hello, what you should do is drain out the gas from the tank into a clean container so you can add the oil to it and you should also check your spark plug make sure it's o.k. after draining out the gas try starting the blower a few times with out the spark plug wire connected to the spark plug this will flush out and of the pure gas from the fuel lines, after doing this re-connect the Spark plug wire and add your fuel/oil mixture and re-start, it might take a few times for it to start due to all the gas in the engine but it'll start also if your blower has a primer bulb you may want to prime it a few times after adding the fuel oil mixture to get it in the combustion chamber, if after doing this you still get nothing you'll want to re-place your spark plug it might be fouled out. good luck

What kind of oil do i use to mix with gas for my Poulan gas trimmer. Can i use WD30 motor oil or does it have to specifically say its for 2stroke engines? the ratio on the trimmer says 40:1 so i assume...


DO NOT USE MOTOR OIL!!!

There is a special 2-stroke engine oil mix that you can purchase at various stores that have outdoor equipment or you can also find mix at Walmart. There are instructions for proper mixing on the bottle.

Remember not to put 2-stroke mixed fuel in your lawn mower unless it is also 2-stroke (rare). And the converse is also true, do not put your 4-stroke lawn mower fuel in your 2-stroke weed eater.

If this is really helpful, please rate.

If your engine has a place to put oil, then your power washer uses ordinary gasoline.
The only type engine that uses 2-cycle oil and gas mixture is engine that has no place to put oil.

The standard gas/oil mix is 32 to 1. That means 4 ounces of two stroke engine oil per gallon of gas. NEVER use motor oil. Only use two stroke engine oil. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Too much smoke


Use TWO STROKE ENGINE OIL in the pump. If not using an automatic oil pump, then mix the gas and oil 32 to 1. That equals 4 ounces of TWO STROKE ENGINE OIL to one gallon of gas. NEVER use motor oil in the gas. Only two stroke engine oil. There may be an oil build up in the crankcase. Do a 64 to one gas/oil mix for awhile. Watch closely. when the smoke reaches proper levels go back to the 32/1 mix.

Can't recall what fluid(s) to use.


The fuel is a combination of a good two cycle oil and regular gasoline at a 1:50 oil to gas ratio. Pour in half the gas first, add the oil, and put in the rest of the gas. It needs to be well mixed. (Do NOT use just motor oil)

Run a good bar oil, like Stihl bar oil in the oiler tank. Costs a tad more, but clings to the bar better than most.

How much oil per gallon of gas


A fuel mix of 32 to 1 is the standard. That means 4 ounces of oil to one gallon of gas. Be sure to use two stroke engine oil in the gas. DO NOT use motor oil. 10w40 motor oil is for the gearbox.

A top rating would be nice. Thanks!

Motul off road 800 two stroke oil ?


The oil mix is 32 gas to 1 oil. That 32/1 mix equals 4 ounces of any brand of TWO STROKE ENGINE OIL per gallon of gas. DO NOT use motor oil. Motor oil is what goes in the gearbox. Use 91 octane gas.

I get a top rating on this one! Thanks Miera!
