lawnmower & chainsaw engine oil
Assuming this is a serious question….
Both 2 stroke? The Stihl almost certainly is, the mower maybe. If they are, yes they may use the same oil for premix though the oil/petrol ratio may be different. Stihl like the petroil to be really oily if you don't use their 2s oil.
If your mower is 4 stroke, no the 2 stroke premix oil for the chainsaw is different from the oil you put in a 4 stroke sump. Cheap multigrade from Halfrauds should do it.
If this question is a wind up, well done…..and use rapeseed oil in both, you'll be reet…. 😀Posted 7 years ago
Chainsaw is either two stroke oil or chain oil. Dont use either of these as a lubricant oil in an engine as one is designed to burn and the other has anti fling qualities (yes really!)If its a Stihl use good quality Stihl stuff.
Mower 10-40 maybe? Use cheap halfords oil, should be OKPosted 7 years ago
Are they the same? Can I put the engine oil I have for my Stihl chainsaw into my petrol push-along lawnmower?
I went to my local garden centre to get some oil but they don't sell lawnmowers anymore! Nor the oil you need for them. Takes up too much space which can be put to better use selling fluffy toys, pot pourri and jars of glass pebbles. 👿Posted 7 years ago
Just checking my works mower and I need sae 30 and not 10-30 as I mentioned.SAE 10-30 will run thinner so you will use more and the engine will run hotter.Posted 7 years ago
Google the make of engine,as alot of mowers use the same engine(honda or Briggs and Stratton for example)
Hope that helps
