The correct answer is Note: Customer, please check age of gas. Cannot be more than 30 days old.
Make sure to use fresh gas w/synthetic 2-cycle oil @ 40:1 ratio (1 gal.) Gas to 3.2 oz. Oil) .Do not use old or stale oil/gas mixture. Always use the proper oil/gas mix. If you do not, your engine will suffer rapid, permanent damage.

The specs say 40:1 so 3 - 3 1/2 OZ of 2 cycle oil in a gallon of gas.

I have a Ryobi 4-cycle S430 weedeater. Do you use regular gas? If so,what type of oil do you use?


A 4-cycle engine requires regular gasoline whereas a 2-cycle engine requires oil to be mixed with the gas.
A 4-cycle engine requires regular gas in the gas tank and engine oil in another tank. Your owners manual will tell you what grade of oil to pour into the oil tank compartment of the weed-eater.
A 2-cycle engine requires regular gas plus a certain amount of 2-in-1 oil mixed with it. The oil that is mixed into the gas container and shaken together to "mix" the gas and oil before pouring into the gas/oil tank helps to lubricate the moving parts of the engine like the piston movement between the piston and the pistons' wall known as the cylinder wall. Also the oil aids in the creation of a tight seal which causes compression to occur that is responsible for optimum operation of the engine itself. It also provides lubrication to the piston rings and reduces friction as the piston rings push against the cylinder wall.
4-cycle engine oil can be purchased at any oil store like Canadian Tire/Sears/Napa Auto Parts. Just ask for oil for your weed-eater and let them know that your engine requires 4-cycle engine oil. I am sure the service clerk will point you in the right direction.
I hope this helps!Have a great day!

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.

What is the current oil/gas mix for the excalibur 22" hedge clippers? How about the new oils like Echo an Brigg/stration that are used at 50/1. Would 50/1 be acceptable in the weed eater excalibur?


50:1 is 50:1 no matter whose 2 cycle mix you use. 50:1 is 2.6 ounces of 2cycle mix to 1 gallon (US) of gasoline. I recommend strongly to use a brand that contains fuel stabilizer. It will come in a 3.2 ounce bottle...still 50:1. The premium 2 cycle oils will be semi-synthetic or full synthetic and will claim "no smoke"

My weedeater brand trimmer won't start


I believe you have the wrong GAS AND OIL MIXTURE. MOST WEED EATERS are a Ration of 90:1 or even less 75:1 For WEEDEATER I would use a 50:1 or if you choose 32:1 should work. Use a good 2-stroke oil. DO NOT USE ANY OTHER OIL> You see the more oil you use the harder it is to start. Don't forget to Pump the fuel Bulb on the side before trying to start it.About 3 x should do it. GOOD LUCK and it is and does effect me when their is death by a LOVED ONE. My prayers are with you! From Mddoc13 ( BOB)

Do you use mixed gas for a ryobi weed eater??


Unless it has a tag or decal on it saying it is a 4 cycle then it uses mixed gas/oil at about a 50:1 ratio. Straight gasoline will freeze the piston in the cylinder in mere minutes.
