    Is there a special oil I should use in a single stage snow thrower fuel mix?
    I just got a used Toro S200 single stage 3hp snow thrower. It didn't come with a manual. So I'm not sure which oil I should use.

    Thanks in advance.

    P.S. I know, wrong forum. I needed an answer fast. Just got it in the mail today, and it's snowing now!. Sorry.

    generally those call for a 50:1 or maybe a 40:1 I would go to the closest small engine shop and ask them they also will have 2cycle oil that will work.

    50:1.... any high quality 2-stroke oil will do.
