21 Aug MIXING 2 STROKE FUEL
Need to mix fuel for your STIHL 2-Stroke engine?
You’ll need STIHL 2 Stroke oil, an empty and clean fuel can & fresh unleaded fuel from a reputable petrol station.
Mix at 50:1 (20mls oil per 1 litre fuel) when you’re using STIHL 2-Stroke oil.
Using a different brand of 2-Stroke oil?
You’ll need to mix at 25:1 (40mls oil per 1 litre fuel)
Petrol has limited shelf life (as low as 30 days), so always mix with fresh regular unleaded, purchased from a reputable large volume fuel supplier.
Using a fuel stabiliser
To prolong the life of your 2 Stroke fuel mix you can add STIHL fuel stabiliser to extend the fuel’s shelf life up to 12 months.
15ml of STIHL fuel stabiliser will treat 5 litres of fuel.
