Can motor oil or four-cycle oil be used for the fuel mix?
Can regular unleaded gas be used?
Yes, it is the gasoline type recommended for use by the engine manufacturer but must not exceed 94 octane. Gasoline with more than 10% Ethanol is not recommended.
Can the blades on a Jiffy® Ice Drill be re-sharpened?
Yes, Jiffy® Power Ice Drill blades (cutting teeth) can be re-sharpened, but must be taken to a service dealer that does blade sharpening to maintain the precise factory angles. It's wise to keep a properly sharpened or new spare blade on hand. It’s also important to maintain the angles that were ground at the factory. Never try to re-sharpen hand ice drill blades. Once these hand blades start dulling, you must purchase a new set.

What is the correct mixture of oil and gasoline to use for fuel in a Jiffy®?
