HI TO ALL.
I HAVE JUST ACQUIRED A 1948 ATCO 17 INCH MEDIUM WEIGHT MOWER.
DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT THE CORRECT FUEL TO OIL RATIO IS?
The short sweet taste of cheapness is soon replaced by the long bitterness of poor quality.

16:1 (1 pint of oil in two gallons of petrol)is about normal. Use SAE30 motor oil, not modern 2 stroke oil.
