Oil consumption for the Stihl lawn mower. Preparation of fuel mixture for two -stroke engines

trimmer for the grass Stihl FS 55 What gasoline to fill

The equipment described above must be used by wearing special clothes and using equipment. Clothing should not interfere at work. You should choose the one that adjacent to the body. It is necessary to exclude wide sleeves that could catch on shrubs, wood or mobile details of the unit.

It is important to take off ties and shai. This also applies to jewelry

Before starting the Stihl FS 55 lawn mower, you must wear protective boots that have a rough sole. It is important to use a special protective helmet and glasses that exclude damage to the organs of vision.

What gasoline to fill in the Stihl lawn mower

Hi all! Glad to see you again, dear readers and subscribers on the blog Andrew knocking. Everyone who has a chainsaw at home knows exactly what gasoline is and how to refuel it. But to everyone who just wants to buy such an apparatus, the article seems interesting.

Chainsaw. One of the most convenient and universal household units. You must prepare the fuel mixture before use. But for the proper operation of the device, all recommendations of the manufacturer must be followed. Each model is different, so gasoline should be poured into a chainsaw?

Under the brand

For modern brands, for example, GUSKVARNA, Partner, Makita, Echo, Calm, AI-92 gasoline is suitable. Today, only a huge number of people complain of premature failure of a chainsaw due to poor gasoline. Therefore, some experts recommend filling AI-95 into such chainsaws. At the same time, a good AI-95 can “burn the piston”, and again some people find a compromise and mix AI-95 with AI-92. In general, it all depends on the quality of gasoline and ultimately you decide.

For a household tool of the Ural Druzhba, it is recommended to take gasoline AI-80

It is very important that fuel consumption is minimal

Preparation of the mixture: important proportions

When using a two.stroke engine, pure fuel is purchased separately and mixed with oil, often in a ratio of 1:50. It is impossible to install an oil pump in such an engine, so it is strictly forbidden to fill in pure gasoline into a chainsaw! Proportions, quantities and some manufacturer brands are indicated in the instructions.

Important points in the preparation process:

  • Chainsaws work with M8-V oil, M-12TPU, M8-V, TP, MGD-14M. In some cases, foreign options can be used;
  • Proportions: 2.5 liters of FI-80 gasoline per 100 grams of oil;
  • Foreign models are characterized by minimal fuel consumption. They work on foreign oils and have proportions 1:40 or 1:50.

Fuel mixture

To properly prepare fuel, you will need a list of additional tools:

  • Plastic or metal container for diluting a substance;
  • Measuring bottle for gasoline;
  • Spray;
  • Syringe;
  • Funeral funnel for filling the chainsaw in the tank.

Some manufacturers, such as STIHL, immediately produce measuring tanks to facilitate the measurement of the fuel mixture.

Different manufacturers produce oils of different colors. HP produces red liquid. Green hue. Premium synthetic segment. For Husqvarna chainsaws, you need to take oil of the corresponding brand. It has a high cost, good quality and has green or blue.

Varieties of motor oils, their purpose

a special composition, which is a solvent and additives, which reduce friction, creating the necessary fluidity and preventing thickening when the temperature decreases.

The way to get the composition is:

  • Mineral oil obtained from distillation;
  • synthetic. by synthesis or processing of natural gas;
  • Semi.synthetic. improved mineral oil due to the introduction of synthetic components.

For security reasons, so as not to confuse products, the oil is painted in red, blue or green. The assortment differs in composition, the user needs to buy oil indicated “for garden equipment” 2T, if you need to prepare the mixture. 4T for filling in the crankcase.

Synthetic and mineral oils have different bases, they cannot be mixed. When switching to another type of oil, the system must be thoroughly washed.

The oil tank oil must be classified in accordance with the classification of vehicle oil for air-cooled engines with a combustion chamber 50-200 cm3. When choosing a product, an important parameter is not the price, but the protective properties for the engine of a particular brand. Therefore, first of all, they buy recommended oil, in the absence they choose the same oil.

