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.

Is there something that can be put in the fuel to keep the fuel line from disintegrating?


You can add a fuel stabilizer to the fuel to prevent that from happening. You should always add the stabilizer to new fuel and it can be used in all of your engines, everything from a string trimmer to your car. The ethanol in today's fuel is causing many problems, especially with 2-cycle and 4-cycle engines. You can buy Star Tron fuel stabilizer from PartsBuggy.com. A good size is the 8 oz bottle. It treats 48 gallons of fuel with one bottle.

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.
