SOURCE: I need to know the gas mixture ratio for a craftsman weedwacker

Hello mcguilmd:

>>All Two Stroke Engines will use a 50 to 1 Ratio using Today's Two Stroke Oils. I once had an Old Chainsaw probably from the 1950s, maybe Earlier 70s that had a sticker on it that said to use a 25 to 1 Fuel/Oil Ratio, but that would have been using Two Stroke Oils of the Time Period the Chainsaw was Manufactured. I was having a Problem with Oil Coming Out of the Muffler and Started Decreasing the Oil in the Gas. I Reduced the Oil Until it was a t a 45:1 Ratio and Decided to be Safe, I would Use a 40:1 Ratio Mix. In that Chainsaw I used 50 to 1 Ratio with no problems. Today's Two Stroke Oils compared to Yesteryears are more Efficient at Lubricating. It is like comparing Today's Synthetic Motor Oil to Motor Oils of Decades ago. All the Equipment I use in Landscaping, anything from a Weed Eater, Leaf Blower, Chainsaw, Hedge Trimmer, use 40 to 1 ratio, and I use all types of makes and models, Stihl, Homelite, Husqvarna, Shindaiwa, and Echo, Sears. I mix up a 5 Gallon Fuel can and use it in all of the Equipment for my Customers and for my Landscaping. I like my Fuel/Oil Ratio a Little Heavy, so I use a 40:1 Ratio. The Following was Copied and Pasted here from and MTD E-mail to me when I Asked for the OEMs Suggested Mixture for this Unit. The mixture, as described by the engine manufacturer, is a 50:1 ratio when using the approved types of 2-cycle engine oils.
50:1 ratio is a mix consisting of 2.5 ounces of 2-cycle oil per 1 gallon of gasoline.
The 2-cycle oil used should be approved and have one or more of the following specification titles: NMMA TC-WII, TC-W3, JASO FB, or JASO FC. NOTE: If unsure of the 2-cycle oil specifications, or the oil is not approved, use a 32:1 fuel to oil ratio. This ratio consists of 4 ounces of oil per one gallon of fuel.
NOTE: Always mix 2-cycle fuel oil and fuel in an approved gasoline safe container prior to filling the engine. Make sure to use a separate gas can for this 2-cycle fuel mixture and label it accordingly. Keep in mind that the fuel capacity of these engines normally is less than a gallon, therefore you will have to use this extra oil mixture for multiple fuel fills. Adding a fuel stabilizer will also help to increase the shelf life of fuel.
>>I Suggest Using a 40:1 Ratio and if Oil Starts Coming Out the Muffler then go to a 50:1 Ratio.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If I Missed Something or you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

SOURCE: Correct gas to oil ratio for Homelite Mighty String Trimmer Model

most trimmers are 50:1. or 40:1. i would use synthetic 2 cycle oil and use the 50:1 ratio. i know guys with trimmers that require 50:1, and they use synthetic at 80:1 with no problems for years. they say the engine runs cleaner. i am a part-time lawn care operator.

ST175G, 2 cycle engine, I lost the manual and I cant remember the percentage of the mixing oil and gas. It has been a few years since I did it. Please help. Thank you, Roger


the type of oil to use is 2 stroke oil ( not ordinary engine oil as for cars )and the ratio is 40:1
the engine type is a homelite engine and the ratio can be 40:1 or 50: 1
I prefer to set the ratio as to the smoke produced so if 40:1 produces too much smoke at full rpms , drop it back to 50:1
The correct mix is when there is JUST visible smoke at rpms
definitely no e fuels.

How much oil do I use per 1gallon of gas for a Husqvarna 223L weed eater?


for a 40/1 mixture use 3 ounces of oil ( 2 stroke) to a gallon of gas for a 50/1 ( which is what I recommend ) its 2.5 ounces to each gallon of gas, if you find that the machine is smoking a little too much,, back up on the oil just a hair,, but I don't think you'll need to

I have a 340 Air Injection Chainsaw. We made sure it has gas/oil and chain saw oil. We get it started but it won't stay on? What are we doing wrong.


If it has an air filter make sure it is clean, also check the gas filter in the gas tank,

sometimes it will get gummed up and will pass very little fuel, it can be pulled out

by making a hook on the end of any wired coat hanger or stiff wire, once you pull,

it out remove the fuel filter , put the fuel line back in, make sure it is submerged

in the fuel, if it keeps running, just replace the fuel filter, the gas tank will have

two lines going to it, normally only one has a filter, also make sure the lines are

intact and don't have any cracks or breaks. make sure your gas to oil ratio is

correct. most chains will have it written on the chainsaw, or check your user's

manual. 40:1 ratio on older models , on newer models 50:1 good luck!

What type of petrol do I get for the chainsaw


What make and model of chainsaw do you have?

Chainsaws take the same gas you put in your vehicles, however the gas must be mixed with 2 cycle oil. The ratio of gas and oil depends on the make and model.

Reply back and I will look up the gas/oil ratio for you.

Thanks,

What is the oil type and oil/gas mix ratio needed for the Troy Bilt 31cc blower (TB310QS)?


I always suggest using a full synthetic 2 stroke oil for these machines. It provides superior lubrication qualities and burns cleaner than conventional oil. The fuel/oil mix ratio is 40:1. That is 3.2 ounces of oil mixed in 1 US gallon of gas. Half that to mix up a 1/2 gallon. You can find this info and more in your manual. The fuel info is located on page 10.

You will need Adobe Reader installed on your computer to view your manual as it is in PDF format. If you don't have it, you can get a free download from their site. It is safe.

Toro proline model 53030 how do you install line and what size line? also what gas do i use ? thnks


they are usually .60 or .80. mm line size. You use any gasoline that is FRESH ONLY! I can not over stress how many problems that saves you over time. But for that model (and many like it) you must understand its a 2 cycle engine (or 2 stroke) now this is VERY IMPORTANT. Gasoline alone in any 2 stroke engine will destroy it if used alone, without mixing special "2 cycle or 2 stroke" oil with it. Look at the gas cap, or a sticker or a label on the trimmer and you will see a 2 cycle oil to gasoline ratio indication number. That means what it implies, and yes, you mix the two together. Common mix ratios are typically 30:1 (30 parts gas to 1 part oil) Some vary up to 50:1 some as low as 25:1. If its not on the trimmer try the owners manual ITS THERE! generally that means a 2.5 ounce bottle of 2 cycle oil (Not Car Motor oil! There is a big difference in performance for 2 cycle motors. You need to mix 2 cycle oil types only) poured into a 1 gallon container of gas. Shake it up, fill your trimmer with that. Here look at this link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SuGfDNH6fXk&feature=related (Copy and paste it into your browser'd address bar, then hit enter.) They will show you all you need to know on how to restring the line.

Most all of these saws use a 50 to 1 ratio. However, i like to use a two cycle oil that has a TCW3 rating to it. This helps to fight again moisture and condensation when the saw isn't being used.

Missing operators manual for Evinrude 2 hp outboard motor


Your best bet is ebay for a replacement user manual. Take a look around, you will come across one... For the meantime, gas oil ratio should be 50 parts gas to 1 part oil, i.e. 50:1. General care: Dont go full throttle for any length of time. Cruise of 3/4 throttle... Always flush engine after use in saltwater, including washing down exterior. Keep spark plugs in good order and check prop for fishing line wrapped around in near the prop hub. Otherwise, get a yearly service and have them check the water pump and replace as needed, get it tuned etc and gearbox oil changed.