Determines the quality of the oil for the alkaline value of the gas tank. Plugged neutralizes the process of oxidation of rubbing materials, slows down the destruction of the surface. When the oil is oxidized, it loses its protective properties. The normal level of PH of oil is 8-9 units.

An important indicator is viscosity. Therefore, there is winter, summer and all.season oil. What use of oil for a gasoline pump depends on whether the user will work at a minus temperature. Summer oil thickens even with slight cooling. The flash temperature shows how quickly the oil will burn out of the composition. Optimal if this indicator is more than 225 s.

Use and cost of oil in a two.stroke engine

The operation of the engine is associated with the friction of the moving parts of the cylinder and bushings, cams, hinges. During friction of the parts, the surface heats up, and with stretching. scuffing. If in the gap between the conjugated parts there is a composition in the correct proportion of oil and gasoline for a gasoline pump, a number of problems are solved:

  • parts in the engine work with reduced friction, less heat;
  • The lubrication in the gaps prevents the corrosion of parts during long.term storage, rinses the particles obtained during friction;
  • extends engine service life.


For trimmers, a special two.stroke oil is made, on the package of which there should be a note “2t”. Car, and even more so, transmission oil is strictly prohibited. Two.stroke oil in three types is produced:

It all depends on what substances make up the oil base. Mineral oil is the cheapest and unreliable. Its use is justified only in household class trimmers, which work for 30-60 minutes a day with large interruptions. Most manufacturers of motorcycles of this level indicate that TS-W3 class oil is suitable for the engine. This means that you can use mineral, synthetic and semi.synthetic oil 2t.

It is advisable to buy only those grades of oil that the manufacturer recommends for a professional class motorcycle. This is usually semi.synthetics and synthetics with special additives. Manufacturers mark the oil in letters:

  • That. for two.stroke engines with a volume of up to 50 cubic centimeters;
  • TV. for engines 50. 200 cubic centimeters;
  • TS. for engines of motorcycles, snowmobiles, etc.D.

In motorcycles, if the type of oil is not indicated in the instructions, you can fill in all three modifications. How much oil is added to the fuel of the trimmer for grass depends on the brand of the tool and the quality of gasoline. Also, on the packaging with butter, the letters FA, FB, FC, etc. may occur.D. They show the level of smoke. The closer the second letter to the beginning of the alphabet, the more smoke stands out during combustion. As a rule, high.quality oil has very little. This indicator does not affect the choice of oil. important than the inscriptions “Self Mix” and “Pre Mix”. The first phrase means that the oil dissolves independently, and the container with the second mixture must be shaken several times. The best oils in the market are STIHL, Shell Helix Ultra, Oleo-Mac, Lukoil.

How to dilute gasoline with oil for a trimmer for grass

Dilute gasoline for a trimmer for grass in the correct proportion. Insufficient oil can lead to poor lubrication of the elements of the lawn mower, which contributes to rapid wear. In case the oil is more than the olive formed on the pistons and spark plugs. Foreths on the moving parts of the engine interferes with normal operation and leads to the speedy breakdown of the motor.

What proportion is required for a specific model of a trimmer for grass can be found from the attached instructions. Most often, for 2-stroke gasoline motors of motorcycles, the fuel mixture is used in a ratio of 50: 1, where 50 is part of the gasoline, 1-part of the oil. That is, 20 ml of oil should be added to 1 liter of gasoline. The table will help to choose the necessary ratio.

To correctly measure the proportions, use measured containers with a milliliter scale. For these purposes, a special canister with a double neck is perfect, it is designed to mix and storage of oilbenzin. For example, oil can be typed with a medical syringe without a needle. Before mixing liquids, make sure that there is no water, dust and particles of dirt in the container for the finished fuel mixture.

