    Hello I just got Husqvarna 224L 4 stroke trimmer.
    No mixing of fuel need. Like the Stilh.
    My Question is how much oil does it take? I know 10 W 40.

    When the oil level is low, top up using engine oil to the
    edge of the oil refill hole

    Save your small empty bottle that came with your Husqvarna 224L 4 stroke trimmer.
    So you measure the oil from a quart bottle.

    This is what I run 32 ounces / 1 quart last a season.
    Castrol Edge Syntec power technology engine oil SAE 10W-40 1 qt. under $9.00 from wal Mart.
    4 ounces of 10W40 four stroke motor oils just like modern automobiles, and use regular unleaded gasoline. Each Month.

    I have the same trimmer, not sure of the exact amount, just lay it flat on the ground and fill it until the oil is level with the top of the dipstick opening, put a rag under it so if you overfill it doesn't make a mess, I use 10w-30 in mine. No synthetic crap either, just regular oil is fine.
