  1. Hi, can you run your Victa mower on 50:1 petrol to oil mix if you use the synthetic two stroke oil?

      Hi

      You should be able to run your victa 50:1 Using the synthetic two stroke oil, I do not know whether it will affect the reliability. I would assume the higher quality oil would make up for the lighter mix

  2. I always drain the mower fuel tank after use and put it into an air tight container. The fuel lasts much longer. left in the tank the fuel degrades through the breather and if left long enough it will not start or at least becomes very hard to start.

  3. I always start my mower with a spray of start you bastard and never had any problems ,I do let the fuel run dry after closing the turn off valve .