Diluting gasoline with lubricating fluid directly in the fuel tank is unacceptable, in addition, the proportion of oil and gasoline should be clearly observed. If you ignore this rule, then the operation of a trimmer engine for grass can be unstable, which is why it will quickly fail.

It is not recommended to use plastic bottles or canists for this purpose. This is due to the fact that gasoline has the ability to dissolve plastic, which means that part of the plastic can get into the fuel tank, which can lead to a carburetor breakdown. Although there are special plastic canists with the marking “Flame”.

  • petrol;
  • oil suitable for two.stroke engines with an air cooling system;
  • canister, better metal;
  • Mixing container is also better metal;
  • gloves;
  • respirator.

In addition to protective equipment, do not forget about fire safety rules, because gasoline and engine oil are easily ignited:

  • It is better to work on the street to avoid accumulation of gasoline vapor in the room;
  • you can not smoke and create situations related to the emergence of a spark.

Make a mixture of gasoline and oil as follows:

  • Pour 1 liter of gasoline into the container, add half the desired portion of the oil. Mix thoroughly, do it extremely carefully away from the sources of open fire.
  • Add the rest of the oil to gas for the grass and mix thoroughly again. Now fuel can be poured into the fuel tank of a trimmer for grass.

The mixture can be stored for no more than three months, so it is better to dilute gasoline in such quantities that there is enough use.

For dilution, only high.quality oil can be used, while it is recommended to purchase it only in trusted stores, for example in specialized hypermarkets.

Motokos oil. how to choose in what proportions to breed

Many of you have a benzo tool in the household, for example, in a private house you can not do without a chainsaw. You understand, the harvesting of firewood for the winter is useful at a construction site and repair and in general, this is a very necessary tool. If a country house also has a decent area in size, then to combat grass just needs a trimmer for grass or a lawn mower, which also work on gasoline.

Of course, they can be bought and electric, but not everyone likes to pull a 30-meter extension cord to dig an area overgrown with grass knee-deep. Therefore, most people prefer to work as a gasoline tool. As you know, you need to add special oil for two.stroke engines to gasoline. We’ll talk about it, because this is a very important aspect, if you do not add oil and add in the wrong proportions, then your engine will quickly “grunt” and your path will lie to the service center. To avoid all these troubles, add only high.quality oil and in the correct proportions.

The most popular for chainsaws, motorcycle and trimmers is the products of the famous company STIHL. It is sold in 2 packages. 1 liter and 100ml. For those who work hard, a liter bottle is suitable, and a small bottle is enough to “drink” at a time. A capacity of 1 liter costs 250, and 10 ml. 60. If you take a large one, then the savings are obvious.

Oil is added to gasoline in a proportion of 1 to 50, that is, for example, add 100 ml per 5 liters of gasoline. As you can see, a small bottle is great for 5 liters of gasoline mixture for refueling a chainsaw or trimmer for grass. On a large bottle on the side there are special marks by which you can determine how much oil was poured out of the bottle. If you bought a large 1 liter bottle, then buy a 20ml syringe in a pharmacy. Very convenient. 1 oil syringe per 1 liter of gasoline.

Experts advise using branded oil for their technology, it is ideal, since it is developed and tested precisely on Stihl tools. I note that Stiel has its own brands, such as Viking (popular models of gasoline trimmers). For them, also use Stilevsky oil and there will be no problems at all.

If you have made a gasoline mixture more than you can use it, then it is best to store the remains in a metal canister or in a glass container. In no case do not store the mixture in a plastic bottle. Of course, if you consume the remains after a couple of days, then you can pour the remnants of the mixture in a plastic one and a half, however, if the mixture is stored for a long time, then either a canister or a glassotter. The thing is that the gas mixture corrodes the plastic bottle, microscopic plastic precipitation appears in the mixture and this is very bad for the engine. Keep this in mind if you want your tool to work for a long time and without problems.

