just took spark plugs out to replace and they look a bit sooty (black ) it ticks over great and runs fine other than it sometimes is a little unresponsive when you press the pedal it takes a couple of seconds to pick up ?

Sooty plugs usually mean running rich, check your air filter.
When running right the plugs are usually a nice coffee brown.

Magnatec 5w30 fully synthetic is the recommended oil.
