this will have a separate, smaller filler cap with either "Oil" written
Mine used to have 710 written on it, for some obscure reason.

Not really. I cheated.






I don't want people thinking I'm some sort of mower geek.

Re: What fuel does a lawn mower take?

This one requires carbs, fresh vegetables and bundles of protein. Occasional meat and limited dairy produce, plus lots of fruit and nuts.

I tend to avoid any sugar source as it affects the way I mow the grass.

Do we need to fill it with ethanol after use?

I've never come across a 2-stroke lawn mower - .

........ You didn't do it too tough as a kid did you?



BEHOLD !!!!

This is just like the first mower I had to use as a kid.
It was kept under the tree in the back yard, and I had to pull out the plugs and clean them before each use.

Our family bought two more mowers, but this old gem outlasted both of them.

That's never been a mower.

Maybe 2-stroke mowers is a US thing - trying to immitate the sound of a Harley.

Oh, so now you're going to pick a REAL fight
(just jokes)

I can guarantee that these old puppies can cut through grass like a hot knife through butter.

....... albeit, it does leave you in a 'blue' carbon monixide cloud of exhaust fumes, but this should inspire you to push faster to stay ahead.

(yes, I'm aware that 'blue' smoke in a 2 stroke means that the oil is a little rich in the mix).


...... and that's an AUSTRALIAN mower my good friend !!!

Well, you'd not use a Japanese engine then... fortunately is there an idiot for everything on youtube:

"Victorian Vintage Mowers Appreciation Society presents a 1992 Rover 2-Stroke XL."
