kit RED, its because it has a red plastic tip. My other kit came with the car, and they call it a waxtat, i heard that there is a wax on the tip that expands when hot thereby equalizing the air and fuel mixture whatever., but i notice when i had it the car runs conservatively, not nimble .
Now, the throttle is very responsive. Feels like i can go on highways at 70spm (smiles per miles).
