The newer Ryobi models use a 50:1 ratio. That is 2.5oz of oil in 1 US gallon. Half that to make up a half-gallon mix. The slightly older Ryobis' used a 40:1 and some evern a richer 32:1 gas to oil mix. I recommend synthetic or at least a blend. Too much oil won't really hurt anything, but too little can ruin the engine.

Sounds like the cable in the upper shaft is broken. Start it without the attachments installed and see if the cable is turning.

Starting up Ryobi Petrol Strimmer


full choke on , push petrol bubble 5 times then pull starter cord., with luck it will kick in to life after a 20/30 secs put on half choke , run again for 30 secs the no ckoke.

The main problem with Ryobi products is that they flood very very easly. So the more time you try and pump petrol into the carb the more it will flood . If that happenes then choke off and switch off and then just pull starter cord for about 30 secs then switch on and it could start if not prime it again as above good luck

How do i workout the fuel mix for my plt2543y strimmer


Oil gas should be mixed in the ratio 1 to 50 or 2%
That's 20 mL in 1 litre or 3 fluid ounces per US gallon of gas.

What is the 2 stroke petrol mix for a garden strimmer, Ryobi 25cc PLT 2543 please?


hi there keithprobert

the ratio to use if using top quality 2 stroke oil is 50:1 that is 20 mills of 2 stroke oil per 1.0 litre of petrol that you mix.

but if not using top quality 2 stroke oil use ratio 25:1 that is 40 mills of 2stroke oil per 1.0 litre of petrol that you mix.

I've lost the user manual for my Ryobi 25cc RPT 2543c strimmer. Can you please advise where the dip stick is to check the oil. Can't seem to find it.


Ryobi RPT 2543c This is a 2 stroke engine, so no dipstick. You mix oil with the petrol (ratio 50:1) or 200ml of two stroke oil per litre of petrol, and that's how the engine is lubricated. Hope this helps, arvidis@btopenworld.com

Ryobi PSC 3046y3e 30 cc petrol strimmer ratios of petrol to oil


WELL IF THERE IS NO 2 STROKE OIL TANK THEN YOU MIX IT WITH THE GAS. THIS IS HOW THE ENGINE GETRS ITS LUBRICATION AND WILL BLOW UP AND SEIAZE WITHOUT IT.MOST OF THESE SMALL ENGINS RUN AR 20 TO 1. OUTBAURDS RUN AT 50 TO 1. IF YOU PUT TO LITTLE ITS NO GOOD AS MENTIONED ABOVE. IF YOU [PUT TOO MUCH IT IS NT AS BAD AS IT WILL SMOKE A BIT AND POSSIBLE FOUL THE PLUG AFTER A WHILE. I WOULD GO WITH 230 TO ONE THAT WOULD BE 20 PARTS GAS TO 1 PART OIL 20GAL GAS TO 1 GAL OIL IS THE SAME AS 5 GAL OF GAS TO 1 QUART OIL OR 2 1/2 GAL GAS TO A PINT OIL OR 1 1/4 GAL GAS TO 1/2 PINT OILM GET THE PICTURE NOW. ITS DIVISION. AFTER A WHILE OF RUNNING IF IT SMKES AND THE PLUG FOULS JUST ADD A BIT MORE GAS TO YOUR MIX AND CLEAN THE PLUS WITH AN OLD TOOTH BRUSH AND I ALWAYS MARK MY GAS CAN WITH BLACK MARKER OIL/GAS MIX 20:1 OR WHATEVER.
REGARDS, PAUL
