We aren't mind readers, we have absolutely no idea what you have!!!

On most small garden items like trimmers and chainsaws, yes. On mowers with 4 stroke engines, no! Does it have valves? Valves mean 4 stroke, no oil, No valves means 2 stoke, so oil mix.

Google

make model manual

or

make model gas oil mix

Old ones are 20 or 25 to 1, modern are 40 to 50 to 1.

Putting my yard king 8/27 snowblower away for the summer. Should I remove the gas and oil. If yes, how?


I do not live up north or where there is so much snow, but I think you should drain the gas and oil from your machine.
Do you still have your owner's manual? Check it for directions.

I didn't realize that my Ariens 522 2 cycle snowblower is a oil/gas mix. I filled my tank full with just gas and no oil. Can i just add in oil and manually mix it?


Yes, you can. I thought it was a chain saw, but you can shake a snowblower :>) Put the oil in stir vigorously with a spoon.

I changed the category.

What oil to use for a yardworks gas mower 060-1648, 060-1649, 060-1658


Hi , There's two different types of mower oil, There's the oil for the sump (4 stroke mowers ONLY) Ask at the local lawn mower repair store for the oil type and the 2 stroke grade, it's just two stroke oil you add to the gas (2 stroke mowers ONLY) If you own a 2 stroke mower then yes you actually add the oil to the gas before you put it in the gas tank (25 to 1 ratio) but If you own a 4 stroke mower then NO you DON'T put the oil in the gas tank. There is (two) capes, 1 for the gas and the 2nd cap is there somewhere for the oil.... Have a look at the link below... CHEERS..

Problem with Lawn Trimmers & Edgers I put a


Yes, this should not hurt it, just clean the plug and crank until it fires up, it will smoke until the oil has gone. Are you sure it is a four stroke machine?? as most are two strokes and do require a fuel/oil mix.

Homelite broom help I put way too much oil in now it's smoking!


i agree finding the ratio is no as easy as it should be. yes. drain the tank. don't use the old gas somewhere else. use fresh gas & mix ratio in separate gas can or container. use a bit of ether/starting fluid into the air-filter inlet opening help fire it up. a new plug is fairly low cost and easy and that might also be needed after the oil bath and 3 years.
