Strikemaster Lazer Mag Fuel/Oil Mix

5 posts in this topic

I figured I would ask the question here before I call Strikemaster customer service. Here is my situation: I have a two year old Strikemaster Lazer Mag that has a 2hp tecumseh power head. The sticker on the head indicates that a 24:1 fuel/oix should be used. However, I noticed a large amount of oil secreting from the muffler at various points, so I thought the mix was too rich. I checked the Strikemaster HSOforum and it says that the fuel/oil mix for 2hp tecumseh should be 40:1. What am I missing? Did they change the power head recently to a different model that requires a 40:1 mix or is the sticker on my auger wrong and I am using way too rich of a mix?

I have a 10 yr old lazermag, this is my 1st year 100:1 Amsoil Saber. Runs better than ever, limited smoke, no oil leakage from the muffler.No oil leaking in the portable when transporting either. Give it a try , it is great stuff.

Ditto what the other guys have said but it's VERY IMPORTANT to know that Amsoil is a synthetic designed to run at that mixure, Don't try it with anything else. If you switch to Amsoil make sure you get the proper oil as the make a few differnt types for differnt applications. Side note I've been using for it years in my strikemaster and it's awesome. It started on the first pull after sitting for a year and it did smoke for a bit till she warmed up and cleared out. Good luck.

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
