How to dilute gasoline with oil for grass trimmer instruction with a description
To cut the grass in the country house or in the field you will need gasoline grass trimmers. They run on gasoline, unlike their electric counterparts. How to dilute gasoline with oil for trimmers, petrol and brush cutters, not many masters know. Step-by-step instructions on how to prepare a fuel mixture in a grass trimmer will be useful not only for beginners, but also for experts who may be fueling chainsaws incorrectly.
Grass trimmers and lawnmowers are powered by two-stroke engines, which have a simplified design. Rarely, but there are trimmer models with 4-stroke motors that run on pure gasoline. Power units of two-stroke type do not have a compartment for pouring engine oil (oil sump), due to which the weight of the tool and reduce their cost. If the rotating parts of the motor are not lubricated, they will end up failing quickly. To prevent this, the grass trimmer is not filled with pure gasoline, but with a mixture of oil. What oil to dilute with gasoline for grass trimmer?
To begin with, let’s remember or find out what types of oils by chemical composition are available:
- Mineral fluids. designed for low-power, air-cooled machinery. This is the cheapest type of engine lubricant
- Semi-synthetics. they are used for equipment that has air and water cooling
- Synthetic. suitable for all types of engines with different types of cooling. They do not require frequent changes, and this type of lubricant is several times more expensive than mineral and semi-synthetic
From the above it follows that the grass trimmer oil with any composition. mineral, synthetic and semi-synthetic. Oils with different chemical compositions differ in price, so rely on the recommendations of the tool manufacturer when buying. The instruction manual contains recommended information on what types of oil are best to use. If it is a standard TC-W3, then it is not so important what composition the substance should have. In this case, you can dilute mineral, semi-synthetic and synthetic with gasoline.
This is interesting! The main thing when choosing oil do not get caught up in a fake, since today you can often find different types of lubricating compositions for two-stroke engines, which consist mainly of low-quality petroleum products.
The mix of gasoline and oil you select for your brushcutter must meet the necessary requirements, as specified in the manual. It is important to note that Russian producers often label their products differently, not as it is in the American or Japanese classification. Russian producers of lubricants, as a rule, put a 2T marking on all oils designed for two-stroke engines. It is not rare to find oil cans marked “self mix” or “pre mix” on store shelves. In the first case, this means that the oil does not require any additional manipulation, just pour the gasoline and oil into the same container, and the mixing will occur without human intervention. In the second case, correspondingly, one should shake or stir the mixture to bring it to the desired consistency.
As you can see, the existence of different classifications of lubricants suggests that the use of oils in two-stroke engines is necessary. This is due to the fact that the fuel mixture without lubricant will quite quickly disable the ICE, which will not be lubricated properly. Gasoline and oil form the necessary environment that reduces detonation, removes excess debris (waste products from gasoline combustion), and protects the inside of the engine from wear.
It is important to remember that using oil of the wrong classification can cause a breakdown or clog the engine. Of course, it can be repaired, but in order to prevent possible breakdowns, and to minimize their probability, it will be better to study the instruction manual, learn the volume of the two-stroke engine installed on the brushcutter, and use only gasoline and oil that will suit all the parameters of this model.
Quite often, in the recommendations section (and sometimes on the label), the manufacturer indicates the partner companies whose gasoline and oil it recommends to fill their models. Most often, the fuel and lubricant recommended by the manufacturer will suit the grass trimmer best.
First of all, you should immediately exclude all oils of unknown (garage, basement) origin from the list of actively used lubricants. Usually it is not easy to dilute such oils because of their unclear base, composition. As a rule, the labels of non-brand producers are not replete with information, covering only general information, without specifying. It is highly discouraged to dilute and dilute oils such as AC-10 and ACZp-10. The origin of these lubricants is usually quite obscure, so it’s better to prefer the trusted brands that thousands of people across the country use every day.
A distinctive feature of all oils for two-stroke engines is the fact that manufacturers paint them in a color that contrasts with gasoline. The fluid is semi-transparent, viscous in consistency, slightly yellowish, but not thick. Usually we are talking about three colors. red, green and blue.
Do not forget that the color scheme has no effect on the classification (as it is often the case with antifreeze).
In no case can you use oils from the line, not designed for grass trimmer. It can extremely negatively influence the power unit operation, cause increased fuel consumption, soot on spark plugs and a number of other problems which will have to be detected and eliminated. It should be noted that if the fact of using oil that is not included in the tolerance is established, the seller has every right to remove the machine from the warranty. This means that you will have to replace the defective parts at your own expense, and no exceptions will not help here.
