Some of the new machines have a 50:1 Mix ratio, but all of the older ones I've seen are 40:1 which is 3.2 oz oil/Gallon gas. The John Deere machines appear to be similar to the Homelites, just different brand names on them.

I have a John Deere riding lawn mower model # 406777, gas was put in the oil tank by accident. What do I do?


The solution is not too difficult here, but may be a little messy if you are not careful. You need to drain the oil/gas mixture into a container. CAUTION- the gas in the oil acts as a thinner and the mix will flow out very quickly so be ready to catch it in a container. Change the oil filter and refill with oil like normal oil change. Remove spark plug and rotate engine several times, this is done because the fuel in the oil washes the oil out of critical locations within the engine and rotating several times to put oil back on those critical surfaces. Reinsert plug and you are ready to start it up.

I hope this help you, if it really does please rate four thumbs up.

Never owned a 2cycle product and some one gave me a John Deere t105c trimmer but dont have an owners manual and dont want to pay $20 -$40 for one just to find out how to fill with gas/oil mixture. Can you...

You need two-cycle motor oil, do not use regular motor oil. Almost all two-cycle motors are designed to run on a 50 to 1 mixture of gas and oil. Look for two-cycle motor oil at any store that carries two-cycle tools like chain saws, line trimmers, etc. A good bet is Lowe's or The Home Depot. If you get the 2.6 oz bottle you have to add that to one gallon of gas to get a 50:1 mixture. Always read the oil bottle for correct mixing amounts and mix the oil with the gas in a separate container then put it in your trimmer.

40:1 fuel to oil should work fine if you use a modern synthetic saw oil available from home centers, hardware stores, and saw dealers. Be sure to premix in it's own container and to shake the container thoroughly each time just before filling the tank to prevent oil starvation. Make sure the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler are not plugged. Inspect the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Hope this helps!

I have a John Deere hand held blower. I can't get

Your adjustments to the carburetor may make it worse.
Plus if the fuel mixture is over 30 old, I would replace it.
Manufacturers have told us this year any gas over 30 days old is considered bad gas and needs to be replaced. I would try some fresh gas(from the station) and some new 2 cycle oil at 40:1 Ratio(3.2 ozs 2 cycle oil to 1 gal of gas).
Good day.
