Greetings Mary,

The ones I've used just use regular unleaded gasoline. Kind of like most lawn mowers.

That's not to say that YOURS is definitely the same. But be careful what you put in it!

You wouldn't happen to have the owners manual would you?

some manufacturers recommend their brand of oil, but in my opinion any name brand 2-cycle oil mixed at 40:1 would work. in the long run it would help to know the engines required ratio. you could foul plugs or eventually plug the muffler if it is too rich. most 2-cycles run on 32:1, 40:1, or 50:1. thats the reason i mentioned 40:1. its in the middle and should be ok.

You'll need to know whether if the engine is a 2 stroke cycle or 4 stroke cycle. A 4 stroke has a crankcase that oil goes into. It will take clean gasoline. A 2 stroke cycle engine needs the mix of gas & oil. That lubricates the engine. If not the engine will sieze up in 20 minutes flat. Take a look at the snowblower for it's labels, see if you can find anything. If not go to a lawnmower shop with the snowblower & have them help you out. C.
