SOURCE: What gas and oil do I use on the Honda Excell 2600 pressure washr

That engine requires a separate gas and oil. There is an oil sump with oil level needle and cap on the side of the engine. This is where you fill it with special pressure washer pump oil available from any good outdoor store or place where pressure washers are sold. As for gas, Unleaded or Premium unleaded gas will work fine. Try not to use any fuel with ethanol blends however. Here is a list of oils that will give you an idea what to buy for the oil reservoir: http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fs%3Fie%3DUTF8%26ref%255F%3Dnb%255Fss%255Fgw%26field-keywords%3Dpressure%2520washer%2520pump%2520oil%26url%3Dsearch-alias%253Daps&tag=onlinetoolrev-20&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=390957

SOURCE: Honda Pressure Washer HP 5 not starting

You can try spraying some carburetor cleaner into the carb. If it starts for a minute, your carburetor need cleaning. When you added new gas did you remove the old gas first? Is the air filter clean?

SOURCE: Honda gas power pressure washer runs for awhile then cuts off.

did you pour all of the old gas out before you started to use it. Sometimes condensation builds up in gas tank when stored. You need to dump old gas an put in new gas.

You need to start the unit and let it run for few minutes to get worm, make sure the water is fully open and the unit is fully cleaned. Push on the trigger on and off for few times not letting the unit shutdown, then start increasing the fuel mixture ¼ turn and push on the trigger again and see…this could be that the unit need service or the governor springs getting week if you got one on your unit…let me know how that work for you and please do not forget to rate my service so we can improve on it with your help.

What is the ratio of oil to gas?


2 cycle are all 50:1 We use 1 pint of Quicksilver oil for a mercury to 6 gallons of preferably non ethanol gas. That is actually 48:1, 48 pints of gas to 1 pint of oil.

I cannot remember the type of gas or the fuel mixture (gas to oil ratio if required) for my pw2050 2000psi pressure washer,last used 2006 cannot locate the manual,


Pump regular gas and no oil mix. Your engine has a dipstick which means its a four stroke engine.

The oil goes inside the motor. For summer use I recommend 30 weight non-detergent oil.

Change it out once a season *(Beginning would be preferred). Drain the gas out at the end of the season.

Hope this helps!

What type of gas does it take


Is this a big power washer as shown in the photograph?
Is there a separate place to put oil for engine and pump?

If your engine has a place to put oil, then the engine takes ordinary gasoline
If you have a small engine like a weed-eater or chain-saw, and there is not a separate reservoir for oil, then you mix 2-cycle engine oil with the gas in a 40:1 ratio

Pressure washer oil:
Pump fills about half-way up with SAE20 or SAE30 non-detergent motor oil
Engine fills half way up dipstick with 10-W-30 motor oil

Oil to gas mixture for a craftsman 3.75 hp pressure washer


There is universal 2 cycle oil available (pro-mix at Lowe's for example) that is good for all ratios from 16:1 to 50:1. With this oil you add the same amount of oil to the gas independent of ratio required. One gas can, no ratio worries. Hope this helps.

It may be due to some water getting into the engine. I would change the gas and change the oil.
