A mixture of 40:1 would give good performance and protection with minimal smoke issues.
3.2 ounces of oil added to 1 gallon of gas would equal a 40:1 ratio.
Don't use outboard motor oil. Water cooled engines on those.Use a 2-Cycle oil specific to AIR COOLED engines.
Hope this hepls!

ST175G, 2 cycle engine, I lost the manual and I cant remember the percentage of the mixing oil and gas. It has been a few years since I did it. Please help. Thank you, Roger


the type of oil to use is 2 stroke oil ( not ordinary engine oil as for cars )and the ratio is 40:1
the engine type is a homelite engine and the ratio can be 40:1 or 50: 1
I prefer to set the ratio as to the smoke produced so if 40:1 produces too much smoke at full rpms , drop it back to 50:1
The correct mix is when there is JUST visible smoke at rpms
definitely no e fuels.

Oil petrol mixture for Rockwell 26cc weedeater


Two cycle engines run on a mixture of gasoline and oil. Each engine type is designed to run on a specific gas-to-oil mix ratio.
IMPORTANT: Use only oil that is labeled for use in "Two-cycle" or "Two-stroke" engines. Home Depot and other stores now have "premixed fuel" of gas and 2 cycle oil.
To mix two-cycle fuel, start by putting correct amount of oil in gas can. Then slowly add correct amount of gasoline. Do not try to mix gas and oil directly in gas tank of equipment.

IMPORTANT: Do not use any fuel that is over 30 days old. Do not mix more fuel than you are likely to use in a month. Old fuel can gum carburetors and prevent starting. Always use fresh fuel.

The chart below shows correct amount of oil per gallon that each mixing ratio requires. Expect that yours will be between 32 gas to1 oil and 50 to 1. 32:1 and 50:1 are most popular.
Ratio GAS:OIL UNITED STATES OIL per 1 U.S. GALLON Gasoline

*INTERNATIONAL OIL per 1 IMPERIAL GALLON Gasoline

*INTERNATIONAL OIL per 1 LITER Gasoline

Required fuel oil mix


Two-stroke oil with a 50:1 (Gas:Oil) mix ratio is required for the Husqvarna 125B leaf blower. Using the wrong oil or improper mixture ratio can drastically affect the performance of the leaf blower.

What type of oil do i add to the gas for a ry30240 weedeater?


Any type of 2-cycle engine oil will work fine. Just make sure it is 2-CYCLE engine oil, and not motor oil! Also,mix it at a ratio of about 1 part oil, to 40 parts Gas. Hint: The Ryobi equipment seems to like the 87 octane better than the low grade fuel, especially in high temps! Good luck!

What type of petrol do I get for the chainsaw


What make and model of chainsaw do you have?

Chainsaws take the same gas you put in your vehicles, however the gas must be mixed with 2 cycle oil. The ratio of gas and oil depends on the make and model.

Reply back and I will look up the gas/oil ratio for you.

Thanks,

Ratio for gas mixture


The ratio is 40:1. Use good quality 2 stroke oil, preferably Husqvarna, not the type you can get at car service stations as the cheaper oil will cause the engine to wear more quickly.

Was just given one of these with no manual.... what is the oil to gas ratio??


Is it a 2 stroke or 4 stroke? if it has a plug on the bottom above the blade to drain oil (look under the deck on the bottom of the engine) it is a 4 stroke and you do not mix gas / oil in this type of engine. It works just like your car, change the oil every 2 months and keep good gas in the tank. If the engine has no oil plug to drain oil it is a 2 stroke and you do need to mix the oil / gas. is should mix at a 1 to 32 ratio. use low ash oil.

I need to find out the gas and oil ratio mixture.


The correct ratio for a Husqvarna 155bt is 50 parts gas to 1 part oil, using more oil or the wrong type of oil will cause more damage then good, The high quality synthetic blends of 2 cycle oil like Husqvarna and Echo oils have almost no carbon ash content in them, Carbon ash will form deadly deposits in the exhaust ports and muffler that will rob power and destroy the engine. Also make sure you never use oil marked TWC, this is for water cooled 2 cycle engines and will not transfer the heat correctly for cooling an air cooled engine

I need to know the gas mixture ratio for a craftsman weedwacker


Hello mcguilmd:

>>All Two Stroke Engines will use a 50 to 1 Ratio using Today's Two Stroke Oils. I once had an Old Chainsaw probably from the 1950s, maybe Earlier 70s that had a sticker on it that said to use a 25 to 1 Fuel/Oil Ratio, but that would have been using Two Stroke Oils of the Time Period the Chainsaw was Manufactured. I was having a Problem with Oil Coming Out of the Muffler and Started Decreasing the Oil in the Gas. I Reduced the Oil Until it was a t a 45:1 Ratio and Decided to be Safe, I would Use a 40:1 Ratio Mix. In that Chainsaw I used 50 to 1 Ratio with no problems. Today's Two Stroke Oils compared to Yesteryears are more Efficient at Lubricating. It is like comparing Today's Synthetic Motor Oil to Motor Oils of Decades ago. All the Equipment I use in Landscaping, anything from a Weed Eater, Leaf Blower, Chainsaw, Hedge Trimmer, use 40 to 1 ratio, and I use all types of makes and models, Stihl, Homelite, Husqvarna, Shindaiwa, and Echo, Sears. I mix up a 5 Gallon Fuel can and use it in all of the Equipment for my Customers and for my Landscaping. I like my Fuel/Oil Ratio a Little Heavy, so I use a 40:1 Ratio. The Following was Copied and Pasted here from and MTD E-mail to me when I Asked for the OEMs Suggested Mixture for this Unit. The mixture, as described by the engine manufacturer, is a 50:1 ratio when using the approved types of 2-cycle engine oils.
50:1 ratio is a mix consisting of 2.5 ounces of 2-cycle oil per 1 gallon of gasoline.
The 2-cycle oil used should be approved and have one or more of the following specification titles: NMMA TC-WII, TC-W3, JASO FB, or JASO FC. NOTE: If unsure of the 2-cycle oil specifications, or the oil is not approved, use a 32:1 fuel to oil ratio. This ratio consists of 4 ounces of oil per one gallon of fuel.
NOTE: Always mix 2-cycle fuel oil and fuel in an approved gasoline safe container prior to filling the engine. Make sure to use a separate gas can for this 2-cycle fuel mixture and label it accordingly. Keep in mind that the fuel capacity of these engines normally is less than a gallon, therefore you will have to use this extra oil mixture for multiple fuel fills. Adding a fuel stabilizer will also help to increase the shelf life of fuel.
>>I Suggest Using a 40:1 Ratio and if Oil Starts Coming Out the Muffler then go to a 50:1 Ratio.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If I Missed Something or you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck
