How long did it run you have probely melted the cylinder and rings the 2cycle is the only oil the moter gets w / o it it will shortly melt down.If it will still turn over (crank with rope) you mmight have a chance take the apark plug out and pore some straight mix in cylinder and let set for a day then make sure to drain all oil and se it might run for awhile but will not have the power it had
If it will still turn over you need a minum of new rings maybe the cylinder honed and oversied rings to take up the gap
It can be saved and probley for less than a new one but make sure you get a firm price from oneyone working on it first shop charges in some shops quickely add up to more then it cost to replace
good luck

Backpack gas blower


Monching, You will have to hope there is not too much damage done already from running straight Gas. Empty all straight gas from blowers tank and refill with proper minimum 50:1 gas oil mix. Start blower and run on 1/2 throttle for a few minutes to be sure its going to be OK. If seized, you will have to try and unseize and if lucky it may run if not too much damage internally. You should run a heavier oil to gas mix 32 or 40:1 in an engine that's been seized. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

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

Do you run straight gas through it


No, gas chain saws use a 2 cycle oil gas mix, it should say on the chain saw fill or on a bottle of 2 cycle oil the mix or ratio of oil to gas mix.

I have a PB 201 leaf blower...I can't find my manual. Do I need to add oil to the gas before use? Thanks!


YES YES YES !!!

You must make a 50 to 1 ratio of gasoline to 2 cycle oil. I recommend to purchase 2 cycle oil that has a fuel stabilizer in it. This will keep your fuel fresh for several months instead of just weeks.

50 to 1 is 2.6 ounces of 2 cycle oil to 1 gallon of gasoline (US)

Keep your mixed fuel in a well marked gasoline container and use it only for your 2 cycle equipment.

Good luck!

Engine suddenly quit and will not restart or fire.


Hello. Begin by changing your air filter. If the air filter is dirty or has too much oil in it the trimmer will not start. Next, change the spark plug. Then check the fuel filter inside of the tank to be sure it is not clogged.

Finally, I do have a customer now and then who accidentally puts in the wrong fuel [for instance straight gas instead of the gas and oil mix required]. If this is a possibility, drain the tank and start over with a fresh gallon of gas and a fresh 2 cycle oil mix. Joe

Need to know gas mixture


Yours is not a current model and I did not find a manual. The following is an excerpt from a 26cc MightyLite Blower/Vac UT08550/UT08951 "Operator's Manual":
This product is powered by a 2-cycle engine and requires pre-mixing gasoline and 2-cycle lubricant. Pre-mix unleaded gasoline and 2-cycle engine lubricant in a clean 1 gallon container approved for gasoline.
Recommended fuel: This engine is certified to operate on unleaded gasoline intended for automotive use.
Mix Homelite Premium Exact Mix lubricant with gasoline according to the instructions on the package. If Premium Exact Mix lubricant is not available, use a high quality synthetic 2-cycle engine lubricant, mixed at 2.6 oz. per gallon (US).
Do not use automotive lubricant or 2-cycle outboard lubricant.
NOTE: Premium Exact Mix fuel mix will stay fresh up to 30 days. DO NOT mix quantities larger than usable in a 30 day period.
PREMIUM EXACT MIX (50:1)
GasolineLubricant
1 gallon (US) 2.6 oz.
1 Liter 20 cc (20 ml)

If properly adjusted your blower will operate fine on 50:1 regardles of what the manual reads. HTH

Does 2 cycle oil get mixed with gas on McCulloch chainsaw or just put gas in?


Fuel/Oil Mixture
  1. Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the OIL supplier's recommended ratio. Today I use Stihl 2 cycle oil mixed @ 50:1 in a Pioneer that I purchased new in 1980. There are no gouges or scratches on the piston or cylinder and I have no carbon build up on the piston top. The manual (on stone tablets) recommends 24:1. Over the years the mixture has leaned from 24:1 (Saw Recommendation) to 28:1 (Lawn boy mower recommendation) to 32:1 (Oil provider 8oz/2gal - used for many years) and finally the last 5 (±) years 50:1 (Stihl 2.6oz/1gal)
  2. Any fuel containing ethanol is not good with chainsaws. Mix what you expect to use within a few months. Anything over 6 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine. HTH
