Same question but for a Toro 3690

the oil used is 2 stroke oil---any brand ( not engine oil) as it has special additives that make the oil cling to the parts with out blocking the carby jets
next the ratio is normally etched on the fuel cap as 20:1 or the like
fuel can be the lower octane rating fuel but not e-mix fuels
a call to a toro service center or local mower shop will tell you what the ratio is ( could be 50:1 for a 25cc engine)
From experience I would say about 35:1 for a start and watch the oil smoke from the exhaust at rpms
no smoke seen is too light on the oil and smoky is too much oil
the correct ratio will be when you can just see smoke at rpms

Toro troubleshooting

Use a funnel and tip out all the gas oil mixture. Then replace with a cup of straight gas. This should start and clear out the mix.
Run out until it stops and refill with correct gas oil Usually 8-1- see the label on the oil bottle.

I got a toro 22inch recyler lawn mower i change the gas and the plug pull offt he caubauter and it was clean damn thing wont stayed started and wen it dies i have to wait ten minutes ti get it going again...

First, try taking the gas cap off and see if will continue to run. If it does, the vent hole in the cap is clogged. If it does not, then you will most likely need to "rebuild" the carburetor. See if you can get me the engine model number that is posted on the engine.

Does the recycler use gas or a gas oil mixture

Your recycler mower is either gas or electric (as you may know). The gas models use straight gasoline. You do not mix oil with the fuel.

Need the engine model number for toro mower model 2006,serial 270001124

I too was looking for the engine model number and serial number for my Toro mower to submit a claim for a class action suit. I could only find the "Mower" model and serial number. I found a guide to locate the engine information in the "Engine Service Manual" for my mower.To get the "Engine Service Manual", I went to Toro's website and entered the "Mower" Model # and Serial Number. That brought me to a speific page for my mower with several manuals listed, including he "Engine Service Manual" which could be downloaded for free. The information for locating the Engine Model and Serial Number was found on the first page of the Preface. Here is a sample link for my mower Engine Manual

Look for an oil dipstick on the mower's deck. If there is no dipstick, it takes mixed gas.
