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.

    •   So conversely, decreasing the supply of labor increases the compensation for all the participants in that sector, and increases the cost of the products and services they deliver.

Does your God recognize these borders?   That's to bad. Dave's gone off the deep end and now arguing with himself!

    • One of my better ones up at the lake last summer. Finely diced fresh garlic, finely diced fresh onion, hand full of shredded cheddar cheese, tea spoon Liq smoke, big spoon of Jalapeno mustered all mixed in meat. Put on a toasted onion bun with a slice of cheddar cheese and topped with sautéed morel mushrooms and bacon! At least the burger was 93% fat free!
