What gas ratio do I use

Most two cycles are 40:1 ratio. The easiest way is to purchase 2.5 gallon gas can, and the 2.5 ratio oil bottles. Place the full bottle of oil in the can and then fill with gas. Mix well and will be ready to use.

Just bought a new Jenn-Air grill and cant get the temp past 250. Any ideas what i am doing wrong?

First, check that all the gas lines and flame bars are clear of any 'things' or bugs. I had a similar problem with a Webber grill and found out my problem was with the gas bottle. The new Overflow Protection Valve required on LP bottles can closed off or severly slow the flow of gas when the bottle is full and the valve is opened quickly. It will let enough gas flow to light the grill but won't let the fire get high enough to heat the grill up. Turn all the valves off on the grill and gas bottle. Open the gas bottle valve slowly then turn on the grill burner and try lighting it. If the flame is still very low try again or you have to let it burn at the low level until the OPV float drops down and the valve doesn't impede the gas flow. The best way to avoid this in the future is to not fill the gas bottle to the top when you have it refilled. Just ask the LP attendent to not fill it all the way.

My gas heater regulator and some of the pipe frosts up and the gas seems to get blocked. The pilot light just flickers.It sometimes works for a couple of minutes. I took it back to the supplier who told me...

okay you carda was 4.5 kg bottle cannnot find what you have put on , at there site , so take it is the same bottle ? gas bottles will only fill so far ,you weigh the bottle say 10kg when empity you set the scales to 20 kg them fill the bottle when scale tips itis full , if you overfill a pressure relief kicks in letting out the over pressure so you can not over fill.. now freezing you could well have aleak on the lines or the reg is not working sticking open too much gas passing causing it to freeze up, this the best if can think of .

Weber Q300 - Gas bottle runs out very quickly

Yes turn the valve off at the tank so you do not loose gas. You do not have to disconnect the tank from the BBQ though.

Sears gas grill

If it was me I would return it. You did the right thing by testing it on another grill. You should not have to accept a new grill that is not working properly.

My propane camping stove is burning with alot of soot.there seems to be an oily discharge in the line when i disconnect.the line runs directly to a 20 lb bottle bypassing the regulator as it is a high...

soot is incorrect gas / air mixture--too much gas
I am thinking that it is designed to run with screw on bottles ( low pressure ) yet you have connected it direct to a 20 lb bottle with out a regulator and have got adaptors to enable that
Not only do the regulators act as blow back extinguishers ( preventing a cannister explosion ) they control the gas pressure to obtain the correct air /gas mixture
try attaching a regulator to the top of the bottle , them a hose to the camping stove and your problems will be solved
