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 small amounts of
fuel, even small inaccuracies can drastical-
ly affect the ratio of the mixture.
WARNING:
Always ensure
there is adequate ventilation when
handling fuel.
Gasoline
CAUTION! Always use high quality
unleaded gasoline.
S This engine is certified to operate on
unleaded gasoline.
S The lowest recommended octane rating
is 87. If you run the engine on lower oc-
tane rating than 87, "knocking" can oc-
cur. This leads to an increased engine
temperature, which can result in a seri-
ous engine breakdown.
S When working at continuous high revs a
higher octane rating is recommended.
Two- -stroke oil
S For great results and performance use
HUSQVARNA two- -stroke oil, which is
specially formulated for our two- -stroke
engines. Mixture 1:50 (2%).
S To maximize the life of your blower, you
may choose to use a high quality syn-
thetic oil formulated for two- -stroke
engines. Mixture 1:50 (2%).
S Never use two- -stroke oil intended for
water- -cooled outboard engines,
sometimes referred to as outboard oil.
S Never use oil intended for four- -stroke
engines.
