FUEL

WARNING
• Gasoline is very flammable. Avoid
smoking or bringing any flame or
sparks near fuel. Make sure to
stop the engine and allow it cool
before refueling the unit. Select
outdoor bare ground for fueling
and move at least 10ft (3m) away
from the fueling point before
starting the engine.
• The engines are lubricated by oil
specially formulated for air-
cooled 2-cycle gasoline engine
use. If Husqvarna oil is not
available, use an anti-oxidant
added quality oil expressly
labeled for air-cooled 2-cycle
engine use. (JASO FC GRADE OIL
or ISO EGC GRADE)
• Do not use BIA or TCW (2-stroke
water-cooling type) mixed oil.
RECOMMENDED MIXING RATIO
GASOLINE 50:OIL 1
• Exhaust emission are controlled
by the fundamental engine
parameters and components (i.e., carburation, ignition
timing and port timing) without addition of any major
hardware or the introduction of an inert material during
combustion.
• These engines are certified to operate on unleaded
gasoline.
• Make sure to use gasoline with a minimum octane
number of 89 RON (USA/Canada: 87AL)
• If you use a gasoline of a lower octane value than
specified, there is a danger that the engine temperature
may rise and an engine problem such as piston seizing
may consequently occur.
• Unleaded gasoline is recommended to reduce the
contamination of the air for the sake of your health and
the environment.
• Poor quality gasolines or oils may damage sealing rings,
fuel lines or fuel tank of the engine.

HOW TO MIX FUEL

IMPORTANT
Pay attention to agitation.
1. Measure out the quantities of gasoline and oil to be mixed.
2. Put some of the gasoline into a clean, approved fuel
container.
3. Pour in all of the oil and agitate well.
4. Pour in the rest of gasoline and agitate again for at least one
minute. As some oils may be difficult to agitate depending on
oil ingredients, sufficient agitation is necessary for the engine
to last long. Note that, if the agitation is insufficient, there is
an increased danger of early piston seizing due to an
abnormally lean mixture.
5. Indicate the contents on outside of container for easy
identification to avoid mixing with raw gasoline or other
containers.

FUELING THE UNIT

1. Untwist and remove the fuel cap.
2. Put fuel into the fuel tank to 80% of the full capacity.
3. Fasten the fuel cap securely and wipe up any fuel spillage
around the unit.
WARNING
1. Select bare ground for fueling.
2. Move at least 10 feet (3 meters) away from the fueling
point before starting the engine.
3. Stop the engine and let it cool for a few minutes before
refueling the unit. At that time, be sure to sufficiently
agitate the mixed gasoline in the container.
4. Do not smoke or place hot objects near fuel.
FOR YOUR ENGINE LIFE, AVOID;
1. FUEL WITH NO OIL (RAW GASOLINE) - It will cause severe
damage to the internal engine parts very quickly.
2. GASOHOL - It can cause deterioration of rubber and/or
plastic parts and disruption of engine lubrication.
3. OIL FOR 4-CYCLE ENGINE USE - It can cause spark plug
fouling, exhaust port blocking, or piston ring sticking.
4. Mixed fuels which have been left unused for a period of one
month or more may clog the carburetor and result in the
engine failing to operate properly.
5. When storing the product for a long period of time, clean the
fuel tank after rendering it empty. Next, activate the engine
and empty the carburetor of the composite fuel.
6. When scrapping the used mixed oil container, scrap it only at
an authorized repository site.
NOTE
For details of quality assurance, read the description in the
Warranty section carefully. Moreover, normal wear and
change in product with no functional influence are not
covered by the warranty. Also, note that if the usage in the
instruction manual is not observed for the mixed gasoline,
etc. as described herein, it may not be covered by the
warranty.
