Hi Nick, Ryobi Weedeaters are all two stroke. They need a fuel to oil mix of about 40:1. This is why they dont have anywhere to put oil in. It goes with the fuel.

I want to know if my weed eater sb180bv blower/vac is 2cycle or 4cycle

Most weed eater products are two cycle. if you have to mix oil with the gas they are two cycle. If there is no place to add the oil like a four cycle then its two cycle. Do not run a two cycle engine without adding oil to the gas or you will burn it out fast

What is the oil to gasoline ratio for a 3.8hp mtd push mower?

Most mowers are four stroke machines and don't need oil put into the gasoline, it has a crankcase to support the lubrication. If you mower sounds like a chainsaw when it's running it's two stroke, if it sounds like most othe mowers it's a four stroke.

If by chance it is a two stroke (which I doubt) use 3oz of "two stroke engine oil" for each gallon of gas.

i know you have to change the oil and oil filter but how often and is that the only thing different from maintance on a 2-stroke?. Im getting an 04 kx 250f any help would be great!The two most important aspects of four-stroke maintenance are frequent oil/filter changes and regular valve clearance checks/adjustments. And some four-strokes (RMZ450 for example) have a manual timing chain tensioner that must be regularly checked/adjusted. Everything else is exactly like a two-stroke.,,,
