What is the 2 stroke petrol mix for a garden strimmer, Ryobi 25cc PLT 2543 please?


hi there keithprobert

the ratio to use if using top quality 2 stroke oil is 50:1 that is 20 mills of 2 stroke oil per 1.0 litre of petrol that you mix.

but if not using top quality 2 stroke oil use ratio 25:1 that is 40 mills of 2stroke oil per 1.0 litre of petrol that you mix.

Hi Please can you confirm what fuel the Ryobi rg6700k generator takes?


Hi. I've been looking online and there's no information about this model. However this is how to tell which fuel it uses. If it has a spark-plug it burns petrol. Diesel engines don't have spark-plugs they use glow plugs which are different. Spark-plugs have a spark gap which the spark jumps across while glow plugs do not.

If it has a separate place for putting oil, and a dipstick for checking the oil level, then the fuel is petrol only. If it doesn't have a place for oil then the fuel is petrol mixed with 2 stroke oil. I hope this answers your question.

New Ryobi petrol c/saw wont start.


If it is brand new, sounds like you should return it for the retailer to have repaired.

ryobi PSC 3046y3e 30 cc petrol strimmer ratios of petrol to oil


WELL IF THERE IS NO 2 STROKE OIL TANK THEN YOU MIX IT WITH THE GAS. THIS IS HOW THE ENGINE GETRS ITS LUBRICATION AND WILL BLOW UP AND SEIAZE WITHOUT IT.MOST OF THESE SMALL ENGINS RUN AR 20 TO 1. OUTBAURDS RUN AT 50 TO 1. IF YOU PUT TO LITTLE ITS NO GOOD AS MENTIONED ABOVE. IF YOU [PUT TOO MUCH IT IS NT AS BAD AS IT WILL SMOKE A BIT AND POSSIBLE FOUL THE PLUG AFTER A WHILE. I WOULD GO WITH 230 TO ONE THAT WOULD BE 20 PARTS GAS TO 1 PART OIL 20GAL GAS TO 1 GAL OIL IS THE SAME AS 5 GAL OF GAS TO 1 QUART OIL OR 2 1/2 GAL GAS TO A PINT OIL OR 1 1/4 GAL GAS TO 1/2 PINT OILM GET THE PICTURE NOW. ITS DIVISION. AFTER A WHILE OF RUNNING IF IT SMKES AND THE PLUG FOULS JUST ADD A BIT MORE GAS TO YOUR MIX AND CLEAN THE PLUS WITH AN OLD TOOTH BRUSH AND I ALWAYS MARK MY GAS CAN WITH BLACK MARKER OIL/GAS MIX 20:1 OR WHATEVER.
REGARDS, PAUL
