What is the oil to fuel ratio for a cub cadet trimer/brush cutter?

The exact mix ratio for Cub Cadet trimmers varies, depending upon the exact model. Cub Cadet's ST 228 2-cycle trimmer model uses a mix of 2.6 fluid ounces of 2-cycle oil blended with 1 gallon of unleaded gasoline or a 50-to-1 ratio. This equates to 20 milliliters of 2-cycle oil to 1 liter of gas. The Cub Cadet BC 210, on the other hand, requires a mix ratio of 40 to 1, or 3.2 fluid ounces of 2-cycle engine oil to 1 gallon of unleaded gasoline

What kind of gasoline i need?

According to the manual, "use unleaded regular gasoline with a
min. octane value of 91." You need to mix oil into the gasoline at a rate of 50:1 or 2.5 fl ounces of oil to one gallon of gas. If your saw has little power or is very hard to start, it may have been run with straight gas in which case the piston ring or cylinder or both may be damaged enough to warrant replacement.

My 1998 Buick park avenue burns gas faster than it usually does. What should I do.

If you use ethanol blended gasoline this is normal. ethanol blended fuel doesn't burn as well as regular unleaded

if you use unleaded non-blended fuel
A good thorough tune up should remedy this.

change spark plugs and wires
air filter
fuel filter
engine and transmission oil and filters should do the trick

I want to know is it true that 4stroke motor uses only benzin or it can use benzin+oil? I have buy scooter ZN50QT-19 and i dont know which kind of fuel he uses :)He is 4 stroke

All four stroke motors use straight gasoline or benzin. Only 2-stroke engines use a gas (benzin) + oil mix. Even some later model 2-stroke engines run straight gasoline and have a pump that mixes the oil with the gasoline. Most 2-strokes built after the mid-70's have the pump. You can easily by examination of the throttle cable. If it's equipped with a pump, the throttle cable will split from one cable on down to two cables where it enters the engine. Read your owner's manual.

Repsol MOTO Gasoline Motor OIl,4T,Sintetico synthetic blend 10W40

Repsol Moto 4T Sintetico Synthetic Oil - 10W40

Synthetic blend lubricant with high thermal stability, designed to meet the needs of the most technologically advanced 4-stroke motorcycle engines.
  • Excellent starting and lubrication in cold conditions due to its low viscosity.
  • Meets JASO MA API SJ requirements.
Its fine to change your oil with synthetic, Just be sure that you use synthetic from now on... I don't think its advisable to switch back to regular oil after using synthetic.

I have an Echo 300E leaf blower and can't find the gas oil mixture.

Here it is straight from ECHO:

Link is

A 50:1 ratio with 89 Octane fuel can be used in all ECHO 2-stroke equipment, provided the oil is ISO-L-EGD and JASO M345 FC/FD certified. ISO-L-EGD and JASO M345 FC/FD oil must be used with a mid-grade (89 octane) or premium gasoline in all 1997 and newer engines.
A 50:1 Ratio = 1 US Gal. 89 Octane + 2.6 fl. oz. ECHO POWER BLEND OIL
Echo Power Blend Universal 2-Stroke Oil can be used in all of our 2-cycle air-cooled equipment ever made. You may also use this oil in any other brand of 2-cycle air cooled equipment, but it should always be mixed at the 50:1 ratio whether or not it was a 32:1 or 16:1 etc. machine. This oil is the highest quality 2-cycle oil on the market today. There is no need to have more than 1 tank of fuel for your 2-cycle equipment any more.
