The fuel to oil ratio tells how much fuel and oil to mix for a given 2 stroke engine. It can be different depending on the recommedation from the manufacturer. NOT ALL 2 STROKE ENGINES USE THE SAME RATIO. You have to know the manufacturer recommendation for your engine.

I have a 1993 Honda 125cc was told to mix gas but these oil in crankcase do I need to mix?


You would never mix any fuel and oil for the crankcase. If it is a 2-stroke engine, the fuel and 2-stroke oil will need to be mixed before entering the cylinder. Some engines have an automatic mixing setup - those have a separate oil reservoir for 2-stroke oil, but it will usually be a plastic tank, located nowhere near the crankcase. On a "4matic" engine, it fires like a 4 stroke, but there is no crank case, and the fuel needs to be mixed like a 2 stroke. What is the vehicle you are referencing? A dirt bike or street bike? It seems the CR125 and NR125 are both 2 stroke engines, so somehow the fuel needs to be mixed with 2-stroke oil. Can you take a picture of the crankcase oil cap?

What is the fuel and oil mix ratio


Depends on what the tool motor calls for premix wise.
Premis oil comes in premeasured container based on a 2.5 g or 5gal mix of gasoline to one small container of pre-mix oil.

Should I use 2 stroke oil or synthetic 2 stroke oil


Synthetic oils claim to extend the shelf life of mixed fuel. If you are going to use the fuel within 30 days of mixing use regular 2 stroke oil.

Is a Victa Sunbeam 160 Special a 2 stroke or 4 stroke? Wondering what additive to use with fuel. Thanks so much for your help.


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

Want to no if it takes petrol on its own when fueling or 2 stroke oil added to it aswell


i guess your asking if its a 2 stroke or a 4 stroke right ?
2 stroke engines dont have an oil filler cap , just a fuel filling point, the fuel used in a 2 stroke is just normal unleaded (aus) but you mix 2 stroke oil in the fuel before filling (about 50/1) or whatever it recomends.
4 stroke uses the same fuel but you dont mix the oil with the fuel , it has its own filler point for oil , however you must use a 4 stroke oil with these .
hope this is what you were after.

Do i have to mix 2 stroke oil on the gas for the 4 stroke bikes or just add regular gas on the tank? if is what is the scale for the mix?


DO NOT mix oil in the gas on your four stroke engine. You will foul the spark plug(s), build up deposits on the valves and head, and make a smokey, smelly mess. A two stroke engine uses the fuel/oil mix to lubricate the engine before being used as fuel. A four stroke engine has a separate lubrication system and does not normally burn any oil. As the name implies, a two stroke engine works in two strokes. The first stroke is downward, where the fuel/oil mix and air are drawn into the cylinder. The momentum from the crankshaft counterbalance or force from the other cylinder(s) drive the piston back up compressing the mix, and the spark plug sparks at or slightly before the top of the stroke. The rapid combustion of the fuel/oil/air mix drives the piston down, which is the power stroke, and then the cycle starts all over again. A four stroke engine has an intake stroke down taking in the fuel/air mix, a compression stroke up, a power stroke down as the fuel/air mix is ignited at or before the top of the stroke, and a exhaust stroke up before starting all over again. A four stroke is much cleaner and more reliable than a two stroke, but it is heavier and has less torque. A two stroke engine is much lighter and has more torque, but takes more maintenance.
