Does it have a dipstick that indicates the amount of oil?
If it has, it is a 4 stroke and does not require an oil/fuel mix.
If it does not have a dipstick, it is a 2 stroke and will require a mix of oil and fuel.
Without knowing anything about your genset, I would think that it is a 4 stroke.
A 2 stroke motor would deliver the power too high in the rev range.
Hi, Check for a crankcase with oil in it on the motor...if you have oil in the motor already then you do not need to mix it in the gas... I am very sure that you will find this motor does not need the gas mixed... Run straight gas... usually it is good to run Prem in small motors..
Yes if what you have is a two stroke engine. If it is just follow the mixing instructions on the bottle for the proper ratio for your blower. The ratio is usually molded into the fuel cap on the blower.
By luvcatzlotz on Sep 08, 2010 Have Poulan BVM200VS 25cc gas blower. It has compression, is getting fire and has fresh fuel mixture. Will not start. Any suggestions? It is less than 1 yr old.Answer: I have the same problem. Thats why the company is called Poulan.. Because thats what you do half the time when you own one. PULLON the starter cord...............
You have/had too much oil in it. After it is brought down to proper level, it may have to burn the oil that is in areas that it should not be in. Another thing that may cause this, is a dirty air filter, can cause enough suction to pull oil around valves, and other places a clean filter will not. It may have oil in the filter too.
Drain all the gas/oil mix out of the system. Press the red prime bulb several times until there is no fluid in the line. Pull the spark plug and clean it with a soft dry rag. Reassemble and fill tank with 2 cyl/gas mix. Prime it, then pull several times on the start cord. That should work.
