Mixing gas and oil Four cycle engines have oil in the crankcase, and don't mix gas and oil. Two cycle engines have no oil in the base, and rely on oil mixed with the gas to lubricate the engine. If a two cycle engine has too much oil, it will foul the sparkplugs. If it doesn't have enough oil, it will be severely damaged by friction. Some engines require a 20:1 mix, others a 50:1 mix and others 100:1 mix.
