Gas and oil mixed in 4 cycle backpack leaf blower

I mixed 2 cycle oil in my gas for my 4 cycle try bilt backpack leaf blower. It worked fine but now I am having trouble starting it. Should I drain the gas and put fresh gas in? Or is there something else I need to do before trying to start it again?

If it is a 4 cycle blower, you do not mix oil with the fuel....It takes straight Gas. there is an oil cap to put engine oil in crankcase, this only usually takes 2,3,4 oz. of oil. Sounds like your Spark Plug probably fouled out from having oil mixed in your gas. I would recomend changing your Spark Plug and put some Fresh GAS only in the blower, dump the old stuff out !!! You should be on your way Blowing in No Time !

Backpack gas blower


Monching, You will have to hope there is not too much damage done already from running straight Gas. Empty all straight gas from blowers tank and refill with proper minimum 50:1 gas oil mix. Start blower and run on 1/2 throttle for a few minutes to be sure its going to be OK. If seized, you will have to try and unseize and if lucky it may run if not too much damage internally. You should run a heavier oil to gas mix 32 or 40:1 in an engine that's been seized. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

What is the oil mix for 2 gallons of gas for a 2 cycle gas leaf blower


Only use 50 to 1 as that is what is specified.

To get 50 to one ratio with the 6.4 oz bottle of 2 stroke oil just add 2 1/2 U.S.. gallons and that will be 50 to 1 ratio so you will have the correct ratio .

If this is a 2-cycle engine, Ryboi are 50:1 check age of gas. Cannot be more than 30 days old. Make sure to use fresh gas w/synthetic 2-cycle oil @ 50:1 ratio (1 gal.) Gas to 2.5 oz. Oil). Do not use old or stale oil/gas mixture. Always use the proper oil/gas mix. If you do not, your engine will suffer rapid, permanent damage.

I do not know the proper gas-oil mix for a sears craftsman backpack 2 cycle leaf blower; i am using 1 gallon of gas; how much of the oil do i put into it? thanks


Craftsman engines typicallty run a 40:1 fuel ratio mix. That is 3.2oz./gal. I suggest synthetic oil It helps the engine to run cooler with less friction/stress. If you make the mix a little richer; say 3.5 to 4 oz./gall. it will assist the engine if it is tuned to the "lean" side (that is with more air/less fuel). The extra oil will not hurt or foul your spark plug.

What type and grade of oil is required. I have lost my manual and do not remember what oil is required. Troy model TB4SC gas blower.


Any 2 cycle oil will work. Then mix 1 gallon of gas to 1 container of 2 cycle engine, shake well and pour into your blower.

Need to know gas mixture


Yours is not a current model and I did not find a manual. The following is an excerpt from a 26cc MightyLite Blower/Vac UT08550/UT08951 "Operator's Manual":
This product is powered by a 2-cycle engine and requires pre-mixing gasoline and 2-cycle lubricant. Pre-mix unleaded gasoline and 2-cycle engine lubricant in a clean 1 gallon container approved for gasoline.
Recommended fuel: This engine is certified to operate on unleaded gasoline intended for automotive use.
Mix Homelite Premium Exact Mix lubricant with gasoline according to the instructions on the package. If Premium Exact Mix lubricant is not available, use a high quality synthetic 2-cycle engine lubricant, mixed at 2.6 oz. per gallon (US).
Do not use automotive lubricant or 2-cycle outboard lubricant.
NOTE: Premium Exact Mix fuel mix will stay fresh up to 30 days. DO NOT mix quantities larger than usable in a 30 day period.
PREMIUM EXACT MIX (50:1)
GasolineLubricant
1 gallon (US) 2.6 oz.
1 Liter 20 cc (20 ml)

If properly adjusted your blower will operate fine on 50:1 regardles of what the manual reads. HTH
