There should be a label stating the oil type somewhere on the engine or cap or owners manual, if not most manufacturers recomend a 30 weight oil. be sure to drain out the old stuff first.

Never owned a 2cycle product and some one gave me a John Deere t105c trimmer but dont have an owners manual and dont want to pay $20 -$40 for one just to find out how to fill with gas/oil mixture. Can you...


You need two-cycle motor oil, do not use regular motor oil. Almost all two-cycle motors are designed to run on a 50 to 1 mixture of gas and oil. Look for two-cycle motor oil at any store that carries two-cycle tools like chain saws, line trimmers, etc. A good bet is Lowe's or The Home Depot. If you get the 2.6 oz bottle you have to add that to one gallon of gas to get a 50:1 mixture. Always read the oil bottle for correct mixing amounts and mix the oil with the gas in a separate container then put it in your trimmer.

Where do i add engine oil to the motor? Not the oil for gas


I think you are saying that this is a 2-cycle motor (like most gas trimmers), that you already use a gas/oil mix, and you want to know how to add oil to the motor crank-case. If this is your question, then the answer is that you don't add oil to the motor. There is no place to add it. Unlike a 4 cycle engine (like in a car or most lawn mowers), the oil/gas mix is fed through the crankcase and is used to lubricate the engine, then is also used as fuel. good luck, Al K

How much oil to gas do i add


You need to make your gas:oil mixture 50:1. 2-cycle oil bottles have instructions that tell you how much gas to add to them to make a 50:1 mixture.

Troy built 27cc string trimmer Model TB21 EC. What is the gas oil mix ratio?


4 cycle engines do not run on mixed fuel. Run on straight fuel. They have a spot to put oil in just like a lawn mover, and should be changed regularly. @ stroke engines run on mixed fuel.

Do you mix the gas and oil together with the Troy-Bilt4 cycle TB575SS. Lost directions. Thank you


No. You do that for a 2-stroke engine. Your engine should have oil in the crankcase and you just need to check the level of it and add gas to it like a regular lawnmower engine.
