Use of the correct fuel is also very important to all 2 stroke engines to ensure optimum engine life and ease of starting. The correct fuel to oil ratio for this blower is 50:1 (2%).
Only semi synthetic, or fully synthetic oils of good quality should be used. We supply Rock Groundsman 2 stoke oil which we have found to be 100% reliable.
However, the fuel mix is only as good as the base petrol and unfortunately modern petrols are very poor quality and tend to degrade quickly (within a couple of months from purchase).
This degraded fuel leads to poor starting and reduced performance. As the fuel ages it also causes the oil content to separate from the petrol which can cause serious engine damage if used.
To overcome the problems associated with todays ‘pump’ petrol we strongly recommend the use of ASPEN alkylate fuel in all small petrol engines.
