You'll need to mix at 25:1 (40mls oil per 1 litre fuel)
Petrol has limited shelf life (as low as 30 days), so always mix with fresh regular unleaded petrol. the cap on the 2 stroke oil has a measurement on it to guide you or on the side of the bottle

Yes. You need to purchase two-cycle oil and mix it with petrol according to the chainsaw manufacturer instructions (this information is in the manual). It will specify the appropriate mix for your chainsaw.

How to refuel a sym jolie 50cc scooter, do you mix oil into the petrol tank, or do you fill the oil and fuel seperatley or does it mix it itself????


Pretty much all are normal petrol in the fuel tank and the oil is on another tank. The oil is mixed as it enters the inlet manifold.

Your manual is here. Section 2-3

I have an aprilia rx125 2008 & the oil petrol mixing system has been blocked off and now petrol & oil are mixed in the petrol tank, but the bike starts for 3-5seconds then stops & petrol comes out of


Hi Steve, and the usual suspects are:
1. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
2. Loose float bowl screws.
3. Damaged float bowl o-ring.
4. improper fuel level in the float bowl.
5. Worn or dirty inlet valve or seat.
6. Damaged or leaking float assembly.
7. Particle contamination in inlet fitting cavity.
For more information about your issue please visit the websites below. Good luck and have nice a day.

Is a Victa Sunbeam 160 Special a 2 stroke or 4 stroke? Wondering what additive to use with fuel. Thanks so much for your help.


hi there tanyajames88

your victa is a 2 stroke vc160 these units sare stated to run 25:1 fuel / oil ratio

that is 40 mils of 2 stroke for every 1.0 litre of petrol that mix

so if mixing 2 litres - 1st put in 80 mils of good quality 2 stroke oil then put in 2 litres of petrol , give good shake and fill up your mower tank

2 stroke oil that you would use for sthil chainsaw would be ok its hi quality

you could use some fuel stabilizer additive to hekp stop mix from going stale too soon
if wish but most times just mix enoyugh mix to het job done , then mix more if need it

that way mix is always fresh

What kind and how much oil should i put in the crank case of my 1975 suzuki ts 185 and would to thin oil cause it to lose compression?


ts 185 is a two stroke, the crank case oil is actually only the gearbox oil, the volumne is caste onto the side cover(like 750cc).near the filler cap.
The engine oil is mixed with the fuel and is pumped in from the oil tank under the seat.
The wrong oil or no oil in the tank under the seat can cause it to lose compression. and cause engine damage.
Visit a bike shop and get motorcycle gear oil20w50 for gearbox. and two stroke motorcycle engine oil for the oil tank.
As it is quite old someone may have removed the oil tank, thinking they will make it go faster or save weight or another stupid reason, if this is so you need to mix the two stroke oil with the petrol when you fill the tank at approx 25-1 ( 25 litres petrol mixed with 1 litre of oil)

Chainsaw will start then start smoking then shut off. What could be causing this not to keep running?


There is only one reason for excessive smoke from the exhaust, and that is because it is burning oil, and the oil can only come from the petrol ,so you need to refill the fuel tank with a fresh fuel/oil mix good quaility oil at 50-1 and try again. Is it possible you may have put chain oil with the fuel, or put it in the fuel tank rather than the oil tank?

Regarding makita petrol disc cutter dpc6410- how much oil do i need to add to a full tank?


Don't add oil to the fuel tank, it doesn't mix well in there and you'll almost always use too much oil. Mix your two-cycle oil and petrol in a gas can to get a 50:1 mixture. Read the directions on the two-cycle oil bottle for how much to use and put the oil in the can first so the petrol will mix well with it as you add it to the can.

My gilera stalker (49cc) may need an oil top-up. in fact, i can't see how much 2-stroke oil i need to put in, so it may be a lot. the question is, do i need to mix it with petrol or do i put it in...


There is a max mark on the 2 stroke tank visible through a slot in the fairing.
If you cant see that then fill with NEAT oil (no petrol) to within 2 inches of the top, this will last ages

Ride safe

What type of petrol and oil to use for a sabre 3350 chain saw


The best thing to do is see if your Mom has the operators manual. If not, the best thing I can do is guess. Most chainsaws are two cycle. This means that fuel and oil has to be mixed. There is a formula that you can find on line depending on what ratio is needed. The other chamber that says oil on it is the tank for the Bar Oil. That is the oil that lubricates the bar and chain as the machine is running. You should get some oil that is formulated just for bar lube. Do mix fuel and oil, do put in bar oil...Good luck...Lee

I put oil in the petrol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Put some fuel (1/2 tank) in the fuel tank, replace fuel cap and shake chainsaw. Empty this out and refill with fresh fuel (mix), Make absolutely sure to cleanup any spillage, it should be fine after that.