The second most popular brand of oil is a non.bonding hokesworm. Of course, if you estimate it, after all, Stihl chainsaws use more people, at least all my friends and their friends use only them in their work.

However, there are those who do not have souls in the Husqvarna tool and I understand them, since I personally do not see much difference between Khuskvarnaya and Shtil, and one and the other tool is very high quality. But I saw satisfied owners of Husqvarna chainsaws. they say, saws are just super. I myself did not saw, however, I always listen to the opinion of people. So, if you have a gasqvarna gas tool, then it will be better for him to use special branded oil. Although nothing terrible will happen if you dilute the gasoline with a signs. But since the manufacturer recommends using only its products, we will do so.

On sale you can find liter containers. Black stylish bottle, the same marks on the side, and with a person (to know how much oil was cast from a bottle). As for me, absolutely identical quality. Such a bottle is 270, a bit more expensive.

Both that, and another oil, the cost is approximately the same, each is diluted in the proportion of 1 to 50. So feel free to buy anyone, of course, it is better to take the oil of the brand you have a tool. then everything will be perfect, as the manufacturer advises. Good sawing, spinning grass and let your gas tools work for a long time without breakdowns.

Advantages and disadvantages of oil

Any high.quality machine oil has its pros and cons of

Any high.quality machine oil has its pros and cons of. Some experts say that any chainsaw oil is suitable for any. This is not entirely true, almost any substance can be used for Hursstavna chainsaw, but only transmission oil is required for the StiHL chainsaw. When choosing, you need to know the Oil Cauline, a two.stroke engine requires a composition that has a reddish, bluish or greenish tide.

Read trimmer for Husqvarna grass is not gaining momentum

To make a mixture yourself, it is required to use heat.resistant lubricant, which has a well.known trademark.

The seasonality affects the density of the product:

What are the features of different oils, you can find out carefully by studying the label on the container. In the absence of instructions or labels on the package, you should refuse to use such a substance. At the same time, the TTX of the oil should not radically change when the temperature modes are dropped.

You should not use any substitutes, often among them are counterfeit products (up to 20%). It is quite difficult to distinguish a fake, it is required to have specially equipment.

It is recommended to store fuel in metal containers. It is best to cook the fuel mixture in the canister.

There are a large number of oils and each has its own characteristics

TTX of mineral or organic oil intended for the chain itself are not suitable for preparing the fuel mixture. The reservoir (up to half) is filled with the finished product, then mixed (the container must be hermetically closed). Thus, a uniform composition is obtained. It is better not to cook fuel ahead of time, it quickly loses its functional properties. At room temperature, the combustible liquid deteriorates for two weeks.

Stihl chainsaws: what oil for gasoline to use?

A number of manufacturers producing equipment also produce their consumables that are adapted to the operation of a particular engine. So StiHL produces oil exclusively for its technique. It is equipped with special additives that can compensate for the quality of fuel, improving the lubricant and purification of the fuel mixture. It should be noted that Husqvarna HP oil is universal and can be used for any chainsaw. It can be used at a temperature not lower.10 degrees.

And also for two-stroke engines, the products of the following brands are used: Sadko, Kraissmann, Oleo-Mac Prosint. If you use the stihl chainsaw, how much oil per liter of gasoline must be poured? The ratio will be 25 ml of additive per liter of fuel. It must be remembered that there are oils for chains and motors. They are intended for different purposes and are not interchangeable. The use of chain oil for the preparation of a fuel and lubricants leads to a breakdown of the tool.

Advantages of branded oils

The proportion of oil to gasoline for the chainsaw is not the main factor affecting the stable operation of the equipment. The quality of the oil is important, since it will depend on it how much all the elements of the engine system will be lubricated.

It is recommended to purchase liquids from branded brands. In this case, the choice must be stopped only on oils for two.stroke engines. It is forbidden to use lubricant materials for car engines for fueling.

