Hi Don.


The MTD series lawn mowers are 4 cycle and do not use 2 cycle mix. For best operating results, it is suggested that you use a high octane gas such as 92 or higher.  If you keep you gas longer than 30 days, you should add Sta-Bil to the gas to keep it fresh.You can also keep it simple and just use the Tru-Fuel for 4 cycle engines.



Check the oil before you start the lawnmower.  If oil is needed, you can use a 30w 4-Cycle Small Engine Oil in temperatures above 40 F.  You can also use the 10w-30, but it may result in more oil consumption.

Just to be safe, change oil after 6 hours of operation, than about every 3 months after that.  The more you change the oil, the longer the engine will last as there is no oil filter in this lawnmower.
