Did you clean or replace the spark plug, since this problem started? If you used an excessive amount of oil, the plug may have been seriously fouled. Just a thought. Hope it helps.

My strimmer was working ok when I put it away 2 days later it won't start plenty of fuel going to carb and tried a new plug why


Carb fouled. You probably are using regular gas to mix your 2 stroke fuel...the ethanol in the gas is very bad for small engines.

What does 50 to 1 ratio means and how much gas and oil I need foe a dirt bike


THIS IS VERY EASY TO FIGURE OUT..THIS IS A RATIO OF 2 STROKE OIL TO GASOLINE MIXTURE..FOR ALL TWO STROKE ENGINES ONLY..MOST TWO STROKE OIL CONTAINERS HAVE THE CONVERSION CHART ON THEM FOR THE PROPER MIXTURE..ALWAYS SPEND THE MONEY AND BUY A GOOD BRAND OIL ..ALWAYS PREMIX YOUR GAS IN A SEPARATE GAS CONTAINER SO YOU CAN MIX IT UP VERY WELL BEFORE USING IT IN YOUR EQUIPMENT..NEVER STORE YOUR GAS TOOLS WITH FUEL IN THE GAS TANK..ITS BEST TO RUN EMPTY BEFORE STORAGE..THIS WILL PREVENT THE FUEL FROM GUMMING UP YOUR CARB AND SUCH..SAVES MANY HEADACHES..PLUS SAFER..

What fuel does stihl MS 192 T take, 2 or 4 stroke?


these small engines take 2 stroke oil/gas mixture, usually a 50 : 1 ratio, a little heaver on the oil is better than too light. the oil in the gas lubes the internal parts of the engine. if straight gas is introduced into gas tank just remove & replace with 2 stroke mixture. if engine has not been operated with straight gas, no harm will be done.

My Craftsman 5.5 hp 14" rear tine tiller starts but doesn't run for long. It blows black smoke and quits. The gas is new and the oil is good.


Black smoke looks like it's burning too much oil. If it is a 2 stroke engine try a lower ratio of 2 stroke oil to gasoline mixture. Make sure you are using 2 stroke oil!
If it's a 4 stroke engine find out why and or how the oil is getting burned.

2004 mercury 50hp 2 stroke loses power at high throttle


Be sure of the oil/gas mixture. There are also altitude variations for oil /gas mixtures (which are very minimal). Be sure that your fuel cell is properly vented, and that the vent isn't obstructed (thumb screw in the fuel cap).

How much oil do I ideally put into a full gas tank on my 2 stroke Kymco Like 50? can you put too much?


Hi, not familiar with this bike,does it not have a separate oil tank,?, if your machine is pre mix this means you mix the correct amount of oil and fuel together as. Single form of lubrication, this way the oil gets directly to the engine parts, when the fuel,oil,and air mixture enter the engine the spark ignights it and the engine running process is started, the mixture is atomized to a form of mist, to much oil would render the mist to sticky, and seizure may occure from overheating, as would also be the case for to little oil, MY RESEARCH DOES NOT COME UP WITH A 4T 2 STROKE
ONLY A 4 STROKE WHICH OBVOUSLY HAS NO OIL ADDED TO THE PETROL.

What fuel does my Echo pb500H use??? 2 stroke oil gas mixture????


2 stroke means that it is a gas mixture. 4 stroke means that there is no gas oil mixture.

Fuel is VERY flammable. Use extreme care when mixing, storing or handling, or serious personal injury may result.

A 50:1 ratio with 89 Octane fuel can be used in all ECHO 2-stroke equipment, provided the oil is ISO-L-EGD and JASO M345 FC/FD certified. ISO-L-EGD and JASO M345 FC/FD oil must be used with a mid-grade (89 octane) or premium gasoline in all 1997 and newer engines.

A 50:1 Ratio = 1 US Gal. 89 Octane + 2.6 fl. oz. ECHO POWER BLEND OIL

Echo Power Blend Universal 2-Stroke Oil can be used in all of our 2-cycle air-cooled equipment ever made. You may also use this oil in any other brand of 2-cycle air cooled equipment, but it should always be mixed at the 50:1 ratio whether or not it was a 32:1 or 16:1 etc. machine. This oil is the highest quality 2-cycle oil on the market today. There is no need to have more than 1 tank of fuel for your 2-cycle equipment any more.

I have a 1984 suzuki rm 125 it has always ran good for me. until recently it just putts and runs for maybe 20 secounds and then stalls. i tried to run start it and it kinda fired up but there was way more...


Are you mixing regular motor oil in the fuel? Doesn't this bike have a reservoir for 2-stroke oil? You must use 2-stroke oil in that reservoir. Buy it online if you can't find it locally.
