On a lawn mower small engine which is air cooled I highly recommend you use a 100% synthetic oil in 10w30 weight. Any major brand will be fine just make sure it is a full synthetic. On the gasoline use 87 octane regular. Higher octane fuel will provide no benefit and it a waste of money.

How do i mix my 2 stroke for a makita chainsaw how many ml of oil to a litre of fuel


Mix the fuel and oil in a suitable container that is airtight with a secure stopper to ensure the fuel mixture has a long shelf life. Keep the funnel, spout, container, etc., dry and very clean. Storing it all in a large plastic bag serves very well for this purpose.

Any quality engine oil can be used but an oil of the recommended type and viscosity will produce much better results. Purists and traditionalists still like to use vegetable oil but this has a very short useful life and dubious results. Self mixing 2-stroke oils are best and synthetic-based oils are reckoned these days to be superior.

Put fuel in the container first and then add the correct quantity of oil for the number of litres of fuel, close the container and shake with vigour for a few seconds and then transfer the fuel to the tool.

The number of ml of oil to use per litre of fuel will vary depending on the engine type, manufacture and age. The fuel/oil ratio is often marked on the fuel tank or cap, 30:1, 40:1, 50:1, etc.. 50:1 would require 20ml of oil per litre.

Some 2-stroke oil bottles have a useful measuring scale on the side...

Fuel ratio on a titan 50?


books say 50.1 ratio is best
use the correct 2 stroke oil as normal engine oil is not the best oil to use.as it dilutes too quickly and doesn't provide proper lubrication to the moving parts
A proper ratio is when you can just seek blue from the exhaust
no smoke is too lean on the oil

Oil smoke on my mantis tiller


Too much oil in the fuel mix. Look for a 2 cycle oil called Opti-2. Comes in 1 or 2 1/2 gallon mix pouches w/fuel stabilizer. One mix for all 2 cycle. It's the best and no measuring, foolproof.

Fuel requirements for a Stihl 131 Polesaw with the 4mix engine?


hi Ray

For your polesaw Stihl HT 131 with 4 mix engine you need a fuel/ oil mixture.The lubrication of the engine is realised through the fuel/ oil mixture(you need a superior quality of the oi for the mixture ).Buy it from an authorised Stihl dealer shop.Any other oil is not needed on the 4 mix engine.
