What do i do i put gas in oil tank self propelled snapper?
If you did not try to mow the lawn, but shet the motor off before there was a loud KA BOOM.
If not, it is time to consider a new motor.
Otherwise just drain the crankcase like you would to change the oil.
If you have a friend that could help tilt the mower so almost all the gas is drained.
Now, put oil in the motor, 40 wt because there will still be a little gas left in the motor and when you mix gas and oil the gas is absorbed by the oil and the oil will thin out.
DO NOT! start it up and rev up the motor. You want to let any remaining gas to be taken up by the oil. Run around your lawn a few times at a moderate speed WITHOUT the blades engaged.
After this you can mow the lawn, at a moderate throttle setting, then drain the oil and fill it with the oil your owner's manual says to use.
Or just put around your yard for 30 - 40 minutes, then change the oil.
The above will only apply if you didn't mow until you had flames coming out of the exhaust and banging, knock ing noises were coming from the motor.
