Blue smoke comes out my exhaust only when choke is on

Blue smoke is usually the result of burning oil. It should not be burning at all, as it shouldn't be entering the combustion chamber or leaking on or in anything in a properly operating "4 stroke" (or 4 cycle) engine. Blue smoke in exhaust is not a normal condition for a properly operating "4 stroke" or "4 cycle" engine.

When the choke is on, the mixture of fuel and air is brought from "Stoichiometric" (about 14.7 parts air to 1 part gasoline or a "14.7:1 ratio") to a more "rich" mixture (about 13:1). This is not the ideal mixture to run, but it makes it easier for the engine to start and stay running until warmed up. When the mixture is rich, is is not uncommon to see black smoke - which happens because of incomplete combustion in the engine. The balance of the combustion happens in the exhaust system, where the energy in the fuel is converted only into heat and zero power. Since there is little air in the system, black smoke is produced. It may even smell of raw gasoline, too.

When running at proper mixture ratios of fuel to air, little if any smoke should be observed in the exhaust gases. It is possible that this small amount of oil being burned is so minute that it is not readily visible under these conditions - but is probably present never the less. You should carefully monitor the engine oil level and keep it filled. Oil leaking in the combustion chamber can indicate a problem that can be expensive to repair.

Two cycle (or two stroke) engines on the other hand, require that the oil and gasoline be premixed in the tank or are blended together "on the fly" and for this reason is not unusual to see blue smoke in the exhaust gases even when unchoked.

I hope this helps & good luck!

What type of gas to use in a craftsman edger 358.773110

FUELING ENGINE This engine is certified to operate on unleaded gasoline. Before operation, gasoline must be mixed with a good quality 2-cycle air*cooled engine oil. We recommend Craftsman brand oil. Mix gasoline and oil at a ratio of 40:1 (A 40:1 ratio is obtained by mixing 3.2 ounces of oil with 1 gallon of unleaded gasoline). DO NOT use automotive oil or boat oil. These oils will cause engine damage. When mixing fuel, follow instructions printed on container. Once oil is added to gasoline, shake container momentarily to assure that the fuel is thoroughly mixed. Always read and follow the safety rules relating to fuel before fueling your unit.

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.

I need an oil change and I cant find an oil that has SG in the label. What should I use?

You can use oil with an API rating of at least SG and therefore can use today's oils with an SN rating. The API service rating is basically a classification assigned to signify the oil's ability to reduce friction and oil consumption, improve emissions, and provide better lubrication. The API ratings are backwards compatible, but not vice versa, meaning SN will work for SG but SJ will not work for SM.

How do I change one gallon of a 50:1 gasoline mixture to 40:1?

  • 40:1(gasoline:oil) ratio requires 3 ounces of oil.
  • 50:1(gasoline:oil) ratio requires 2.6 ounces of oil.

  • So for you to change to 40:1 you need to add .6 ounces of oil

    Need to know gas mixture

    Yours is not a current model and I did not find a manual. The following is an excerpt from a 26cc MightyLite Blower/Vac UT08550/UT08951 "Operator's Manual":
    This product is powered by a 2-cycle engine and requires pre-mixing gasoline and 2-cycle lubricant. Pre-mix unleaded gasoline and 2-cycle engine lubricant in a clean 1 gallon container approved for gasoline.
    Recommended fuel: This engine is certified to operate on unleaded gasoline intended for automotive use.
    Mix Homelite Premium Exact Mix lubricant with gasoline according to the instructions on the package. If Premium Exact Mix lubricant is not available, use a high quality synthetic 2-cycle engine lubricant, mixed at 2.6 oz. per gallon (US).
    Do not use automotive lubricant or 2-cycle outboard lubricant.
    NOTE: Premium Exact Mix fuel mix will stay fresh up to 30 days. DO NOT mix quantities larger than usable in a 30 day period.
    1 gallon (US) 2.6 oz.
    1 Liter 20 cc (20 ml)

    If properly adjusted your blower will operate fine on 50:1 regardles of what the manual reads. HTH
