I just bought an older Jiffy model 30 power auger, and the decal for the instructions is more missing than there! Could someone please let me know what gas/oil mixture is the proper one for an older model. Thanks, and have fun drillin holes!!

Here is a good place to start.

Q: What is the correct mixture of oil and gasoline to use for fuel in a Jiffy?
A: The correct ratio for all Jiffy Power Ice Drills is 40 to 1. This means 3.2 oz of Jiffy Two-Cycle Oil is mixed with 1 Gallon of fresh gasoline. If you don't use a 40:1 oil mixture it will void all warranties.

First, welcome to LSF!

A lot of guys will run AMSOIL mixed much leaner than that - around 80:1, some 100:1. If your jiffy is older, I am guessing you don't need to worry about the warranty issue. When I had my MAG2000 I ran AMSOIL at 80:1 and it ran great. With my new Solo I am running it around 40:1 to 50:1 per Strikemaster's recommendation. I just went through my first tank, and it's running strong.

As ThunderCat stated the mix ratio varies by personal preference and what has worked for each person. People I know run anywhere from 100:1 down to 50:1. I mix a little richer at 80:1 for my auger, chainsaws and weedwhips and have only one gas can to deal with which is non-oxy. Here is the suggested mix ratio chart from Amsoil below and if a data sheet is wanted pm me.

Amsoil Saber Ratios

2.6 oz. per 1 U.S. gallon = 50:1
8 oz. per 5 U.S. gallons = 80:1
1.6 oz per U.S. gallons = 80:1
1.3 oz. per 1 U.S. gallon = 100:1
8 oz. per 6 U.S. gallons = 100:1

The gal at Strikemaster just told me last week that the recommened mixture for their augers, all of them, is now 40:1. And that is retroactive to cover the old models as well. She also recommened going with the cj8y hotter burning spark plug.

Aren't you afraid you are going to burn up your auger? 80:1 sounds pretty lean.