If the fluid you have purchased does not have the declared qualities (for example, too liquid), you should never mix it with gasoline. The best way is to return the oil to the store, explaining the reason.
Guide For Mixing 2 Stroke Fuel For 52cc Petrol Brush Cutter, Grass Line Trimmer
Lawn mowers. a fairly common technique for dealing with weeds on suburban plots, in the household, road and communal services. These devices have two other names. grass trimmer and lawn mower. The difference between these machines is in their engines. The more expensive ones have four-stroke engines, all the rest have two-stroke engines. Of course, the latter are the most popular among the population, as they are simpler in design, and lighter in weight, and much cheaper than their four-stroke competitors. However, two-stroke models are inconvenient because the fuel mixture for them has to be prepared manually, maintaining a strict dosage between gasoline and oil. In four-stroke counterparts, mixing of these components is automatic, it is only necessary to fill the gas tank and oil tank with the appropriate substances. Let’s consider the question of the correctness of refueling exactly two-stroke brushcutter, because it depends on this, how effective and long will work such a unit.
Grass trimmer oil: ratio of gasoline, two-stroke engines, proportion, how to dilute
Grass trimmer, or lawnmower. a tool that is indispensable in the household. In this case, its reliability, efficiency and long life depends on many factors. For example, the quality of fuel. This means that you need to choose the right oil for the grass trimmer, observe the proportions when adding it to gasoline and the rules of filling the device.
What oil to choose
For effective grass trimmer work it is necessary to choose oil for two-stroke engines. This is due to the lack of an oil sump in such a device. Depending on the chemical composition of the oil, the following classification is distinguished:
- mineral. based on petroleum distillate, suitable for low-power machinery and with air type cooling, but requires frequent changes and can only be used in good weather in the warm season;
- semi-synthetic. suitable for garden equipment with air and liquid type of cooling;
- Synthetic. based on esters, they do not need frequent changes and can be used at any time of year.
Oil for 2-stroke engines is characterized by good solubility and full combustion feature. For the grass trimmer, it is recommended to use a lubricant that is suitable for devices with an air-cooled system. Most often the packaging indicates that the oil is intended for garden equipment and is labeled TA, TV or TC. And the latter is the most preferred.
Often manufacturers of gasoline scythes produce a suitable oil, so you can make the choice easier if you pick up a liquid of the appropriate brand.
What kind of gasoline to use
Gasoline for grass trimmer should be chosen from unleaded 92 or 95 cycle number. As practice shows, gasoline AI-80 can cause damage to the device that is doubtful economy.
Fuel must be fresh, that is, after purchase it can be stored for no more than 60 days.

Other factors affect the quality of fuel, such as the use of a special lubricant for lawnmowers and diluting it in a separate container. It is also recommended to use special canisters designed for storing gasoline.
How to dilute gasoline with oil for grass trimmer
Dilute gasoline for grass trimmer must be in the correct proportion. Not enough oil leads to poor lubrication of the machine and excessive wear and tear.
The correct ratio can be found in the trimmer’s instruction manual. Most often it is 1:25, 1:40, 1:50. To obtain these proportions, you need to add 40 ml, 25 ml and 20 ml of oil to 1 liter of gasoline, respectively.
Do not dilute petrol and lubricant directly in the fuel tank, moreover, the proportion of oil and petrol must be strictly observed. If you ignore this rule, the operation of the grass trimmer engine can be unstable, which will cause it to fail quickly.
It is not recommended to use plastic bottles or canisters for this purpose. This is due to the fact that gasoline tends to dissolve plastic, which means that some of the plastic can get into the fuel tank, which can lead to carburetor failure. Although there are special plastic canisters marked “flame”.
- oil suitable for two-stroke engines with air cooling system;
- canister, preferably metal;
- a tank for mixing, also preferably metal;
Make a mixture of gasoline and oil as follows
- Pour 1 liter of gasoline into a container, add half of the required portion of oil. Stir thoroughly, and do so with extreme caution, away from sources of open flame.
- Add the rest of the oil to the gasoline for the grass trimmer and mix thoroughly again. Fuel can now be poured into the fuel tank of the grass trimmer.
The mixture can be stored for no more than three months, so it is better to dilute the gasoline in such quantity that it is enough for several uses.
Only high-quality oil can be used for dilution, and it is recommended to buy it only in proven stores, such as in specialized hypermarkets.
How and how much to refuel
Filling the fuel tank of the grass trimmer is easy. To do this, place the tank in such a way that the cap is on top. Amount of fuel depends on grass trimmer model. This information is given in the manual and a note is also found on the tank itself.
It is strictly forbidden to overfill the tank.
