Is model460 148cc engine 2stroke or 4stroke


4 stroke. Is there a dipstick on the engine? check the oil level. If there is a dip stick it is a 4 stroke and no gas -oil mix is needed. Mostly 2 cycle are for weed trimmers etc where weight needs to be light and where an engine will be used in all positions vertical, horizontal etc. usually a smaller type engine say like 30-50 cc.

What is the fuel mix for a 128cd model weed eater


A good fuel mixture ratio for any 2 stroke weedeater or chainsaw is 50:1. That equals out to 2.6 oz of oil per gallon of gasoline. Most 2 stroke oils can be bought in pre-measured containers at hardware stores or small engine dealers. It is best to not mix more than 2.5 gallons at a time. Hope this helps, Daniel.

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.

Do you add the oil first or the gas first?


If you're talking about mixing two-cycle oil with gas for a two stroke motor, always mix it in a gas can then pour it in the weed eater. It's easier to put the oil in the gas can first then fill it with gas to get the two mixed well.

Confused a little


A 4 stroke motor does NOT have Oil in the Fuel. There is NO fuel mixture. Just use regular gas. The only place you need oil is in the sump, and regular 20/30 motor oil will be fine.This only needs to be replaced when low on dipstick in crankcase.

Hi im after the fuel mixture for a 125L husqvarna straight shaft brush cutter.thanks


From you manual:
Two-stroke oil
For great results and performance use HUSQVARNA two--stroke oil, which is specially formulated for our two-stroke engines. Mixture 1:50 (2%). To maximize the life of your trimmer, you may choose to use a high quality synthetic oil formulated for two-stroke engines. Mixture 1:50 (2%). Never use two--stroke oil intended for water-cooled outboard engines, sometimes referred to as outboard oil. Never use oil intended for four-stroke engines.
WARNING! Always ensure there is adequate ventilation when handling fuel.

1 gallon of premium fuel to 2.6 ounces 2-cycle oil. 2.6 ounce pre-measured containers are available at most chainsaw outlets.
