Hi there tanyajames88

your victa is a 2 stroke vc160 these units sare stated to run 25:1 fuel / oil ratio

that is 40 mils of 2 stroke for every 1.0 litre of petrol that mix

so if mixing 2 litres - 1st put in 80 mils of good quality 2 stroke oil then put in 2 litres of petrol , give good shake and fill up your mower tank

2 stroke oil that you would use for sthil chainsaw would be ok its hi quality

you could use some fuel stabilizer additive to hekp stop mix from going stale too soon
if wish but most times just mix enoyugh mix to het job done , then mix more if need it

that way mix is always fresh

I was driving my 50cc roketa bahama series scooter down,the road today and all of a sudden it boged down, like it was not getting gas and I slowed down and it dyed, after waiting a few minutes it started...


If this is a 4 stroke engine it sounds like a simple fuel delivery problem. Clogged filter, or screen or a restriction from debri in the carberetor.
If it's a 2 stroke it could be running lean and the cylinder is overheating. This may be doing damage to the cyl. walls. Don't run it until diagnosed.
A lack of proper fuel leads to lack of lubrication in 2 stroke motors, lean mix causes high heat to build and soon you have a heavily scored cyl and piston.

Stupid question I know but is it 4 strock or 2 strock oil for a victa 450 148cc


If there is a place for motor oil on the engine, its a 4 stroke, and use 10w-30. If not, use a 40:1 mixture (gas to 2-stroke oil ratio). Not a stupid question... only stupid if you didn't ask, and did the wrong thing without asking first! Hope this helps!

I have a VICTA V160 (LS) Power Torque - 2-stroke engine... I don't have the user guide... What fuel do I use? Do I add engine oil to the fuel and how much?


Use unleaded fuel. Do not add engine oil to the fuel, you must use 2 stroke oil to add to the fuel at a ratio of 25 to 1, which is 200mls of oil to 5 litres of fuel. Regards Phil

How do i tell a victa 2 stroke from a 4 stroke?


two stroke mowers will have a picture of a oil can on the fuel cap,if it doesn't it is most likely a four stroke.
four stroke mowers will have a fuel cap and a oil cap as well.

Victa 2 stroke starts OK then stops


After much mucking about, discovered that the washer on the fuel cap is missing. When the fuel cap is tightened it seals the fuel tank. Eventually the motor is starved.
It then starts and runs for progressively shorter periods.

What oil do i put in  is it a mixture of gas and oil  regular car engine oil or special oil for mowers?


If it's a 'four stroke/cycle' engine, then 10/40 or 15/40 oil, (the type you would put in your car)
is perfectly fine.
On the other hand, if it's a 2 stroke motor, you need to use the 'Gas Additive', which, simply put,, Is, the lubrication.
Normally, there are markings somewhere on, or near the fuel tank, that will indicate wether you need the 'Additive' or not.
There ya go:)

Victa 2 stroke mower will not start


It may have a blown crankcase seal. How did you check the plug for spark?
you can remove the carbi and spray 2 stroke fuel directly into the chamber and try to start it.
If it starts you have a problem with the carbi or the fuel supply.
Take out the air filter as it may be blocked and restricting the air supply.
The float in the carbi may be full of fuel due to a hole in it or the fine fuel filter in the carbi may be blocked