This can cause fuel to overflow into the intake manifold and fuel filter, which can cause engine damage or fuel ignition.
Follow the safety precautions when filling the grass trimmer:
What Happens When You Run Straight, Unmixed Gas in a 2-Stroke, 2-Cycle Engine
- try to pour the liquid so that it does not spill, you can use a watering can for this purpose;
- If gasoline is still spilled, it must immediately be wiped off;
- start the grass trimmer after the fuel container has been put away in a safe and secure place, better at a distance of more than 10 meters;
- In the case of a long break between operations, the remaining fuel must be drained.
The right proportion and observance of the mixing and fueling technology will help extend the life of the grass trimmer. It is recommended to choose only a quality product of the respective brand.
Oil for brushcutters. how to choose, in what proportions to dilute
Many of you have in the household petrol tools, for example, in a private home can not do without a chainsaw. You know, making firewood for the winter comes in handy during construction and repair, and in general, it is a very necessary tool. If the country house also has a decent-sized plot, you just need a grass trimmer or lawnmower to fight the grass, which also run on gasoline.
Of course, you can buy them electrically, but not everyone likes to pull a 30-meter extension cord to mow the area overgrown with grass up to the knee. That’s why most people prefer to work with gasoline-powered tools. As you know, you have to add a special oil for two-stroke engines to the petrol. Here we will talk about it, because it’s a very important aspect, if you don’t add oil and add it in wrong proportions, your engine will crack up very fast and you will have to go to a service center. To avoid all these troubles, you should add only quality oil in right proportions.
The most popular for chainsaws, brushcutters and trimmers are the products of the well-known STIHL company. It is sold in 2 packages. 1 liter and 100 ml. For those who work a lot, fit a liter bottle, and “once to saw” is quite enough a small bottle. A 1 liter container costs 250, and a 10 ml container costs 60. If you take the big one, the savings are obvious.
Add the oil to the petrol at a ratio of 1:50, which means you add 100 ml for every 5 liters of petrol. As you can see, a small bottle is perfect for getting 5 liters of gasoline mixture for your chain saw or grass trimmer. On the big bottle there are special marks on the side, by which you can determine how much oil you have poured out of the bottle. If you bought a large 1 liter bottle, then buy a 20ml syringe at the drugstore as well. Very handy. 1 syringe of oil for 1 liter of gasoline.
We advise you to use STIHL brand oil for your machines: it is ideal because it has been tested on STIHL power tools. Note that Stihl has its own brands, such as VIKING (popular models of gasoline trimmers). Use Stihl oil for them as well and you won’t have any problems at all.
If you’ve put more gasoline mixture than you can use up, it is best to store the remainder in a metal canister or in a glass container. Never store the mixture in a plastic bottle. Of course, if you use up the leftovers in a couple of days, you can pour the rest of the mixture into a plastic half-cup, but if the mixture will be stored for a long time, then either a canister or a glass container. The thing is that the gasoline mixture corrodes the plastic bottle, microscopic deposits of plastic appear in the mixture and this is very bad for the engine. Keep this in mind if you want your tool to run long and without problems.
The second most popular oil brand is the notorious Hooksvarna. Of course, when you think about it that way, more people use STIHL chainsaws, at least all my friends and their friends use them for work.
However, there are those who worship Husqvarna tools and I understand them, because I personally do not see much difference between Husqvarna and Stihl, both tools are of very high quality. But I have seen happy owners of Husqvarna chain saws. they say that the saws are awesome. I’ve never sawed myself, but I always listen to what people have to say. So, if you have a Husqvarna chain saw, it is better to use a special brand oil for it. Although nothing terrible will happen if you dilute the gasoline Stihl. But since the manufacturer recommends to use only his products, that’s what we’ll do.
You can find liter bottles on sale. Black stylish bottle, same markings on the side as Stihl’s (to know how much oil has been poured out of the bottle). Seems to me, absolutely identical quality. It costs 270, a little bit more expensive.
Both are high-quality oil, the cost is about the same, each diluted in the proportion of 1 to 50. So feel free to buy any, of course, it is better to take the oil of the brand you have the tool. then everything will be perfect, just like the manufacturer advises. Good luck with cutting and mowing, and let your power tool work for a long time without damage.
Features trimmer refueling
In order for the mixture to properly distribute in the fuel system of the device, it is necessary to follow a simple instruction. How to correctly fill a gasoline trimmer for grass:
- Do not put the brushcutter on a horizontal surface with the fuel tank neck up and pour in the correct amount of mixture;
- Do not fill the grass trimmer too much. watch how much fuel is at the level of the upper mark;
- Do not spill any fuel on the ground or on the body of the tool;
- Keep a safe distance from the fuel containers before you start the engine;
- If there was old fuel in the tank, the gas tank must be completely emptied before filling with new fuel.
