You do not mix gas in a 4 cycle engine. You have to mix gas and oil for a 2 cycle engine, such as in a weed whacker, chainsaw, or leaf blower. I do not know of any 2 cycle Poulan mowers (or any other brands for that matter). Unleaded gas is all you can buy in the United States and all current mowers will run on it, although they really don't like that new ethanol additive. If your mower is new then it should have come with an owner's manual which will explain what to do, as well. Hope this answers your question.

What kind of gas to used on lawn mower 55 158 cc craftman


Ori Hi, most lawnmowers use regular unleaded petrol now. If you have somewhere that oil goes into your mower then it will be normal unleaded but if on the fuel cap it has an oil can picture you need to mix it with two stroke oil.

What kind of oil do i use to mix with gas for my Poulan gas trimmer. Can i use WD30 motor oil or does it have to specifically say its for 2stroke engines? the ratio on the trimmer says 40:1 so i assume...


DO NOT USE MOTOR OIL!!!

There is a special 2-stroke engine oil mix that you can purchase at various stores that have outdoor equipment or you can also find mix at Walmart. There are instructions for proper mixing on the bottle.

Remember not to put 2-stroke mixed fuel in your lawn mower unless it is also 2-stroke (rare). And the converse is also true, do not put your 4-stroke lawn mower fuel in your 2-stroke weed eater.

If this is really helpful, please rate.

What type of fuel do I use in my push Poulan Pro lawn mower, reg. unleaded gas or mixture. I have been using mixture and mower is running sluggish. Want to know if I am using the right fuel.


If your mower is 2 cycle than there is a mixture, if it is 4cycle than there is no mix. Call your local repair shop and give them model number and they can assist you or call the place where you purchased the unit.. Good Luck....

The term "Unleaded gas only" refers to the type of gasoline to be used. You would use "Unleaded gasoline" instead of "Leaded gasoline". Yes, you will mix oil with the gas normally at a ration of 50 to 1. (1 pint of oil to 6 gallons of "Unleaded Gasoline"). If you do not put oil into your gasoline, you will burn your engine up due to lack of oil. I hope this helped, Good Luck Please rate me, Thanks

I just bought a Weed Eater 22" gas push mower. Do I mix oil with the gas to run, as I do not see an oil input? p.s. I purchased this at a yard sale.


If it has a dipstick or plug to check the oil in the engine you do NOT mix gas and oil.
Use regular unleaded gas only and use 30 weight detergent oil in the engine crankcase if it is low.

when refueling.
HELPFUL TIP
To obtain the correct oilmix
ratio, pour 3.2 ounces of
2--cycle synthetic oil into
one gallon of fresh gas.
This engine is certified to operate on unleaded
gasoline. Before operation, gasoline must be
mixed with a good quality synthetic 2-cycle
air-cooled engine oil designed to be mixed at a
ratio of 40:1. Poulan/Weed Eater brand
synthetic oil is recommended.Mix gasoline and
oil at a ratio of 40:1. A 40:1 ratio is obtained by
mixing 3.2 ounces (95ml) of oil with 1 gallon (4
liters) of unleaded gasoline. DO NOT USE
automotive oil or marine oil.
