Poulan/Weed Eater #Wt200 711724 24cc Gas Blower/Vac

What ratio gas to 2-cycle oil do I mix for a Poulin Weedeater? My husband used to use the machine and now he has Alzheimer’s and can no longer do or remember anything about it, so I have to learn.Liz Hazell
Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
Use 3.2 oz of 2-cycle oil to one gallon of gasoline. If you use 3.3 up to 4 oz you would be okay nut it may smoke a little. Sorry to hear about your husband. Good luck…Lee

A 40:1 ratio is recommended for this particular model. To obtain the correct mixture, pour 3.2 ounces (95 ml) of 2-cycle synthetic oil into one gallon (4 liters) of fresh unleaded gasoline.
Most STIHL gasoline-powered equipment runs on a 50:1 mixture of gasoline and 2-cycle engine oil.
Fuel Mix. According to Stihl, gas and oil for leaf blowers should be mixed at a ratio of 50 parts gas to 1 part oil. This amounts to about 2.6 ounces of oil to each gallon of gas.
A: The fuel-oil mixture ratio is 40:1. You can obtain this ratio by mixing 3.2 oz. of two cycle air cooled engine oil with one gallon of regular gas. Over a period of time oil will separate from gasoline.
If your manufacturer recommends a 50:1 fuel/oil mix, it means you need 50 parts of gas to one part two-stroke oil. To mix one gallon of fuel at 50:1, add 2.6 ounces of two-stroke oil to one gallon of gas, as shown in the chart below.
The stoichiometric mixture for a gasoline engine is the ideal ratio of air to fuel that burns all fuel with no excess air. For gasoline fuel, the stoichiometric air–fuel mixture is about 14.7:1 i.e. for every one gram of fuel, 14.7 grams of air are required.
This ratio indicates how much fresh, regular unleaded gasoline (containing no more than 10% ethanol) to mix with how much oil. For all Remington 2-cycle products, the ratio is 40:1. This means you`ll want to add 3.2 oz of oil to every gallon of gasoline.
For a 50:1 ratio of gas to oil, use 2.6 fluid ounces of oil per gallon of gas. For a 40:1 mixture, use 3.2 fluid ounces of oil per gallon of gas.
100:1 – Mix 50ml of oil per 5ltrs of fuel.

Recommended by Yamaha and Suzuki for most of their small two stroke engines up to about 30hp, this ratio requires the least amount of TCW3 two stroke oil. The result of using this ratio (less oil) is reduced spark plug fouling and less smoke.

It`ll probably work in a pinch but I wouldn`t do it long term. You`re putting less oil in a motor that requires more, in turn providing less lubrication than is required.
40 to 1 ratio

This equals 25mls of two stroke oil to 1 litre of petrol.

For a mixing ratio of 1 : 50 you need 5 litres of high-octane gas and 0.10 litres (100 ml) of STIHL two-stroke oil.
Q: How do I mix gas and oil? A: Mix 3.2 ounces of Poulan 2-cycle air cooled engine oil to one gallon of fresh unleaded gasoline to obtain the recommended 40:1 fuel to oil ratio.
For a 50:1 ratio of gas to oil, use 2.6 fluid ounces of oil per gallon of gas. For a 40:1 mixture, use 3.2 fluid ounces of oil per gallon of gas.
