SOURCE: what is the gas and oil mixture ratio

Hi, McCulloch chain saws have different mixtures depending on whether you use their brand or generic and is also dependent on the model. The three mixes are 32:1, 40:1 or 50:1. If you are unsure, use the 40:1 and watch the smoke, too much smoke use less mix, but don't run with too little. If you see any coming from the exhaust it is too much and can't burn it all. Good Luck, hope this Fixsya!

SOURCE: gas oil mixture

The header says that it is an electric saw which would only require bar oil. A 2-stroke gas engine, however, does require fuel mixed with a modern saw oil at 40:1 ratio plus bar/chain oil in it's own tank as well. Always premix the fuel and oil in a separate can and shake well even before filling the saw. Hope this helps!

What is fuel mixture on 25 cc craftsman weedwacker


This small engine needs a 40:1 ratio. Use only 2 cycle oil, not motor oil. If you are mixing one gallon of fuel use 3.2 ounces of the 2 cycle oil. This should give correct mixture so you do not get lots of smoke when you start. Take the time to measure. Note: there should be a marking somewhere on the engine about the mixture.

I have a sears 2 cycle mini tiller that worked great for the first hour but now won't start.


Do not use pre-mix fuel. Clean carburetor. 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.

Never owned a 2cycle product and some one gave me a John Deere t105c trimmer but dont have an owners manual and dont want to pay $20 -$40 for one just to find out how to fill with gas/oil mixture. Can you...


You need two-cycle motor oil, do not use regular motor oil. Almost all two-cycle motors are designed to run on a 50 to 1 mixture of gas and oil. Look for two-cycle motor oil at any store that carries two-cycle tools like chain saws, line trimmers, etc. A good bet is Lowe's or The Home Depot. If you get the 2.6 oz bottle you have to add that to one gallon of gas to get a 50:1 mixture. Always read the oil bottle for correct mixing amounts and mix the oil with the gas in a separate container then put it in your trimmer.

Need to know the gas and oil mixture for a Homelite 2 cycle weed wacker


Check your manual for the proper gas-and-oil mixture. For almost all modern two-stroke engines, a 50-to-1 mixture is recommended. That requires about 2 1/2 oz. oil for every gallon of gasoline.

What kind of gasoline?


  1. Check your manual for the proper gas-and-oil mixture. For almost all modern two-stroke engines, a 50-to-1 mixture is recommended. That requires about 2 1/2 oz. oil for every gallon of gasoline.


  2. Use only two-cycle oil for your mixture. This oil is made especially for these engines and can be purchased at gas stations, hardware stores or any other place where you buy regular motor oil.


  3. Pour the proper amounts of gas and oil into a fuel can. Shake the can well to mix it.


  4. Label your gas can with the mixture ratio. You can use the same mixture for other two-stroke engines.


  5. Shake your fuel can thoroughly every time you refuel. After a while, the oil will settle out of the gas, and shaking it up ensures that the oil and gas are properly mixed again before you put the fuel into your chainsaw.

I need to know the amount of oil to mix with one gallon of gas for 18 inch homelite chain saw


You need to mix 2.6 ounces of 2-cycle oil (NOT motor oil) with one gallon of fresh gas to get a 50 to 1 mixture. Most 2-cycle oil is sold in small bottles this size and have directions on them to get the correct mixture.

Engine quits


16:1 is WAY too much oil if you are using decent synthetic oil. 50:1 will be much better - regardless of what it says on the gas cap. Oils are much better now than they used to be.

Contrary to popular beleif, more oil does NOT help a 2-cycle engine. The oil (which does not burn) displaces fuel in the mixture, so there's less fuel than there should be. That means the mixture is LEAN, and lean mixtures run hot.

Also, check for a partially blocked muffler (likely with that much oil in the mix). This will also make the engine run hot.

Gas/ oil mixture


If it is a riding lawn mower it is probably not a two cycle engine so there would not be a gas oil mixture. It must be a 5 horse power or higher so it would use straight gas. I hope this will help you. donnyb60
