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.

Oil mixture for 1985f series 2 cycle lawn-boy mower


Contact your dealer ! but 32:1 sounds correct. 8 ounces of Lawnboy oil to two gallons of gasoline ....is 32:1, 8 ounces of oil to one gallon of fuel is 16:1 for the real old lawnboys,
When Toro bought out OMC,and started using Tecumseh mowers,the ratio changed in the late 80's or early nineties ! IIRC :o)

This machine uses oil / gasoline (unleaded) in the ratio 1:25

I have MTD Yard machine and don't know if it is 2 or 4 cycle. Oil should be-SAE30. Can I use oil for 4-cycle which they soid me i Can. Tire.(M otomaster)


If your mower has seperate fill caps for the oil and the gasoline, then you have a 4 cycle or 4 stroke engine. In this case use SAE HD30 motor oil. If there is only 1 fill cap and it says oil & fuel mix, then you have a 2 cycle or 2 stroke engine.
Good luck

Was just given one of these with no manual.... what is the oil to gas ratio??


Is it a 2 stroke or 4 stroke? if it has a plug on the bottom above the blade to drain oil (look under the deck on the bottom of the engine) it is a 4 stroke and you do not mix gas / oil in this type of engine. It works just like your car, change the oil every 2 months and keep good gas in the tank. If the engine has no oil plug to drain oil it is a 2 stroke and you do need to mix the oil / gas. is should mix at a 1 to 32 ratio. use low ash oil.

Gasoline in the crankcase


If, inside of the carburator the needle and seat does not close (dirt in carb) the fuel will slowly keep pushing through the carb,through the intake into the cylinder then into the crank case.
Do not run this engine until the carb. is rebuilt. The float in the carb.also needs checked to be sure it still floats and its at the exact factory setting.
Also have a new inline fuel filter installed.
Check for dirt in fuel tank.
Keep the air filter clean and in good condition.
I hope this helps you.

GOT GASOLINE IN OIL TANK OF MY LAWN MOWER BY ACCIDENT. sTARTED THE MOWER ONCE .IT STARTED BUT GAVE A GREY SMOKE AND DIED.I HAVE A MACHINE YARD MOWER FROM MTD.IT IS 22'' SIDE DISCHARGER.PLEASE...


Empty the tank of the tainted gasoline (Maybe add the right amount of oil and use it for a trimmer, etc), fill tank with fresh gas and clean the spark plug, since it is probably fouled out. You may have to clean the carb with some carb cleaner, and clean your plug a few extra times, but it should be fine. Hope this helps. Good luck.
