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.

what is the gas oil ratio of the ryobi leaf blower


Most Ryobi products made in the past 5 years use a 50:1 fuel mix. Check the fuel cap to see if it is listed there. The older Ryobi product used a 32: 1 fuel mix ratio and it was usually listed on the sticker that shows you how to work the choke. If in doubt, go with the 32:1 ratio. The only thing it will cause is premature fouling of the spark plug. Too little oil in the mix will cause premature engine wear.

50:1 is 2.6 ounces of 2 cycle mix to each gallon (U.S.) of gasoline.
32:1 is 4.0 ounces of 2 cycle mix per gallon.

I recommend to use a 2 cycle mix that is specifically designed for lawn equipment and contains fuel stabilizer. The ones with stabilizer will usually be .5 ounces larger.

Good luck!

My Ryobi 700R "EZ" weedeater smokes excessively.


Check the fuel/oil mix ratio you are using. Some Ryobis use a 32:1 mix and some use a 40:1 mix. There isn't much difference there. To be on the safe side, if you machine is possibly running or tuned a little "lean" I would start off with about 4 oz/gallon oil to gas mix. Use synthetic 2-stroke oil also. Your machine will perform much better.
