Ratio of oil to gas?

Hi John:
Two stroke (also called 2-cycle) Mix at 50:1
Some of the Craftsman units were 4 stroke, supposedly environmentally responsible. They took straight gas and had oil in the crank case. Came with a dip-stick to check it.
Personally, I had one and it was the WORST piece of equipment I ever bought from Sears.
I'm back to a 2 stroke STIHL and it is GREAT!

What type of gas to use in a craftsman edger 358.773110

FUELING ENGINE This engine is certified to operate on unleaded gasoline. Before operation, gasoline must be mixed with a good quality 2-cycle air*cooled engine oil. We recommend Craftsman brand oil. Mix gasoline and oil at a ratio of 40:1 (A 40:1 ratio is obtained by mixing 3.2 ounces of oil with 1 gallon of unleaded gasoline). DO NOT use automotive oil or boat oil. These oils will cause engine damage. When mixing fuel, follow instructions printed on container. Once oil is added to gasoline, shake container momentarily to assure that the fuel is thoroughly mixed. Always read and follow the safety rules relating to fuel before fueling your unit.

How much oil to I add to the gas before putting it in my craftsman convertible?

Older units use a 40:1 mix while very new units use a 50:1 mix. I don''t know the age or model you have. Using 40:1 will NOT hurt a 50:1 machine. Here is a mix chart. Just 1/2 the stated ratios for a 1/2 gallon premix. 40:1 is 3.2 ounces/gallon of gas. Use half of that to make a half-gallon.

I accidently used gas only on a model that requires oil and Gas. Can I but a new motor bny itself?

Try starting it with a mix, 50 to 1 gas/oil i.e. 2% oil in gas.
If you were using the machine for any length of time though, there may be piston, cylinder or connecting rod damage.

What percentage of gas and oil do we mix into craftsman gas trimmer

You don't state how old your unit is. Most of the older units use 40:1 (3.2 oz. oil /gallon of gas or 1.6 oz oil/half-gallon gas). Newer models have tighter tolerances built into the carburetors (per EPA Emissions Standards) and are made to run 50:1 (2.5 oz oil/gallon of gas or 1.3 oz oil/half-gallon gas).
To be safe, I would run the 40:1 mix and use a synthetic 2 stroke oil or at least a blend. If it calls for 50:1 and you use 40:1, the extra lubrication won't hurt a thing.
