Is it 4 stroke or 2 stroke


Does it have a dipstick that indicates the amount of oil?
If it has, it is a 4 stroke and does not require an oil/fuel mix.
If it does not have a dipstick, it is a 2 stroke and will require a mix of oil and fuel.
Without knowing anything about your genset, I would think that it is a 4 stroke.
A 2 stroke motor would deliver the power too high in the rev range.

What is the fuel and oil mix ratio


Depends on what the tool motor calls for premix wise.
Premis oil comes in premeasured container based on a 2.5 g or 5gal mix of gasoline to one small container of pre-mix oil.

What kind of oil do i use to mix with gas for my Poulan gas trimmer. Can i use WD30 motor oil or does it have to specifically say its for 2stroke engines? the ratio on the trimmer says 40:1 so i assume...


DO NOT USE MOTOR OIL!!!

There is a special 2-stroke engine oil mix that you can purchase at various stores that have outdoor equipment or you can also find mix at Walmart. There are instructions for proper mixing on the bottle.

Remember not to put 2-stroke mixed fuel in your lawn mower unless it is also 2-stroke (rare). And the converse is also true, do not put your 4-stroke lawn mower fuel in your 2-stroke weed eater.

If this is really helpful, please rate.

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 is the fuel mix for 359


hi there troyandbec

pauly46 here
'
the ratio you should use is 50:1

that is 20 mils of 2 stroke oil for every 1.0 litre of petrol that you mix

so if you want to make 2 litre mix use 40 mils of 2 stroke oil , then add 2 litres of petrol only and give good shake

note use good quality 2 stroke oil , such as sthil or husqvarna oil from your outdoor power shop


but if using general 2 stroke oil from a garage use 40 mils of oil for every 1 litre that you mix
this ratio is 25:1 this mix is on the richer side

cheers hope this helps

Have mislaid my handbook and can't remember the 2-stroke fuel mixture. Is it 50:1 or 40:1? Thanks.


What is the machine you are asking about? If you use a good quality synthetic 2 stroke oil, if you mix it at 40:1 you will not have any problems, whether it is a 40 or 50 mix.

Fuel ratio 2 stroke yahama YZ125


32:1--40:1 Any less than a 32:1 mix and she will smoke and foul plugs(not to mention wasting money on mix) Any more than a 40:1 mix and your top end ect. is not being lubed enough which will lead to costly top end and engine repair..... 40:1 is good for a synthetic mix...And 32:1 for a non synthetic mix.... hope this helps ya....

I just need to know if all gas weed eaters use the same gas/oil mix thanks


All 2 stroke motors use more or less the same oil/Fuel mix, BUT You MUST know the exact amount for your particular engine. I believe for your motor it is 40:1.
The commonest Ratios are about 5% (20:1) - 6% (17:1) and newer motors are usually 2% (50:1). I have also included 3% (32:1) because many tuned motors use this ratio.

Confused a little


A 4 stroke motor does NOT have Oil in the Fuel. There is NO fuel mixture. Just use regular gas. The only place you need oil is in the sump, and regular 20/30 motor oil will be fine.This only needs to be replaced when low on dipstick in crankcase.
