Hi,
Check for a crankcase with oil in it on the motor...if you have oil in the motor already then you do not need to mix it in the gas...
I am very sure that you will find this motor does not need the gas mixed...
Run straight gas... usually it is good to run Prem in small motors..

Hi Maryanne:
Most lawnmowers have 4 cycle engines and run on straight gas.
If there is an oil sump or a dipstick to check oil level, you'll just use straight gas.
If it's a 2 cycle machine, like a weed eater, the "modern" units typically use 50:1 ratio.

The manual is listed at Sears parts for $33.00
I don't blame you for not buying it.
Engine appears to be a vertical shaft lawnmower engine.
Can you find any identification on the engine as to what brand it is.
If I had to guess I would error in favor of more oil. It will smoke more but there is less risk of damaging the engine.
Some per mixes are 50/1 and are claimed to be safe.

What is the problem when my 27cc craftsman weed wacker starts but doesnt stay running


check age of gas. Cannot be more than 30 days old.
Make sure to use fresh gas w/synthetic 2-cycle oil @ 40:1 ratio (1 gal.) Gas to 3.2 oz. Oil). Do not use old or stale oil/gas mixture. Always use the proper oil/gas mix. If you do not, your engine will suffer rapid, permanent damage.May need to clean or replace carburetor.

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.

Troy built 27cc string trimmer Model TB21 EC. What is the gas oil mix ratio?


4 cycle engines do not run on mixed fuel. Run on straight fuel. They have a spot to put oil in just like a lawn mover, and should be changed regularly. @ stroke engines run on mixed fuel.

How much gas to mix the oil in?


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.
