GASOLINE
The two-cycle
engine on this product requires a fuel mix-
ture of regular unleaded gasoline
and a high quality en-
gine oil for Iubrication
of the bearings and other moving
parts.
The correct fuel/oil mixture
is 40:1 (see Fuel Mix-
ture Chart). Too little oil or the incorrect
oil type will
cause poor performance and may cause the engine to over-
heat and seize.
Gasoline and oil must be premlxed in a clean approved fuel
container.
Always use fresh regular unleaded gasoline.
IMPORT _ANT:
Experience
indicates
that
alcohol
blended
fuels called gasohol (or using ethanol or metha-
nol) can attract moisture, which leads to oi!/gas separa-
tion and formation of acids during storage.
Acidic gas can
damage the fuel system of an engine While in storage. To
avoid engine problems, the fuel system should be emptied
before storage for 30 days or longer. Drain the gas tank,
then run the fuel out of the carburetor
and fuel lines by
starting the engine and letting it run until it stops.
Use
fresh fuel next season.
See STORAGE
instructions
for
ad&'tional information.
Never use engine or carburetor
cleaner products
in the fuel tank or permanent damage
may occur.
FUEL STABILIZER
Fuel stabilizer is an acceptable
alternative
in minimizing
the formation
of fuel gum deposits
during storage. Add
stabilizer
to gasoline
in fuel tank or storage container.
Always follow the fuel mix ratio found on the stabilizer
container.
Run engine at least 10 minutes
after adding
stab'_zer to allow the stabilizer
to reach the carburetor.
You do not have to drain the fuel tank for storage if you are
using fuel stabilizer.
CRAFTSMAN 40:1 2 cycle engine off is specially blended
with fuel stabilizers.
If you do not use this Semrs off, you
can add afuel stabilizer (such as Craftsman No. 33500) to
y_r
._ael ta_.
CRAFTSMAN 40:1 2 cycle oilis strongly recommended.
This off is specially blended
with fue! stabilizers
for
increased
fuel stability (extends fuel life up to 5 times
longer') and reduced smoke.
If CRAFTSMAN 2 cycle oil is not available, use a good
quality 2 cycle AIR-COOLED
engine
oil that has a
recommended
fuel mix ratio of 40:1.
IMPORTANT!
Do not use:
AUTOMOTIVE
OIL
BOAT OILS (NMMA, BIA. etc.)
These oils do not have proper additives for 2-cycle,
AIR-COOLED
engines and can cause engine damage.

AND
OIL iVIIXTURE

Consult chart for correct quantities.
• Do not mix gasoline and oil directly in the fuel tank.
