I didn't realize that my Ariens 522 2 cycle snowblower is a oil/gas mix. I filled my tank full with just gas and no oil. Can i just add in oil and manually mix it?

Yes, you can. I thought it was a chain saw, but you can shake a snowblower :>) Put the oil in stir vigorously with a spoon.

I changed the category.

Need gas and oil mixture for 25 cc ut 08083 blower

Two-cycle engines use a mixture of oil and fuel to power and lubricate the engine. Homelite blower engines use a ratio of 50 parts gasoline to 1 part two-cycle engine oil. Two-cycle engine oil is commonly sold in 2.6-ounce containers; add it to 1 gallon of gas to achieve the 50:1 ratio. Two-cycle engine oil for outboard motors is not compatible with Homelite blowers.Use premium fuel,the blower,weedeater,etc. will last much longer!

How do I mix the gas and oil prior to filling the tank on YM 3 1/2 HP model 140 Snowthrower?

You should have a 4 cycle engine. There is no need to mix oil and gas. Make sure it is a 2 cycle before doing any mixing. It should tell you on the engine tag.

Ariens snowblower won't start

Did you drain the gas from last year? Gas is only good for a few Months. You should always run the machine dry at the end of the season or add Fuel Stabilizer at the end of the season. Id start by getting all the old gas out of the tank and the fuel Bowl on the carburetor. You will also want to check for spark. to make sure there are no electrical issues. Check oil level also. Depending on machine it may not start if oil level is to low alot of machines have a oil pressure switch.

Do I mix the oil and gas together and pour it in the gas tank or do I pour the gas in the tank and the waverunner mix's the oil and gas together?

Mix the oil and gas together first.
Or you can add some gas into tank, then add some oil, then add more gas, then bit more oil ... so oil-gas mixture is uniform.

I lost the owners manual and wondered if i had to add oil to the gasoline

Yes, you do have to add oil to the gasoline. All two-cycle engines must have oil added to the Gasoline, unless they have an oil injector, and chainsaws do not have an oil injector.

While you do not mention the make of your chainsaw, most modern saws use a fifty to one mix.
Older ones typically used a 25 to one mix, and very old ones used a 16 to 1 mix.
A thirty to one mix will work just fine, since you do not have a manual for your saw, and therefore do not know what the particular manufacturer recommends. You may be able to find out
what your saw takes on the Web, or, maybe from wherever you bought your saw.

Just follow the directions found on the bottle of quality Two-Cycle oil, and add the oil to the gas can.
Do NOT add the oil to the saws tank. You must mix the oil/gas first in a can, THEN fill up your saw.

What is the gas oil mixture for this product

If this is a 4 cycle engine you do not mix the gas and oil. The engine oil is in the crankcase just like your car. Hope this helps, Happy New Year.

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.

Gas oil ratio mix echo pb251c handheld blower

40:1 is the standard. You can achieve this by mixing a 3.2 ounce bottle of two-cycle oil with a gallon of gasoline. The best way to do that is to buy a one gallon gas can, add a little bit of gas then pour the entire 3.2 ounce bottle of oil into the tank, swish that around for about 5 seconds then fill the can the rest of the way.