Filling up your brushcutter with a two-stroke engine
To refuel gasoline trimmers of this type, you need to follow the already described instructions. It is necessary to maintain the oil ratio strictly and avoid spilling on the body of the tool. Check that the fuel tank is not overfilled, as this will make the engine unstable.
Filling of brushcutters with a four-stroke engine
The main difference is that grass trimmers with this type of engine are not filled with oil. Fill separately the Ai-92 and engine oil. General rules for filling tank are similar to those already described above.
Fuel mixture calculation result:
For more convenient measuring in milliliters use a medical syringe of larger volume, it is inexpensive, available at any drugstore. Or use any measuring cup with divisions.
Our calculator will help you calculate the right proportion to fuel any petrol tool, for example: a boat motor, chainsaw, grass trimmer, lawnmower, etc.д. In other words you can independently and for free calculate the correct gasoline/oil ratio for two-stroke engines. Mixing instructions in the photo below.
Important, before you start the calculation, read the instruction manual of the tool, in particular with the paragraphs: refueling volumes, fuel mix ratio. This information is the starting point for the calculation.

Please note that power tools have a run-in period and gasoline/oil ratio is different than recommended.
How much oil to fill Gasoline for grass trimmer
What gasoline is needed for the grass trimmer and how much oil to pour?
92 Gasoline. And the proportion of oil is written on the oil container and depends on its viscosity. Most often it is from 1 to 50 (20 grams of oil per liter of gasoline).
I don’t know much about such things, only that I know that gasoline depends on the type of grass trimmer (that is, the instructions specify what brand of gasoline is needed and how much oil is needed), but I found a website.Where you have the data you need.
We have a grass trimmer. It usually takes an aluminum canister and goes for 92 gasoline. How much oil you need in the trimmer manual or the trimmer itself. Look closely at the grass trimmer you have. There should be numbers 1:50, 1: 40,1: 20. This is the ratio of oil to gasoline.
Gasoline is needed for the grass trimmer 92, but AI-95 is better. It’s better about everything in the manuals. If you don’t have them, somewhere on the tank should indicate the proportion you need to pour in oil. There is a rule of thumb that it is better to pour the oil than to recharge. 1:20 somewhere they write, and other trimmers have 1:40. Take a good look at your trimmer.
For each brand of grass trimmer you need to have a mixture of gasoline and in a certain proportion. You usually get an indication in the instruction manual of the optimum ratio. Some manufacturers, like STIHL, make ready-to-use fuel mixtures for their products.
Choosing the right oil for your chain saw
Two-stroke engines are fueled with a mixture of unleaded gasoline and oil marked 2T. You should use recommended gasoline AI-92. If a higher octane rating is used, the flash and combustion temperatures will be higher and the valves will burn prematurely. The same goes for the oil. The recommended mix is not the most expensive. But using another brand is not allowed. Viscosity will change, resulting in insufficient lubrication of conventional products made without precision lapping.
If you add too much oil, incomplete combustion will lead to fouling and excessive exhaust. A rich mixture is bad for the engine. For four-stroke engines, oil should be filled separately from gasoline. It washes components, cools, reduces friction. The oil gets contaminated during operation and must be changed after 50 operating hours. Which oil to use in the lawnmower is stated in the owner’s manual? Composition must be grade 4T with a viscosity grade of 10W40.
The best oil for any engine is the one recommended. However, the world famous oil is Shel Helix Ultra. Company spent 40 years developing new technology for synthetic oil from natural gas. Pureplus technology has led to an improved base oil composition. This is the basis on which the leading oil manufacturers get their recommended oils for their appliances, with the addition of the right additives.
The choice of oil depends primarily on the manufacturer’s recommendations. Only STIHL lawnmower oil is used in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations. The same oil is good for the brand Vityaz, since the engines in the brands are the same brand. There is an opinion of experts, the oil of any manufacturer, designed for one type of equipment, is suitable for use on all brands. But if there is a possibility, it’s better to use recommended.
It is necessary to have oil in stock for one season. A product that has stood for a long time loses its properties. Available on sale in packages of 0.1 to 5 liters.
The way of the oil recommended for Husqvarna lawnmower is studied. Company does not have its own production facilities, only a bottling plant. Product bought in bulk is poured into small containers, labeled and supplied to distribution network. Might have been mixed with additives exclusive to Husqvarna in the oil.
Use of oil according to the instruction manual for your brushcutter is compulsory. The equipment can’t work on pure gasoline.
