Fuel Mix For Magnum 3 auger


I have a question regarding the fuel to oil ratio for an older magnum 3 plus auger. Someone told me to mix it at 50 to 1 someone else told me 24 to 1. I am unsure what ratio to use. If anyone out there has any info I'd appreciate it. Thanks

Cav90,
This was the first fall I sent my auger to Strikemaster for a tune-up. I've had it since 1997 and figured it was due.
They told me a to mix the gas:oil at 50:1 although everything says 24:1 including their bottle of oil. (5.33oz)So I used half the bottle of oil to one gallon of gas.
Ran great all winter with less smoke than before.
I would start at 24:1 if it was new but if its already broke in I would go 50:1.
I think you'd be O.K. with anywhere from 2.5 to 5 oz. of oil per gallon of gas.
Don't forget the Sta-bil.

I have the strikemaster magnum 3000 ,it takes 24:1 ratio
thats 5 oz.oil to 1 gal of gas.If the auger is plenty broke in you can run it alittle leaner,not richer...

Thanks for all the advice on the fuel mix. I ended up mixing the gas/oil at 32 to 1 (added a little extra oil for luck) . It seems to be running fine, with not a lot of smoke.
