All STIHL gasoline-powered equipment uses a 50:1 gas and oil mixture.
SPARK PLUG GAP: 0.5 mm (0.020 in.)
Only from STIHL – This patented 50:1 fuel mixture combines non-ethanol, high-octane fuel and premium STIHL HP Ultra Oil.
Use a minimum of 89 octane gasoline and always use fresh fuel. Only buy enough gasoline that you can easily use up within a two- month period. For air-cooled, two-cycle engines, use a quality mix oil that meets the engine manufacturer`s recommendations.
For a mixing ratio of 1 : 50 you need 5 litres of petrol and 0.10 litres (100cm³) of STIHL two-stroke oil.
Most modern chainsaws, string trimmers, leaf blowers and other small-engine two-stroke equipment recommend a 50:1 oil mix ratio, but some recommend 40:1 and older two-stroke equipment might even call for 32:1.
