Don't fret for now. Did you run the machine after? If so, there probably was enough residual oil mix still in the the tank/system to cover you.
If you did not run it, simply dump the gas in it and add the proper mix.

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
(128 oz.)
*INTERNATIONAL OIL per 1 IMPERIAL GALLON Gasoline
(160 oz.)
*INTERNATIONAL OIL per 1 LITER Gasoline
(metric)
32:1 4 oz. 5 oz. 31.25 mL 40:1 3.2 oz. 4 oz. 25 mL 50:1 2.6 oz. 3.2 oz. 20 mL

What is fuel mixture on 25 cc craftsman weedwacker


This small engine needs a 40:1 ratio. Use only 2 cycle oil, not motor oil. If you are mixing one gallon of fuel use 3.2 ounces of the 2 cycle oil. This should give correct mixture so you do not get lots of smoke when you start. Take the time to measure. Note: there should be a marking somewhere on the engine about the mixture.

What is the ratio of gas to oil for a 35cc engine


Mix 3.2 ounces of Poulan 2-cycle air cooled engine oil to one gallon of fresh unleaded gasoline to obtain the recommended 40:1 fuel to oil ratio.
Over a period of time oil will separate from gasoline. To properly insure oil and gas mixture, I recommend thoroughly shaking your oil and gas mixture before refueling your unit.
If the saw is to be stored for longer than 30 days - drain the fuel tank, re-tighten the gas cap, and start the unit and let it run until it stops.

How do I mix the gas/oil on my farmtouch chainsaw


Most persons use a 50:1 mixture of gas to oil.
That means put one ounce of oil into a quart and a half of gas.
Or two ounces into 3 quarts of gasoline.
Or, a little over two ounces into a gallon of gasoline.

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 have a gas operated 31cc Craftsman model number 316.798221 weedwacker trimmer 17 I mixed fuel with 2 cycle engine oil using a 4 to 1 ratio. The trimmer no longer starts. It seems as if it is about to...


If you have mixed your gas and oil to a 4 to one mix you have way too much oil in your gasoline. Drain out your fuel tank and carburetor. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Remove the spark plug and clean if necessary. Mix your fuel in a fuel container at 40 to one. Some sites even recommend a 50 to one mixture. (50 to one mixture is one pint of oil to 6 gallons of gasoline) Refill your fuel tank on the trimmer and try to crank, if it does not want to crank within 4-5 pulls then you may want to give it a very small shot of starting ether in the carburetor intake and try to crank again. Good Luck, I hope this helped, Please rate me, Thanks

The term "Unleaded gas only" refers to the type of gasoline to be used. You would use "Unleaded gasoline" instead of "Leaded gasoline". Yes, you will mix oil with the gas normally at a ration of 50 to 1. (1 pint of oil to 6 gallons of "Unleaded Gasoline"). If you do not put oil into your gasoline, you will burn your engine up due to lack of oil. I hope this helped, Good Luck Please rate me, Thanks
