there is usually a fuel/oil ratio (i think yours is 50:1) you must buy the 2 cycle oil and mix it with gas at the ratio reccommended by the manufacture. the bottle may say 6 oz per 1 gallon = 50:1 So 1 bottle of 2 cycle oil for every gallon of gas. mix them in a proper fuel can. then let the cutting begin.
First check that your Mantis needs an oil/gas mixture, most of the newer Mantis tillers have four-stroke motors meaning they have oil in the crankcase and use straight gas. If your Mantis needs oil mixed in the gas use a 50:1 ratio. That's usually 2.6 ounces of two-cycle oil (it's sold in bottles that size) to one gallon of gas but read the oil bottle to get the proper mix ratio.
The proper gas/oil ratio is 50:1, that is 50 parts gas, to one part (2) cycle oil.
If you plan on leaving gas in the tank when not being used, I always recommend adding some gas stabilizer, such as Sta-bil, which makes starting the chain saw easier regardless of how long the fuel mix has been sitting in the tank or saw (up to 2 years according to Sta-bil label)
hello. the mix has not changed over the years. it is important however to use ryobi oil. go to any home depot and get the small bottle of ryobi oil that is enough for just one gallon of gas, use new gas fresh from the pump, and enjoy.
40:1 fuel mix ratio is good for this model. you put gas in the upper tank and 2 stroke oil in lower tank the mix pump will do the mix, if you are not sure the pump is working properly, mix 4 ounces of 2 stroke oil into 1 gallon of gasoline and put the mix in the upper tank, it reach the carburator by gravity
