FUELHANDLING
Fuel mixture
CAUTION!
The machine
is equipped
with
a two-stroke
engine and must always
be
run using a mixture
of gasoline
and two-
stroke engine oil. It is important
to accu-
rately measure
the amount of oil to be
mixed to ensure
that the correct
mixture
is
obtained.
When mixing sinai+ amounts of
fuel, even smelt inaccuracies
can drasticaF
ty effect the ratio of the mixture
&WARNING:
Always
ensure
there
is adequate
ventilation
when
handling
fuel.
Gasoline
CAUTION!
Always
use high quality
unleaded
gasoline
• This engine
is certified
to operate
on
unleaded
gasoline.
• The _owest recommended
octane
rating
is 87. If you run the engine on lower oc-
tane rating than 87, "knock{ng"
can oc-
cur. This leads to an increased engine
temperature,
which can resutt in a serb
ous engine breakdown.
• When
working
at continuous
high rays a
higher octane rating is recommended.
Two-stroke
oil
• For great resutts and performance
use
HUSQVARNA
two-stroke
oil, which is
special+y formutated
for our two-stroke
engines.