2 Stroke Oil Ratio Explained. MORE OIL = MORE POWER!

Branded brands, including Husqvarna, Kreissman, Stihl and Sadko, have many advantages that include:

  • cost.effectiveness;
  • Nar of soot;
  • decrease in the toxicity of exhaust gases;
  • Stable work under the most difficult conditions.

However, the main advantage is the long service life.

Caution. falsifier!

Small private companies from China and other Asian countries specialize in the production of motor oils, which are at a lower cost are sold in markets under the trademark of leading manufacturers.

  • Characteristics of fake products are an order of magnitude lower than branded originals. The constant use of the falsifier negatively affects the work of the chainsaw and the durability of its operation.
  • Only an experienced specialist can determine the status and quality of oil, so you can avoid possible risks by buying supplies in the network of company and licensed retail outlets.
  • The use of non-inforiate lubricants for service specialists is a legal basis for depriving the owner of a faulty saw of warranty repair and restoration obligations.

Can You Use Used 4 Stroke Oil in a 2 Stroke Engine?

Standard proportions

Often with the proportions of oil and fuel for reliable operation of motorcycles, problems arise. The reason for everything is absolutely different information in the sources. You may encounter the difference in data in terms of a dozen units, but it happens half. Therefore, you involuntarily think about how many oils per 1 liter of gasoline are needed: 20 ml or all 40. But for this there is a technical passport for the product that you purchase in the store. There should be a description of the device, instructions for its operation and instructions on the rules for preparing the fuel mixture.

First of all, it is necessary to take into account the information that the manufacturer recommends, since in the case of failure of the motorcycles, you can make your claims to him, and not a third.party source. If there is no instructions in the passport, and even more so if the passport is missing, then we recommend looking for another trimmer model for grass at a more reliable seller.

For all other cases when you have a lawn mower model in your hands and there is no way to find out its technical features, there are standard proportions of the most likely components of the fuel mixture for a two.stroke engine. Basically, these units use AI-92 gasoline and special synthetic oil, which contains a solvent for better mixing with fuel. Such oil evaporates slowly and has the ability to completely burn in the cylinder, without leaving a car.

The standard attitude of synthetic oil to gasoline is 1: 50. This means that 100 ml of oil needs 5 liters of gasoline, and in accordance with this, oil consumption per 1 liter of gasoline is 20 ml. Knowing the amount of oil required to dilute 1 liter of fuel, you can easily calculate any norms when preparing fuel for a trimmer for grass. When using mineral oils, the ratio of 1: 40 is most often standard. Therefore, 1 liter of fuel will require 25 ml of such oil, and 125 ml per 5-liter canister.

When the lawn mower is working, it will not be difficult to determine and adjust the actual amount of oil, the right of a particular model, who has a little experience in the operation of such a technique. You should only pay attention to exhaust gases (their color, toxicity of the smell), stability of the cycles, engine heating and developed power. about what consequences from the incorrect proportions of mixing gasoline and oil can be expected is lit in another section of the article. There are motorcycles operating on gasoline AI-95 brand gasoline. It should also be taken into account.

If the manufacturer recommends fuel with such an octane number, then you need to follow the requirements so as not to reduce the working resource of technology.

What gasoline to fill

Gasoline for a trimmer for grass must be selected unhealthy with an equal number of 92 or 95. As practice shows, AI-80 gasoline can lead to breakdowns of the device, which is a dubious savings.

The fuel should be fresh, that is, after buying it can be stored for no more than 60 days.

Other factors are affected by the quality of fuel, for example, the use of a special lubricant for the lawn mower and its breeding in a separate container. It is also recommended to use special canists designed to store gasoline.

Fuel consumption

One of the most important issues that the owners of the sawing tool appears, because everyone wants to know what to count on.

The volume of actually all tanks is approximately 500 ml. If the power of the chainsaw is two kW, then the fuel consistency consumption will be approximately 1.2 liters per hour of operation. To say simply, then such a tool will be able to work for the greatest speed for half an hour without a break. If the chainsaw is not so powerful, then the volume of the tank will have much smaller. So the user can control the fuel consumption without the help of others.

