First check that your Mantis needs an oil/gas mixture, most of the newer Mantis tillers have four-stroke motors meaning they have oil in the crankcase and use straight gas. If your Mantis needs oil mixed in the gas use a 50:1 ratio. That's usually 2.6 ounces of two-cycle oil (it's sold in bottles that size) to one gallon of gas but read the oil bottle to get the proper mix ratio.

Have a poulan wild thing and the oil bar compartment has gas in it


I would drain the oil and gas or whatever is in it. I would also drain the 2 cycle mix from the gas tank and start with a fresh gas and oil mix and fresh bar oil. The mix for the Poulan Wildthing is a 40:1 mix.

You are definitely going to smell gas when using any chain saw.

Do I mix the oil and gas together and pour it in the gas tank or do I pour the gas in the tank and the waverunner mix's the oil and gas together?


Mix the oil and gas together first.
Or you can add some gas into tank, then add some oil, then add more gas, then bit more oil ... so oil-gas mixture is uniform.

What kind of gas


Regular unleaded gas mixed with 2 cycle oil. (You need to check your model for mixture ratio but 30:1 (thirty parts gas to one part oil mix) is usually a good place to start) You can find mixing instructions on the back of the 2 cycle oil container

I have a techumseh snow blower 5.5 engine. I need to know what type of fuel it needs. It says on the outside something about a 50:1 oil gas mix and lists some types of oils. Where can I get these oils,...


go to your hardware store and ask for some 2 cycle 50:1 oil, mix that with a gallon of gas and you're good to go. Before you mix, make sure that you read the oil container for it's recommendations! You can purchase a small container of oil that is all measured for 1 gallon of gas

Need to know oil to gas mix ratio for Craftsman 32cc, 360 cfm, 170 mph blower vac? Can someone provide ratio?


40:1 is the standard mix. Go buy one of the little containers ( 3.2 ounces) of 2-cycle oil and mix it with a gallon of gas in an approved container (like a gas can). How you mix it is, pour some gas in the container...about 1/4 of the gallon, then pour in the oil, mix well, by shaking the can then add the remaining gasoline and PRESTO, you have a 40:1 mix!

My B&S Yard Machine shoots out white smoke it also leaks out oil and gas mixed


If this is a 4 cycle mower (seperate places for gas and oil) and you are using a oil and gas mix as I am reading from your post that is your problem. When you use a gas&oil mix in a 4 cycle you get smoke and if fouls your spark plug. Also be more specific where the oil and gas mixed is leaking from. I SUGGEST THAT YOU DRAIN OUT THE GAS&OIL MIX AND CLEAN THE SPARK PLUG OR REPLACE AND FILL WITH STRAIGHT GAS AND SEE HOW IT RUNS.

Good luck

I dont have the manual and Im not sure what ype of oil I should put on this chain saw. On the left The nob sais oil (which kind?) and on the right side it sais oil/gas mix (which kind?) what do i put on...


The Left knob needs chain oil. Available in most hardware stores. The right is gas mixed with 2 stroke motor oil. Usually a 50:1 mix. Ie. 50 parts gas to 1 part oil. 2 stroke oil comes with a built in measuring tool and directions printed on the bottle.
