Do you have to mix oil and fuel before putting in the fuel tank if so what oil and petrol do i need to use

Yes. You need to purchase two-cycle oil and mix it with petrol according to the chainsaw manufacturer instructions (this information is in the manual). It will specify the appropriate mix for your chainsaw.

Is it 25/1 petrol and oil for a sthil blower bg85 thanks

hi artwill3544


using sthil 2 stroke oil mix at the rate of 50:1 that is 20 mils of oil per 1.0 litre of petrol that you mix , or if you mix 5 litres you would pour in 100 mils of 2 stroke oil into a 5 litre petrol petrol can , then add 5 litres of petrol only and give good shake to mix , then fill your blower with that mix

Regarding makita petrol disc cutter dpc6410- how much oil do i need to add to a full tank?

Don't add oil to the fuel tank, it doesn't mix well in there and you'll almost always use too much oil. Mix your two-cycle oil and petrol in a gas can to get a 50:1 mixture. Read the directions on the two-cycle oil bottle for how much to use and put the oil in the can first so the petrol will mix well with it as you add it to the can.

I have bougt an old Ariens RT 254 and wonder if I shall use petrol with oil or not.

I can't find anything on an RT 254, but if you meant RT 524, that is a rear tine tiller with a 5 horsepower gasoline (petrol) engine. That engine should not require you to add oil to the petrol. You can purchase a generic service manual which does includeyour tiller here if you like.
Or, just look for a crankcase oil drain plug which sticks out the side of the very base of the engine, and a fill plug, which is angled and higher up and usually plugged with a screw-in plastic plug. Take that plastic plug out and check the oil - in fact, if it's an old machine, I recommend you drain the oil (using the lower plug) and refill it (until it is at the level of the upper plug). In any case, this confirms you don't need to add oil to the petrol. Happy tilling! Please rate my solution if helpful, thanks.

What type of petrol and oil to use for a sabre 3350 chain saw

The best thing to do is see if your Mom has the operators manual. If not, the best thing I can do is guess. Most chainsaws are two cycle. This means that fuel and oil has to be mixed. There is a formula that you can find on line depending on what ratio is needed. The other chamber that says oil on it is the tank for the Bar Oil. That is the oil that lubricates the bar and chain as the machine is running. You should get some oil that is formulated just for bar lube. Do mix fuel and oil, do put in bar oil...Good luck...Lee