Over time, the user will learn how to create a service of his own tool without any help. The main task is to preserve the economic unit in a good job, using high.quality fuel consistency. Observe the safety rules in the manufacture of combustible water. This will help save the tool, also not to harm for yourself and the environment.

Advantages of STIHL oil

note! Recently, fakes of original oil in unscrupulous sellers have become widespread on the territory of our country. Using it with a professional tool can lead to a major engine breakdown.

How to distinguish the original stihl oil from a fake?

  • the neck and the lid are sealed;
  • On the back side indicates the date of roslice;
  • Pictures are clearly printed, without lubrication and strokes;
  • The name on the label is written in many languages;
  • convex measured line of liters;
  • relief inscriptions and a soldered bottom.

Alas, sometimes the appearance of the packaging and bottles is practically no different from the corporate party. The main guarantee of acquiring really high.quality STIHL oil is to buy it only from an official dealer.

Therefore, before saving on the purchase, know that the repair of a spoiled device will cost ten times more expensive. Plus, when using counterfeit lubrication and components, it loses an official guarantee from the manufacturer.

Why is it worth ordering STIHL oil from us?

  • Free delivery on the day of order by
  • Shipment at night. Metro Tula, ul. Pavlovskaya 27/29.
  • Sending a transport company to any region

To buy stihl engine or adhesive oil, place an order on the site or call or to clarify information from a specialist.

Repair of small breakdowns

Little repair can do almost any person. In the electric motor, the user will only be able to check the contacts or replace the brushes. A lot of the elements of the microcircuit cannot be fixed without service intervention.

To prevent a breakdown of a gasoline engine, you need to blow the container with air before pouring new portions of the mixture. this measure will remove exhaust gases. Four.stroke engines are not recommended to be highlighted: the oil supply to the details may stop, which will disable the engine.

If the trimmer motor for the grass has broken, and the user does not have knowledge in the field of electromechanics, then it is best not to try to disassemble it, but to contact specialists.

consumption, stihl, lawn, mower

But with such small breakdows you can cope with your own hands.

  • With a haggard inclusion toggle switch, you can independently replace it with a new. True, at the same time, knowledge of the basics of electrical engineering and the ability to work with a soldering iron will be needed.
  • With a wire limit, flexible wire (copper or aluminum) will help with a mowing head. You can also make a new stainless steel mount.
  • The torn fishing line for the trimmer can really be replaced by yourself. To do this, you can choose a nylon or nylon material, from 0.9 to 1.5 mm in diameter (you better know your own in advance). The drum is made manually, the fishing line for the trimmer is wound, after which it can be assembled.
  • The broken bar is also easy to fasten to brackets or rails.
  • With strong vibration, the motorcycle should be greased.
  • It is better to replace plastic knives with metal (stainless steel). They can be attached to the shaft with a sleeve and washer. This “transformation” will make even hard grass mow.
  • If the engine does not start, you need to do the following. briefly close the damper to enrich the mixture. You can also try to change the mixture. Then it remains to check whether gasoline comes, and if necessary, clean (or even replace a candle of incandescent).

Recommendations for the extension of the service

In order to avoid situations with repairs, it is best to try to prevent them. To do this, you should focus on such recommendations.

  • To extend the service life of a semi.automatic coil, it should be often pulled out manually. Try not to hit the ground.
  • You can not work everyday oblique time for a long time. In electric, this moment will be noticeable along the heated casing. But at first, you can not overload the engine and the gasoline analogue. The disk should be put only after the consumption of one volume of the tank.
  • Untimely cleaning can lead to excess moisture (the electric motor suffers) or clogging (loses power of the gasoline version).

If you approach technology with careful attitude, it will last much longer. And noting the signs of wear of the details, it is enough to change them in time, which will prevent more serious breakdown.
