Gas to oil mixture


Gas to oil ratio is a function of the oil you are using. Mix according to what the oil says not what the manufacturer of the engine says. Those ratios could/may be the same. IF you mix 16:1 oil (do they even sell that anymore ?) at a 50:1 ratio it will destroy the engine. There will be no problems at 16:1 as the oil recommends.
I have used 100:1 Optimoil (?) when I can find it instead of the recommended 48:1 of my 2cycle. No problems.
Mix the oil in ratio the oil manufacturer says to mix.

ST175G, 2 cycle engine, I lost the manual and I cant remember the percentage of the mixing oil and gas. It has been a few years since I did it. Please help. Thank you, Roger


the type of oil to use is 2 stroke oil ( not ordinary engine oil as for cars )and the ratio is 40:1
the engine type is a homelite engine and the ratio can be 40:1 or 50: 1
I prefer to set the ratio as to the smoke produced so if 40:1 produces too much smoke at full rpms , drop it back to 50:1
The correct mix is when there is JUST visible smoke at rpms
definitely no e fuels.

Oil petrol mixture for Rockwell 26cc weedeater


Two cycle engines run on a mixture of gasoline and oil. Each engine type is designed to run on a specific gas-to-oil mix ratio.
IMPORTANT: Use only oil that is labeled for use in "Two-cycle" or "Two-stroke" engines. Home Depot and other stores now have "premixed fuel" of gas and 2 cycle oil.
To mix two-cycle fuel, start by putting correct amount of oil in gas can. Then slowly add correct amount of gasoline. Do not try to mix gas and oil directly in gas tank of equipment.

IMPORTANT: Do not use any fuel that is over 30 days old. Do not mix more fuel than you are likely to use in a month. Old fuel can gum carburetors and prevent starting. Always use fresh fuel.

The chart below shows correct amount of oil per gallon that each mixing ratio requires. Expect that yours will be between 32 gas to1 oil and 50 to 1. 32:1 and 50:1 are most popular.
Ratio GAS:OIL UNITED STATES OIL per 1 U.S. GALLON Gasoline
(128 oz.)
*INTERNATIONAL OIL per 1 IMPERIAL GALLON Gasoline
(160 oz.)
*INTERNATIONAL OIL per 1 LITER Gasoline
(metric)
32:1 4 oz. 5 oz. 31.25 mL 40:1 3.2 oz. 4 oz. 25 mL 50:1 2.6 oz. 3.2 oz. 20 mL

What is the oil mix for 2 gallons of gas for a 2 cycle gas leaf blower


Only use 50 to 1 as that is what is specified.

To get 50 to one ratio with the 6.4 oz bottle of 2 stroke oil just add 2 1/2 U.S.. gallons and that will be 50 to 1 ratio so you will have the correct ratio .

Correct mix of gas and oil for Chain Saw


The ratio is 40:1, provided this is a gasoline homelite chainsaw. Find the suitable amount to put into the gas can at a ratio of 3.2 oz per gallon. The bottles that you buy the oil in have marks on them telling you how much there is, and often times, are sized to dump into a preset amount of gas. Put the oil in the can, then put the gas in the can, cap, and shake. Always shake before dispensing.

Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the oil manufacturer's recommended ratio. Today it is usually 50:1.
Fuel in the USA contains ethanol; try to use up your mix in a month or less. HTH
