Auger Oil Mix question

Question

Loos15

I just got myself a Strikemaster xl3000 auger and I'm pretty much a noob at this stuff. It said it requires a 24:1 mix. Should I be following that guideline?

Also yesterday i bought some gas and an oil mix, but it mixes at 50:1. Can i add another bottle to get it near 24:1? The oil I'm using is echo....

Thanks

I buy the pre-bottled mix from any store that sells augers. Jiffy makes the stuff i use and its only $1.99 per bottle It has the correct amount of oil, and stabil to mix with one gallon of gas. I found that is all you want to mix at one time, this way your gas stays fresh. I had carbourator problems with mine awhile back and my repair man told me to always make sure i use fresh gas.

I had the same question with my new strike master mag 2000. I called strike master service and they told me, their square bottles of smokeless oil are for mixing 40:1. If you mix leaner then that it would void warranty. I also took the advice of some other members and went with Amsoil saber pro. This makes little to no smoke when running auger. It cost a little more but well worth it.

Two 50 to 1 bottles to a gallon of gas will get you to 25 to 1 which is fine. Because it is Echo it should work fine. The thing you dont want to use is marine 50 to 1. That is for water cooled engines. If you start having problems starting it when it is real cold or you are getting too much smoke consider using Amsoil Sabre. One of our sponsors is Oilman and he can get you that oil.

+1 for Amsoil Sabre Professional - I use it at 80:1 - 100:1 on my 24:1 Strikemaster Auger for years. Wonderful.

      Toddrun, You are correct. It seems as if it’s still larvea down there in big bay. Have seen very few , if any mayflies in the air.

      Nice fish Reid, We saw lots of clouds coming out of the mud also, but didn't know what was hatching.  Did see lots of dragonfly's, but not much for fishflies or mayflies in the air.  We didn't have any big fish luck for found keeper fish in the first rock edges around the mud. A guy in our resort claimed he caught a 32" Walleye, but we didn't see any pic's, so not verified, although had several witnesses that confirmed it.  Would have been nice to see it though.

      Bass is my favorite fish to eat.    I always keep them.   If anyone told me not to I would tell them to go to [email protected]#$.    I always eat everything I catch. Catch and release is a choice not a law.   As long as people eat what they catch I have no problem with what ever they catch.   Those who waste fish I have a problem with or those who catch and release too much and end up killing fish I even have a bigger problem with.   Don

      The OP specifically requested advice on how to best address what he personally considers an issue; respectfully. And yes, I do agree, and therefore respect his request enough to answer it; respectfully. I’ve personally dealt with the same conflict of interest in the past and feel that I understand the emotions on both sides enough to offer qualified advice that is more practical and useful than just saying mind your own darn business.

      Hit BSL on Friday to tryand find those slabs again... They were right in the same area as the last time I was out, but could not get one to bite to save my life... They were taunting me jumping all around me... I got some walleyes, nothing over 14" though... The bugs were horrible on the north side, so bad they drove me to the south side haha.

      If someone is legal keeping 15"+ bass, it's none of your business whether they keep 15"+ fish or not. Just walk away and leave it alone.  If you want to change the regulations, try doing it in the proper manner instead of a confrontation at the boat ramp.  I don't know how others would react, but if you approached me, it certainly wouldn't be positive experience.

      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????   
    • Reid Saarela
      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy!

      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.

      That's awesome Don. Very creative and looks like fun.
