Yes 40 - 1 mix is a common race mix and if you dont do weekly maintenance and regular rebuilds you would be better at 32-1 33-1 mixes as this is more oil to fuel mix so better lube and lower burn temperature inside the motor.
when changing to higher oil mix make gradual changes to the fuel mix 1 tank at a time and record your ration as your bike will respond to the changes sometimes well sometimes bad but if you do small steps and record the result you will know what mix is best for your area and bike
In short the more oil you can give it and still ride well the better fore engine life (within reason) but you will lose some performance compared to less oil mix like 40 - 1 ratio (race mix)

Whats the fuel/oil mix ratio for unidentified hedge trimmer?


It's always better to have more oil than less. The high end trimmers like Stihl Husqvarna etc mostly take 50:1 ... The avg is 40:1 ... If you know the cc of the engine that's a good start, but even just going with a 50 to 1 ratio won't kill your unit, u may have some white smoke, light... that's okay, that's just the oil burning...if it's a low cc unit, just go with 40 to 1. Better safe than sorry.

What is the fuel oil ratio per litre for a husqvarna 535rxt strimmer


If it is 2 stroke, take petrol /fuel and mix it with preferably synthetic2 stroke oil.

Ratio is usually 10L petrol mixed with 200 ml or 2 stroke oil, that is the best result, used it on my chainsaw, strimmer, moped, working for years without a glitch.

How much oil do I use per 1gallon of gas for a Husqvarna 223L weed eater?


for a 40/1 mixture use 3 ounces of oil ( 2 stroke) to a gallon of gas for a 50/1 ( which is what I recommend ) its 2.5 ounces to each gallon of gas, if you find that the machine is smoking a little too much,, back up on the oil just a hair,, but I don't think you'll need to

I have an 04 husky cr 125 and the fuel ratio i had is 32-1 and it fouled on me! i just go around the yard but sometimes on trails. should i go to a 40-1 ratio? or a 50-1 ratio?


Some guys will tell you to go to 50-1. Don't. 40-1 would be okay. If that doesn't stop the fouling, go to a hotter spark plug. An example would be BR8ES to BR7ES. The lower the number, the hotter the plug. By the way, you ARE using two stroke ENGINE oil and not MOTOR oil aren't you??? Please rate my answer.

"Echo Power Blend Universal 2-Stroke Oil can be used in all of our 2-cycle air-cooled equipment ever made. You may also use this oil in any other brand of 2-cycle air cooled equipment, but it should always be mixed at the 50:1 ratio whether or not it was a 32:1 or 16:1 etc. machine. This oil is the highest quality 2-cycle oil on the market today. There is no need to have more than 1 tank of fuel for your 2-cycle equipment any more."
The above excerpt is from the Echo FAQs (6) here:

The following ratios have been recommended for the last 10-15 years.
Dolmar, Echo, Efco, Homelite, Husqvarna, Jonsered, Makita, Oleo-Mac, Red Max, Ryobi, Shindaiwa, Solo, Spear & Jackson, Stihl & Tanaka; all recommend 50:1.

McCulloch, Poulan & Wen; recommend 40:1.
1 gallon of premium fuel to 3.2 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil.

I need to know the gas mixture ratio for a craftsman weedwacker


Hello mcguilmd:

>>All Two Stroke Engines will use a 50 to 1 Ratio using Today's Two Stroke Oils. I once had an Old Chainsaw probably from the 1950s, maybe Earlier 70s that had a sticker on it that said to use a 25 to 1 Fuel/Oil Ratio, but that would have been using Two Stroke Oils of the Time Period the Chainsaw was Manufactured. I was having a Problem with Oil Coming Out of the Muffler and Started Decreasing the Oil in the Gas. I Reduced the Oil Until it was a t a 45:1 Ratio and Decided to be Safe, I would Use a 40:1 Ratio Mix. In that Chainsaw I used 50 to 1 Ratio with no problems. Today's Two Stroke Oils compared to Yesteryears are more Efficient at Lubricating. It is like comparing Today's Synthetic Motor Oil to Motor Oils of Decades ago. All the Equipment I use in Landscaping, anything from a Weed Eater, Leaf Blower, Chainsaw, Hedge Trimmer, use 40 to 1 ratio, and I use all types of makes and models, Stihl, Homelite, Husqvarna, Shindaiwa, and Echo, Sears. I mix up a 5 Gallon Fuel can and use it in all of the Equipment for my Customers and for my Landscaping. I like my Fuel/Oil Ratio a Little Heavy, so I use a 40:1 Ratio. The Following was Copied and Pasted here from and MTD E-mail to me when I Asked for the OEMs Suggested Mixture for this Unit. The mixture, as described by the engine manufacturer, is a 50:1 ratio when using the approved types of 2-cycle engine oils.
50:1 ratio is a mix consisting of 2.5 ounces of 2-cycle oil per 1 gallon of gasoline.
The 2-cycle oil used should be approved and have one or more of the following specification titles: NMMA TC-WII, TC-W3, JASO FB, or JASO FC. NOTE: If unsure of the 2-cycle oil specifications, or the oil is not approved, use a 32:1 fuel to oil ratio. This ratio consists of 4 ounces of oil per one gallon of fuel.
NOTE: Always mix 2-cycle fuel oil and fuel in an approved gasoline safe container prior to filling the engine. Make sure to use a separate gas can for this 2-cycle fuel mixture and label it accordingly. Keep in mind that the fuel capacity of these engines normally is less than a gallon, therefore you will have to use this extra oil mixture for multiple fuel fills. Adding a fuel stabilizer will also help to increase the shelf life of fuel.
>>I Suggest Using a 40:1 Ratio and if Oil Starts Coming Out the Muffler then go to a 50:1 Ratio.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If I Missed Something or you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck
