If it's a 'four stroke/cycle' engine, then 10/40 or 15/40 oil, (the type you would put in your car)
is perfectly fine.
On the other hand, if it's a 2 stroke motor, you need to use the 'Gas Additive', which, simply put,, Is, the lubrication.
Normally, there are markings somewhere on, or near the fuel tank, that will indicate wether you need the 'Additive' or not.
There ya go:)

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.

What type of oil and gasoline do you nee d to run Craftsman 6.5 lawn mower?


generally all 4-cycle lawn mower engines are tuned to use regular unleaded gas ,(I personally use mid or high grade unleaded)....and for engine oil use strait 30 WT engine oil...... I often put a dash of fuel system cleaner in each gallon of lawn mower gas,it is not absolutely neccessary but seems to help moisture stay out of gas..(DO NOT USE HEET or other methenol based fuel additives for this can cause overheating or scoring of piston and cylinder...but rather use a petroleum based additive,this allows the small amounts of moisture in fuel to pass through the carbeurator without clogging filters or fuel system for smoother running)..also...if you put lawn mower up for winter it is always helpful to use a fuel stabilizer such as "STABIL" or other such products (follow directions for use) and be sure to change the crank case oil in the spring before using....this will give you much longer life from your lawn mower...
Keep air filter clean!!!..... Happy mowing!!!....so, the answer?...regular unleaded and 30wt engine oil...if you would like..they have special engine oil for 4-stroke engines at most hardware and walmarts n such...but is just expensive 30wt oil... Enjoy your day,Todd

Troy built 27cc string trimmer Model TB21 EC. What is the gas oil mix ratio?


4 cycle engines do not run on mixed fuel. Run on straight fuel. They have a spot to put oil in just like a lawn mover, and should be changed regularly. @ stroke engines run on mixed fuel.

My 1950 ford 8 n is slinging oil out the oil breather cap on the side of the block.It just started and its just flying out leaving a big trail of oil.Of course i shut it off.


Sounds like your rings are either stuck or broke. Check the compression, it's probably low or non existant on at least one cylinder. In either case it sounds like a tear down.

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
