Here is owners manual, which is basically worthless, but it does show the filler cap, as # 38 in the parts. It is in the top of the oil tank/axle housing, opposite the engine. As long as oil does not get contaminated, it does not need to be changed. The Blue Max is the engine not the splitter. For start, you need to use 1/2 throttle and full choke for initital start. as soon as it starts, take the choke off and let engine settle out, then go to full throttle and start splitting.
