    Do 2-Strokes Use Oil in the Gas?

    Or does using a can that has 2-STROKE written on it, then filling it with regular gas does then dumping it directly in the tank qualify?

    I'll answer the question.. NO that doesn't count!

    Don't know anyone here didn't know that. But this is a PSA because my guys (yes, guys plural) did not know.

    Now I have a $700 Stihl 250r that is seized up like a rock and Gurals in bound... Rebuild almost $400 if I get the parts from Stihl and they are not in stock.

    WHAT IN THE FUCK!!!!!!!

    Maybe I should move this over to the employees rant.. but this goes above and beyond that?


    For fucking real guys.. really? Are you kidding me? Why in the fuck do you think we only use that can? Weed Wacker Covid can transfer between the equipment if they share cans.?

    I could murder them. For fucking real.

        Never assume that an employee you supervise knows what they are doing correctly.

          For the most part I have no choice. I have three guys. Last year I had 7. I can't micro manage and still get all the work done. These boys are going to have to learn in the fire...

          But that's just shit any normal person would know. My wife knows, the girls at the barn know, my kids know, for sur everyone that applies to work maintenance on a farm and claims to have mechanical experience definitely should know..

              Two stroke anything is generally not encountered by most of the population these days (In the US). If you don't pre-explain to people, they have no prior knowledge to pull from.

                I want a magic gas can that premixes to the ratio I have in my head when I pump only plain fuel in it.

                      So last summer I helped a friend check out boats for her family to buy. Yesterday she asked if I'd take a look at one for her sister. She shows me pictures of a '91 Bayliner with a 2-stroke I/O. No separate oil injection, you have to premix the onboard tank as you fill it. I tried to warn her, but she's pretty set on buying it.

                      I've spent most of my money on women, beer, cars and motorcycles. The rest of it I just wasted.

                        Don't you love it when people ask your opinion on something then tell you the opinion they would like you to have on that thing?

                          I guess the proof is in the pudding on that one.

                          But fuck man.
                          ​one of these kids claims to have had a job landscaping in the past, said he has rebuilt dirt bike and 4 wheeler motors before, and when I hired him he asked if he could bring his own chain saw. (No, you absolutely may NOT bring a chain saw to work.. for suck sake.. fucking kid).
                          For fuck sure the topic of two strokes had come up many times since he starred here.

                          The other one I can more understand.

                          I think more the issue is that no one wants to admit there is anything they don't know.. ever. They will just say Yip and move forward with zero regards to outcome as long as there is a chance they don't have to admit ignorance.

                          If I had to explain everything we do to them before we do it, how and why, I'd never get anything done and my turn over rate would be shorter than the time it takes to bring a guy up to speed. At come point I need to rely on common sense to be able to kick in and someone to ask a question if there is something they don't understand.

                              Job interview.
                              Aptitude test.
                              Simple questionnaire.
                              Audition.

                              Just a few hoops employers make prospective hires jump through before hiring them.

                              I once had a person apply for a delivery position. Their only resource was a transit map of the city. Guess who doesn't have a story of how badly this person performed as an employee? The author of this post.
