Mixing Gas for 2 Cycle Engines

If you are like a lot of people living in the suburbs or on a farm or lifestyle block, you probably have several 2 cycle engines such as a weed eater, chainsaw, blower, etc. Most of these engines take different mixtures 1/50, 1/32 etc. All the instructions tell how to mix one gallon, however, you usually only need a tank or two at a time, and a gallon will go bad before it is used up. Nobody needs several gallons of bad gas mixed at different ratios; the solution is to mix a tank at a time.

1

Always stabilize your gas before you start. It will keep the gas fresh for longer periods of time and protect your engines from gumming up. One example is STA-BIL, however, there are many others available.

SKU: 090180383

2

Use a measuring device for small amounts, 2oz- 1oz- 1/2 oz and 1/4 oz. There are many available.  You will also need small mixing containers, 12 gallon (1.9 L) and quart measuring cups will take care of most of your needs.

SKU: 006232160

3

If your engine calls for a 1/32 mixture that is 1 oz of oil to 32 oz of gas, or 1/2oz of oil to 16oz of gas, or 1/4 oz oil to 8 oz. gas, mix only what you need at the time.

4

Find a piece of cardboard or plywood and list all your equipment on it.Include the ratios that they require, and the recipe for a tank of gas. Put this on the garage wall; this will keep you from looking up the manual each time you use it.

*DIY Hand Scrub*

This dry winter weather is just drying my hands out like crazy!! I have been looking for an easy and inexpensive DIY hand scrub and stumbled across this one. Using this 1-2 times a day has helped my dry hands smooth right out!

What you will need:

-Dawn brand Olay hand renewal dish soap

- Sugar

- Mason Jar

- Butter knife or spoon (I find the butter knife works best)

What to do:

-Fill your Mason jar ¾ of the way full with your sugar

-Now you can add the dish soap leaving a little extra room at the top (you will need to add a little extra sugar after stirring)

-Stir the sugar and soap together at this time and if more sugar is needed continue to add it as you go until you get a pasty consistency.

- You are ready to use the hand scrub!! I would recommend using 1-2 times daily, for me I use it once in the AM and once before bed.

The pretty pink color would make this a great Valentine’s Day gift for next month! You can jazz the jar up with some ribbon or labels for any occasion really.

Diesel Fuel Treatments

Are you looking for a way to prevent fuel-filters from freezing? Are you looking for a way to extend the life of your fuel injection pumps and fuel injector? Are you looking for a way to make fuel last up to three times longer?

If you answered yes to one or all of the questions above then we have the right products for you. Rural King carries multiple different fuel additives that can get the job done for you year round!

 

How to Deice Frozen Fuel Filters

Water is dissolved in and carried by all diesel fuels. At temperatures below +32°F, water that has collected in fuel-filters freezes. This causes decreased fuel flow to the engine and results in reduced engine power or engine shutdown.

To de-ice frozen fuel-filters, check to insure that diesel fuel in the equipment fuel tanks is not gelled. If fuel is liquid:

  • 1. Remove fuel-filters.
  • 2. Empty remaining liquid from fuel-filters.
  • 3. Fill fuel-filters with 50% Diesel 9•1•1® and 50% diesel fuel.
  • 4. Re-install fuel-filters.
  • 5. Start engine.
  • 6. If outside temperature is below +20°F, add Power Service Diesel Fuel Supplement® +Cetane Boost® as directed to prevent further gelling.
