Hi,
Any high quality 30 weight motor oil will work...it is better to use a straight weight oil instead of a mulitviscosity like a 10w-30 oil...

My Lawn mower seems to be produced by ALKO, but has the Briggs and Stratton emblem also. It is the 40b model and having just inherited it, I am trying to find out if I put just petrol in or whether I need...


Hi scottcoles5...
The easy way to find out if the motor is 2 or 4 cycle is to check to see if the engine has oil in the crankcase...if it does it is a 4 cycle and you will NOT have to mix oil with your gas. 2 cycle engines do NOT have an oil in the crancase and depend on the oil you mix with your gasoline.
You can also check the color of the gasoline in the tank, most 2 cycle oils contain a colorant to color the gas to let you know there is oil in the gas...

2 or 4 cycle oil for a Ranch King 6.0 lawn mower? What kind or type of oil should use?


If you mean oil for the crankcase use need 4 cycle oil Ususally 30 weight and don't over fill Most small engine do not even take a quart only about 20 oz.

If you mean to mix with gas ( I doubt this) but then you need 2 cycle oil depending on the mixture usually about 3 oz to a gallon of gas (3.2 oz / gal = 40:1 ratio, 2.5 oz/ =50:1)

Does a yamaha 2003 atv have four stroke engine?


Do you mix oil into the gas?? Is there a place to check the oil (a dip stick). Is there a special place to put 2 cycle oil for a self mixer?

If you don't mix the gas with oil and there is no special place to put 2 cycle oil, you have a 4 cycle engine.

If there is a place on the side to check the oil level, you have a 4 cycle engine.

Next question will be ... how do I check the transmission oil? If you have a 4 cycle engine, the engine oil is also the transmission oil ... rule of thumb.

You are showing a picture of a motorcycle and asking a question about a ATV, but not mentioning a model number. I don't think Yamaha is currently making a 2 stroke engine for their ATV's (there are several sizes - not including assorted models for sale around the world ... and I don't know where you are writing from (and please don't say).

Maybe the best thing for you to do is call the Yamaha dealer on Monday morning and tell them the model you have and ask the question 2 stroke or 4 stroke. There will be no more guessing on your part then.

Make sense?

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com
