Which is the best 2 stroke engine

Is this a two stroke engine? If so, what is the best oil to gasoline ratio?

Briggs and Stratton manufactures two-stroke & four-stroke engines. Two-stroke engines can propel your lawnmower, snow blower or high-pressure cleaner with one revolution of the crankshaft and two piston strokes. The vast majority of small engines manufactured by Briggs & Stratton are four-stroke, which require four piston strokes to complete one crankshaft revolution.

How to identify a small two-stroke engine

The easiest way to determine whether your small engine is a 2-stroke or a 4-stroke is based on the number and type of filler neck (where you fill in oil or gasoline) on the engine. Compare your fuel cap or your oil connection with the pictures below.

  • If the engine only has a single filler connection for the small engine oil and the gasoline, you have a 2-stroke engine.
  • If the engine has two filling ports, one for gas and another separate one for oil, it is a 4-stroke engine. DO NOT mix oil and gas in these engines.

The following series of 2-stroke engines was made available to manufacturers of outdoor power equipment until around 1991:

  • 62030 to 62033
  • 95700 to 95799
  • 96700 to 96799

In addition, Briggs & Stratton recently started manufacturing the following line of 2-stroke snow blower engines:

This is how the oil mixture for the two-stroke engine is determined

Since all two-stroke engines have the same filler hole for fuel and oil, a two-stroke oil mixture is necessary for your outdoor power equipment to function properly. The specific oil / fuel ratio for your lawn mower, snow blower or pressure washer can be found in your operator's manual. Once you've identified the oil / fuel ratio, the chart below can help as it lists two of the common oil / fuel ratios in Briggs & Stratton two-stroke engines.
