Synthetic 2 Cycle Oil ?
My new (factory recon) Poulan weed eater has a 2 cycle engine.
The manual says:
This engine is certified to operate on unleaded gasoline. Before operation, gasoline must be mixed with a good quality synthetic 2 cycle air cooled engine oil designed to be mixed at a ratio of 40:1. Poulan/Weed Eater brand synthetic oil is recommended.
Does this mean I should only use synthetic 2 cycle oil?
And another question while I'm here:
I mix only 1/2 gallon of fuel at a time.
I don't use enough 2 cycle fuel mix to bother making more.
I'm supposed to mix 3.2 ounces of oil per gallon.
It's gonna be hard to measure out 1.6 ounces of oil.
How close to I have to be. How much Stabil should be added.
My chainsaw uses a 50:1 mix.
Is there any sort of happy medium in there so
that I only need to keep one jug of fuel mix around.
