Question about Garden
I put oil directly in the tank of the blower instead of mixing it with one gallon of gas! I put the same amt of oil for one gallon directly in the small tank. It started then smelled and smoked a bit, then stopped. What do I do now? Can I drain and start again with the correct ratio? Help! It's been over 3 years since I used it and it would have been NICE if the ratio had been printed on the darn thing.
I agree finding the ratio is no as easy as it should be. yes. drain the tank. don't use the old gas somewhere else. use fresh gas & mix ratio in separate gas can or container. use a bit of ether/starting fluid into the air-filter inlet opening help fire it up. a new plug is fairly low cost and easy and that might also be needed after the oil bath and 3 years.
